What does the engine do when you turn the key currently? Turn over? Nothing? Click?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
nothing
Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

Okay then. Lets start by trying to jump the solenoid then. It is possible the solenoid has went out if nothing happens when the key is turned. Do you know how to jump the solenoid with a screwdriver?

mower In garage I'm a the house can't check until morning just need trouble shooting guide
Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

okay. If nothing is happening when key turned. Check that the fuse is not blown. If fuse is bad, replace of course. If fuse is good, jump solenoid. If mower turns over/starts, replace the solenoid as it is no good. Could be a bad safety switch by nothing happening, but solenoid is #1 cause of mowers not starting when nothing happens when key is turned. Let me know the outcome of the solenoid, and we can troubleshoot further if needed.
