Engine no longer stops when keyed off

I just replaced the coil (35135/35135A) on my Sears (917.254630) riding mower. It starts and runs great but when you turn off the key, the engine stays running. Any thoughts?

Most small engines incorporate a ground wire that makes contact when the key is put to the off position. check to ensure that the wire is hooked to the switch and in the correct position

John deere model240 mower will not start. Have replaced coil and still not getting spark at the plug . Engine turns over strong

Only option left.... 12 volts feeding coil is not there. The ignition key applys the 12 volts to the coil in the "Run" and "Start" positions. Verify 12 volts at input to coil and then (if needed) follow wire back to key and confirm voltage there....and (if needed) follow input wire to key from battery. One of those critters is open - since you have already confirmed the coil/spark plug wire is not at fault.

My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
Run your mower again and when it starts to run rough, loosen your gas cap. If it runs right again, you have a stopped up gas tank vent. clean it or replace the cap. Could be a bad coil too. I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane

JD mower-only one coil firing

I just switched the coils around. The other cylinder went dead, so I knew I had a bad coil. Replaced the coil and mower runs great.
