Does the carburetor have a solenoid in the base of it? If it does, does this solenoid click as soon as you turn on the key? The solenoid can be stuck, it plugs the main jet in carburetor.
If you remove the fuel line at the carburetor, do you have fuel when cranking? If fuel is reaching the carb, remove the float bowl and check for fuel flowing thru theneedle valve passage, this will also give you chance to check the solenods pluger , to be sure it is not stuck.
No, if no fule check back to the supply, is this gravity flow or does it have a block mounted fuel pump?
What is Deere mower model? Where is the fuel coming from? Many Deere's have suction tube in top of tank, and the tube and hose to the pump has to be vacuum tight, or pump will not suck.
Don't know where I cam up with Deere! But ok, of the fule is getting to the pump, it should work. If no output when cranking, pump is bad, or it is not being worked by the engine side cam?? Has to be at the pump!
if the fuel is
Yes, take off the pump and bench test it and feel inside to see if the pump is being worked. If not you can add a pulse pump instead of the cam pump.
with gravity flow from tank, you can bypass the pump and go direct to the carburetor to see if engine runs!
