Hello welcome to Just answers. My name is***** you checked all of your safety switches? Is your PTO off? Is the brake pedal touching the safety switch? All things I would look for if it came to my shop. Before taking apart to get the coil since it was running..

The only thing it has is the on off throtle switch. I took the handle apart and it seemed to be working fine. Ckex for broken wires and such and haven't found anything

I would look at the coil and remove the killswitch wire if you have no spark then I would say a coil..also make sure your sparkplug is good. If you have spark then replace the wire or check for brakes
