If you jump the solenoid from the battery post , to the switch terminal on the same solenoid, does the starter turn the engine? Do you have a voltmeter to test the battery voltage?

With zturn mower not starting from key, most times it is on of the arm switches not making. It may not be switch, but the wires between the switches. Need to use ohm meter to check continuity between the switches, if switches check good.
