Honda GX 340-Used to start and run no problem, now nothing

One minute the electric start was working and now there is nothing. Brand new battery and it is fully charged. Where do I start looking first?

    GX 340 was installed on a Garden Tractor. Started and run fine before mounting engine. I have checked grounds, Battery, all connections and wires, Fuse in control box. Im not sure what happened? Engine will pull start but will not shut off with key? Any ideas?

    honda motor uses a black with red line wire for ignition cut-out short to ground and see if motor cuts out also located by the low oil level sensor and keyswitch box must be grounded since the ground lead of switch is fastened by a screw inside the box.if you ground the lead and does not shut off you may hav an open circuit in the ignition coil especially if this engine uses a pulse generator also located by flywheel.

I think both problems could be wiring in the key switch box. Sometimes the connectors shake loose.
