Thanks for your response. Did our problem occur suddenly, or gradually, over time?
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
It is possible that either your ignition switch, or your electric starter is bad. Do you have a multimeter, to use, for checking to see if you are getting voltage to your starter?

Your 40 amp fuse, should be on a wire that attaches to the positive post on your battery.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have checked that and it is ok
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
Are you saying that your fuse is ok?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it is
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
Can you borrow a 12 volt test light or a multimeter from someone? We need to determine if you are getting voltage to your electric starter.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I can will try to later or tomorrow and get back with you
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
This will be great.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
Take a look at the schematic above.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
We can check tomorrow.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
The schematic shows the voltage circuit from your battery, to your electric starter. If your circuit is good, then your starter is likely at fault.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
Double check the polarity of you battery. Make sure that your wires are attached correctly. Make sure that you have voltage on both side of your fuse. Check for voltage, in and out of your ignition switch, and in and out of your blade brake switch.
