I just got new Toro Time cutter SS 4225 riding mower. I used only one time. Now it wont crank at all.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It won't crank. Battery is 12.5 Volt. I made sure that motion control levers are in park and blade control is disengaged. it is brand new machine.

Additional details - The fuses are okay, and the bypass level position is in "operating the machine".

The safety switch is okay too.

Does the fuel solenoid click when you turn the key to the on position?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.
If it does, you have a safety switch from keeping the starter from working. Check the seat switch and it's harness, and then the arm switches. Work the switches by hand and use some WD40 on them to free up a sticking switch.
