sound like the seat saftey switch under seat you can either unplug it and see if that works or jumper the wires with a piece of wire if either works replace switch

some have fuel filter some do not , but it sounds like you have contaminated fuel and is is clogging up fuel line or carburetor,look into gas tank with a flash light and see if there are specs floating at bottom of the tank, if there are drain tank of all gas and remove tank and flush it out with brake cleaner, then disconnect both ends of fuel line and spray through tube into white paper towel until u see no dirt/debris. then remove air filter clean foam( soapy water, dry re-oil 10w30 is ok). remove carb from engine spray through main port with carb cleaner not brake cleaner, and use tube and spray through inlet tube while holding throttle wide open reassemble and it should run fine, if not u may need to disassemble carb if not comfortable with this then order new one usually under $100

these are common for doing this ,if you dont want to pull it down and hone the cyl. then i would use a heavier oil say 20w/50and that will probabley solve your problem

Yes its pretty easy you can do it.Are you sure the carb is bad most of them just need a good cleaning .I would disassemble be careful there are some little parts in there and if you are careful and pay attention as you disassemble it you can just clean it .Go to auto parts store get a can of spray carb cleaner .remove bowl be careful the is a float in there a little square or round bellows .Slide the pin out and then the fuel loat pin underneate the float now take out any adjustment screws you can find and spray cleaner in every hole you can find several times and reassemble if idle or fuel mixture screws were removed a standard setting of 1 1/2 turns out from seated position is the norm and some adjustment may be needed once running either in or out till runs smooth.
