Question about Garden
Engine starts fine but does not shut down either with key of getting off mower. New ignition swith is installed to no avail.
All the ignition switch does is complete the circuit or break the circuit. It sounds like in this case the circuit is completed all the time. Try unplugging the wire plug from the new switch while the motor is idling and see if the circuit is broken and the engine shuts down. It could be you got a bad switch from stock. Rare but it happens.

I don't think the starter solenoid is involved here. T
There should be a fuel shut off solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor which shuts off fuel when the ignition is turned off -- this is a safety feature as well as protection from damaging backfiring.
This fuel shut off solenoid could be stuck open.
There is a switch under the seat which opens and closes the solenoid depending on whether the seat is occupied. This switch as well as the ignition switch control the solenoid.

does it turn over slow or fast if it turns slowly thats the problem so it could be battery or starter they have to have a good amount of rpms to burn fuel right when starting if not it floods out the engine with gas hope this helps thanks wade
