Why did it flood? That problem may need to be delt with. But for now remove plug, crank over to clear cylnder, Replace or clean the plug making sure it is clean and dry. Try to start.

Grease plug locatiom snapper rider


if it's a rear engine rider with a 28 or 30 inch deck the grease fitting is underneath the deck... If it is a rear engine rider, close the fuel off and stand the mower on end but for a short period of time only. This applies to ALL rear engine riders from Snapper up until about 2 years ago when they made a SERIOUS mistake and redesigned them

I have a Snapper rider that I bought in 1999. I


Gene, if it is getting spark as you say, it is not "the neutral switch if it has one, (under the seat??). Or something electrical for sure"
I would be more inclined to think along the lines of a leaking valve, most likely the exhaust valve.
You don't give any information about the engine so it isn't possible to tell you anything specific about it.
If it is an OHV engine though, it could be as simple as removing the valve cover and adjusting the rocker arms to get the proper clearance

Snapper mower electric start problem


On most mowers, that red wire will connect to the battery. that could be your problem.
you didn't say if it is a rider or not, or how old it is.
Touch the wire to positive post on the battery, with the key off, remove quickly if it sparks.
if no spark, hold it to the battery while turning the key.
if the engine tries to start, connect it permanently.
