Cub Cadet LT Series - No power from batt

Hi all. I have a Cub Cadet LT1050 2007 model. I had the mower on its back (rear wheels and seat) for a couple of weeks to fix a steering column flange that broke. After I set the mower back on all four tires I can no longer start the mower. No power at all. No lights on the display and no power to the starter, totally dead.

I have already replaced the battery with a new one. If I route power to the starter it will turn over (but not start). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Don't do that

Hopefully there is just a fuse blown and all the wires still have the smoke left in them. Follow the wires and look for fuse holders and check the fuses.

Already mentioned NOT to turn it on its back....
I would remove the spark plug (s) and try to turn the engine by hand a few revs. If you find a blown fuse and the starter begins working, crank it over with the plug (s) removed and prepare for an oil bath.
If you get no where with these steps, post back with the engine numbers as well and we will try to get ya back up.

BFHFixit,

Many thanks. I'll turn the mower on its back again as you suggest and follow the wires and check the fuses.

Just kidding! If it doesn't work I'll repost with the engine info. I believe that it is a Kohler Courage.
