Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Do you have a voltmeter to see if the switch has voltage? Did it happen after you backing up? The reverse switch can cut out the blade operation and if the switch sticks, the circuit is open. Can you test the clutch by taking two jumper wires direct from the battery to the clutch, to see if the magnet engages?
