If you move the throttle handle to the full choke position it should 'choke'
the engine to sleep but that's not best for the engine. If you have a
"Stop" position on the throttle i suspect that the ground wire has become
disconnected. Look for a place where the switch comes to a stop and touches
a metal post. Now, look for a wire attached to the post. It should end at
a connection to the engine block. One end or the other has become
disconnected. Reattach and it should work.
This either a troll or incomplete information!
Can't tell from this posting whether we are speaking about an electric mower
with a defective switch? If so where is switch located? i.e. pull the plug
Or, say, a gasoline powered machine with a problem in the throttle linkage
and/or with a breakage in the electric shut off which is supposed to 'kill'
the ignition when the throttle is in the zero position?
Respectfully suggest post a more complete question and/or take it to a
