Lawnmower starter problem

I have a 7yo Bolens riding lawnmower. Cranked up fine but when I turned it off, starter motor kept running. Disconnected battery and starter switch. When battery was reconnected, same problem. What's causing this and how do I make it stop?

Hello Raven Pearl,

Sounds like you have a sticking starter solenoid if the key switch is returning to the run position after starting, The proper fix is to replace it with a new one. In case you don't know which part that is, Here's a pic of one;

Good Luck
