So this mower is only 5 years younger than I am... I was having problems with it last weekend when I was trying to get it out. Charged the battery, checked the carb and checked the starter. Everything looked fine. I bypassed the seat safety cause I thought that was the culprit. Put everything back together and it started and purred like a kitten. It was to late to start mowing so I put her up. Yesterday I was going to mow so I started it up and went to engage the blades and it died. I think there is a safety switch of some sort at the end of the engage/disengage lever under the dash. That is a whole other problem cause I can't figure out how to take the dash off... please advise.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it would be a better fit on gardening.se – Hᴇʀʙɪᴇ Apr 26 '16 at 14:02

    Thanks for the help!!!.. Reason I didn't post there is because the whole first page was asking about plants. Unless anyone else objects I'll leave my small engine problem in the mechanics section. If you don't want to offer any help please leave. – Chris Apr 26 '16 at 14:12

    This is not a question for Gardening IMO. This is a small engine site as well. This should remain open. – DucatiKiller Apr 26 '16 at 16:35

    Agree with @DucatiKiller - This question is an exact fit for this SE ... I don't have much more than a clue about who is trying to close it, but would suggest it stay open. Not saying there isn't crossover here, but we've had several questions on power mowers. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 26 '16 at 20:28
