Without testing the electrical circuit for the starter we would only be guessing . Looking at a wiring diagram an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter is the proper way to diagnose these type problem's , not guessing or looking for magical fixes on here . You hubby broke the shift interlock system , a safety system that doesn't allow the gear selector to be moved into a gear without the brake pedal pressed. It's controlled electrically , parts involved - brake switch , wiring , interlock solenoid . More then likely the interlock solenoid is bad. But that's a guess ,without testing. You don't know how these thing's work , best take it to a qualified repair shop that does. Do you like replacing parts that don't need to be replaced ? Making parts stores rich !

The spark on the 25 hp Kohler is Magneto. There is likely an interlock to the PTO and Seat safety interlock. The magneto appears in some lawn garden applications to be connected via the safety interlock?
So when the engine turns the magnetic field of the flywheel activated the engine spark but if the interlock safety switches are not enabled the spark the magneto is disabled resulting in no spark. A lost spark is likely a defective or corroded switch.
I'm assuming you have a no-crank condition. check interlock relay and safety interlock. Safety interlock is on shifter if you have automatic. It's on the clutch pedal arm if you have manual. Interlock relay should be in engine compartment relay box. You can bypass both of these and the ignition switch by jumping the solenoid. See troubleshooting procedures here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines and let me know if you have questions.
Offhand, a possible loose / corroded terminal / connector. This would require tracing the supply +12 and the safety interlocks to the ignitor. A DVM/VOM for the safety interlocks while a testlight for the IGN +12 would be preferably used. Perhaps the wiring diagram here would serve as a guide.
This is not the safety interlock switch. This flat bar keeps shredder paper from backfilling into the cutters. The safety interlock switch is a vertical slot on the body that a tab on the top fits into.
