Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Take a close look at the discharge chute or mulch cover on the side of the mower deck. There is a safety switch there that has to be depressed in order for the machine to crank or start. You might try removing the cover and reinstalling it just to make sure that it is contacting the switch good.
