Craftsman mower 917.255520 electrical problem

1st Happy Fathers Day to all....
Mowed the lawn for 1 1/2 hours, no problems. Park the tractor came back to put in the shed 1/2 hour later, and it's dead not a click nothing dead,dead, dead.
Battery is new and full charge. Where do I start? Solenoid , key switch, jump the starter????? I don't see how to by pass the kill switches on this machine.

First, check the lever that engages the blades. Is it possible you left the mower deck engaged when you turned it off? It has a safety switch. It needs to be dis-engaged to start the tractor.
we will start there. If that's not it, we'll try other things.

If the blades are turned off, check the fuse.
