Snapper Self Propelled: Safey Cutoff Diagrams?

I have a Snapper model P21507B, Ser# 16283267.
I'm suddenly getting no spark, and believe it's related to the safety cutoff features on this mower.
There is, of course, the handle cutoff. There also appears to be a cutoff where the chute attaches.
Is anyone familiar with these cutoff features? Any diagrams showing how the wiring on them runs?
Thanks,
divebri69

There is a single wire going to both of them from the ignition coil. That's it. If they ground out, they will shut the engine down. To test the ignition problem and find out if it is the coil or the kill circuits, unplug the wire plugged onto the bottom of the coil and check for spark. If still no spark, the coil is bad. If it does spark, then you have a problem with the kill wiring or switches.

Got if fixed

I got if fixed. The handle grounding circuit was messed up. It's good now.
Thanks to all.
