Resolved Question:

I have a John Deere JS46 walk self propelled mower. The electric start does not work (doesn't crank, doesn;t do anything). Have tested the battery (in fact used a know ggod battery) and it makes no difference. The mower starts fine with the manual pull cord. Any suggestions on what I should look for. The mower is less then one year old....
