SOURCE: mower won't start
im sure the switch is bad, trying to jump is a good way to find out if the starter is bad but of course wont start cause of no spark, alot of these have electronic magnetos

Check to see if there are any safety switches on the seat that may have gone bad and aren't allowing for it to start. Also check the clutch. Some mowers require it to be depressed in order for the engine to turn over.

it sounds like its the exhaust is blocked up or/and air filter, its the back fire that makes me think its a blocked exhaust,, iv had it before!
try taking it off and starting it up,,,,and yes its going to be noisy if it go's! untill you clean out the pipe, then put it back on again,

I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.
