Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
The power for your ignition switch, comes directly from your battery, via a wire with an inline fuse. Your fuse is likely blown.
Check your fuse first. You and I can continue from here. Thanks again!
Thanks for your reply. Did you see your starter solenoid?
I am back with you. Sorry for the delay. Your fuse should be inline, on a small wire that attaches to one of the large post on your solenoid. Your small wire will be attached along with a large red cable. We can continue from here.
Thank you for checking. You did not see a fuse on that wire?
I am back with you. Thanks for your patience. I do apologize for the delay in responding to you. I have been trying to find a wiring schematic for your mower. I have not located one. If you have either a 12 volt test light, or a multimeter, I believe we can work without a wiring schematic.
I am back with you. I found a wiring schematic.
Rather than a fuse, you have a Fusible Link. Your fusible link is inline, on a small wire that is attached to your starter solenoid, along with the large red cable, that comes from your battery. Your fusible link have one wire on the end that attaches to your solenoid, and there are two wires coming from the opposite end of your fusible link.
As you mentioned, you saw two wires coming from a single wire, and one of the wires are going to your ignition switch, and the other one is going to a rectangular shaped thing on the side of your motor. The rectangular shaped part is your voltage regulator. Actually the two wires are leading from your fusible link.
So, to locate your fusible link, look in the area where the two wires, meet the single wire.
Your fusible will need to be replaced. You and I can continue from here.
