Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Do you hear anything when you try to start the machine now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. It doesn't even try to turn over.
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

Make sure that the deck engage lever has been pulled back to disengage the mowing deck. This happens a lot, you will be mowing along the machine quits and you just don't think about it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is disengaged.

Have you checked the fuse to see if by chance it is blown?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Don't laugh. Where would that be located.
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

Near the starter solenoid, under the hood of the mower. It is most likely a 20 amp fuse.
