Simplicity Broadmoor Would not turn over

4 months ago

I haven't posted on this board in years, but just in case anyone else is googling this problem. Went to start my mower tonight and there was no response when I turned the key. Started troubling shooting, Starter and solinoid good, PTO switch good, fuse good, seat switch good. My brake lock out switch is a pain get the connector off, so I came in and googled that switch removal. I stumbled across the owners manual, looked at the starting instructions and they indicated the Cruise Control lever must be in neutral to start. I never use this lever, but sure enough, I guess I bumped it forward a little at some point. Enough to hit the lock out switch. Would have saved me an hour if I had checked that first.
