Try looking at the directional lever at the Transmission. The PTO for the deck will shut off when shifting into reverse. You may have to simply disconnect or jumper the reverse switch depending on if it is normally closed or normally open. Try it both ways to see what works. Also check the engine oil level, The low oil level switch will shut the engine down if more than a quart low.

Do not know the model you have, but make sure your seat switch is working and wires are in place properly. Most of these non start issues on the later models are because of the seat safety switch failure.

Carb. Needs needle valve or float repair to keep fuel from flooding. If it does not have shut off valve in fuel line from tank to carb. Install one and ALWAYS close when storing between mowing. .

The switch is where you engage the mower. It is either a push pull button, or it is a lever that you move to engage mower. First follow the wires from the switch to see if possibly broken due to a flying sharp object which may have cut one or two. Due to the sudden stop this is what I would suspect. Good Luck Friend.

Just a thought, just check if the pulley does not have a locking nut or key, if locking nut would potentially be small allen key threaded shaft between pulley and axle, and key would be identified as a little slot or gap between axle and pulley, hope this might help, good luck
