JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Need the model number of the engine. The 875 is a series, not a model. Model example is(###) ###-####B1. Have you removed the spark plug to see if the engine will spin?

OK, did you try the starter solenoid test? Mower has three safety switches that can keep starter from engaging, the seat switch, brake switch and the pto switch. and it has a reverse switch. All have to make to complete the start circuit.
