Customer Question

Mower has two arm switches, one of them is stuck. Check the arm switches , and give them a good shot of WD40 and wok the arms to free them up. If either switch is stuck, the engine is killed as soon as any movement is made.

I sprayed the switches you advised and they move freely, however the mower is still cutting off when I pull the levers together, to put in reverse or forward

Do you have a volt/ohm meter to check the switches for continuity? Need to see if the switches are working and the wires between them have continuity.
