craftsman hydrastatic 42" rider won't start

Started up and then died. Will turn over fine but will not start. Checked under seat and bypassed switch...no luck. Checked connections on polarized electrical plugs and no luck.....any ideas?

It wouldn't hurt to know a little about what you have.

Does it have spark?

Most mowers have a safety device that doesn't allow you to bypass the seat switch.

Please post mower model number and engine model number. Much easier to help knowing exactly what we have.
