First check the safety switch under seat is working by bridging the gap.
Try the same with the safety switch on hand brake.
Check fuse hasn't blown.
Check spark plug is intact and cable is correctly fitted.
Check in line fuel filter.
Ensure battery is fully charged, a drop in output will result in not starting.
Hope this resolves the problem.

You probably have in your area a number of small engine repair shops. You will have to get on the phone and start calling around for a used mower deck. They usually have many old mowers in there yards. If you decide you only want new it could be very costly. GOOD LUCK.
