Default Lesco Walk Behind Mower

i was wanting to know if anybody on here has a ( Lesco 48" com. Walk Behind Mower )

i am having problems with mine .Here is the problem

when i turn the key to the start point. and then go and pull the pull rope nothing happens . But if i diss connect the key switch i can then pull the stater rope and it starts. no to kill the mower i have to re attach the the key switch wire. i have tried to install a push button toggle button and it does nothing .

my key switch is a ( 1 term. 2 post. key switch )

and my local part's dealer does not carry the key switch that i need .

could it be my ( neutral switch )

any help would be nice . thanks in advance

first off do you have a multimeter? if so I would test the key switch to start with then test the nutral and break switches.

what your describing does not make any sense to me it you change out a single pole switch it with a toggle it should operate the same as if you unpluged a wire and repluged it in.

remember though the engine likely kills by going to ground so the electrical system could seem backwards to you if you have not worked with a lot of kill circuits.

remember I said the engine should go to ground to kill it, the switch on the other hand could go to a relay. I unfortunatly do not have any experance with Lesco equipment, I have never even seen one on a trailer around here.

I was under the impression they were closer to a cub cadet for some reason. I am not sure if they are even still produced.

LoL but they do still make the Lesco mowers they just came out with not to long ago a 2011 model

you can find the lesco models/mowers on the john deer website


i tried installing the new kill switch and that did not even work so i guess i am going to have to order a $22.00 key switch since that what it points out to be

I will look into Lesco when I get a chance, I just found out that Murray(Briggs and stratton power products) was making the John Deere stuff at the box store, I had always been told it was in house at deere but apparently not. Hey at least they can say american made as it is produced in KY.
