I can’t get my open faced fishing reel to cast. What do I do?

I have used an open faced reel countless times. My new one that I bought won’t cast. I have tried everything I can think of. It feels like it locks up. I have even ran the line down the pole several times. It came with the line on the reel. Could the line be on the reel wrong?
