I have run into this problem before on a machine like this. It ended up being in the electronic brake controller, the pins in the brake controller had corroded and broken off, this was causing the brake to not disengage and the machine would not start due to poor connection at the electric brake controller. I would suggest taking a good look at the brake controller and the electrical connections going to it. Thanks
