The top cover has to be removed to access the area below the panel. Let me look for owners manual.
on the lawnboy site, it does not recognize 320E.??
So I can't find owners manual!
Send pdf of manual
I have manual!
Page 13 shows you can remove the panel and let it hang, to get to spark plug, this will let you get to the back side of the panel and look for the shutoff /keyswitch.
Switch can be locked, it may have gotten hot, and melted! all it does is short out the kill wire to the coil. If you ground the single wire, going to the engine it will kill it. To start it, just insulate the wire, so it does not ground out!
The two wires,, one goes to engine, the other goes to a ground point. Just keep the wire going to the engine isolated, so it does not ground out. To kill engine, just touch it to the metal of the engine?
