Are you using a voltmeter to test with? If the electric fuel solenoid does not click when key is flipped on and off, the keyswitch may not have battery voltage. It comes direct form the starter solenoid to the fuse, to the switch

I checked all of the switches previously mentioned with a voltmeter and the battery is fully chargedOnce upon a time, say around 30 years ago, I was a John Deere mechanic but thing have changed a lot.

OK> seems like voltage to key, or the keyswitch is bad. Safety switch would affect start, but does not affect fuel solenoid , it gets voltage at key on.
