After you arrived home with your new mower, did you drive it off of your trailer, or did you push it off?
Double check to see if your parking brake is on. If your parking brake is not on, your engine will not start. You and I can continue from here.

I will be away from my computer until 3:00 central time today.
I am back now.
Our problem is definitely related to one of your safety switches. It has to be a switch, in your start circuit, that is not fully closing, resulting in an open circuit. After you return, we will begin by focusing on the safety switches that are activated by your left and right control arms. Sometimes these switch can be misaligned, preventing the plunger inside your safety switch, from fully depressing, when your control arms are in park position.
You and I will figure it out ...
