the fuse next to ignition is good but where is the fuse next to the starter locatedno but i would like to do this later when my son in law is here and have him at the mower may be tomorrow so what is your phone number?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

There will be only the one fuse. Do you hear the fuel solenoid in the carburetor click if you flip the key on and off? If not, check to be sure there is voltage past the fuse holder to the key switch.
