Smile Yard Machine wont start

Have a riding yard machine that wont start. I know that there is a switch for both the blade engagement and the clutch that is probably causing the problem but cant seem to find them. Any tips on where and what to look for. These switches disable the mower from starting i believe but cant find them. Thank You

The two switches you mentioned don't prevent the ENGINE from starting they prevent it from spinning over, the seat switch, among other things, would prevent it from starting. Do you have a "no-spin" situation or a "no-start" issue? I'm going to guess a no-spin problem and with such it may be one, or more, of the switches related to the start circuit but it may not. Other components related to the start circuit are the battery, battery cables, inline fuse, starter, starter cable, key switch and solenoid. Do you have a test light or a test meter in order to diagnose the problem?

Under normal conditions, the fuse should never blow. If you continue to blow the fuse then you'll need to find the source of your trouble.
