Question about Craftsman Garden
I have the same problem as BryanWhite70. I have the Honda engine. Battery is good, oil and plugs are good. It just stopped working on 9/3/09. I do NOT know how to short it to test. Also, I cannot locate my owners manual to ID the starter solenoid, let alone know what I'm looking for to get a replacement part from the friendly Sears parts department. Any help would greatly appreciated. The grass is getting taller by the minute.

The neutral safety switch is located in the shifter housing.
Here is a link to a good article on this topic, that would beat an explanation from me.
Yes, it sounds like the NSS is the culprit.

Check the battery terminals. If they have become corroded you could be getting a bad connection. When the starter is engaged it creates such a power load at the connections that it will arc and loose power. Or, you could have a bad ground wire off the battery. Also check the positive cable leading down to the starter. Most of the mustangs had the battery cable leading to the starter between the engine and the exhaust manifold. Eventually they melt through and can cause a short. This would require replacing the cable. Good luck.

If you have 3 qts. of oil in your mower, drain it immediately. It only holds 3 PINTS or 48 ozs or 1 1/2 qts. Next, remove your spark plug and put the end away from the hole (to prevent possible arching and fire) and crank the engine over. Probably, a lot of oil/gas will blow out, clearing your cylinder. Clean the plug and try to restart. If it still reaches a point where the engine will not turn past while trying to crank, the valves need to be readjusted. Also check by smelling the dipstick that there is no gas mixed in the oil. That would mean your carb needle and seat are leaking.
