I have a John deere 14 Hp lx172 Tucumseh engin it will not fire except when the key is on start when you turn the key loose it will not fire. Any information would be appreciated.

There is an ignition relay.
it is powered by-
the crank circuit
through the seat switch when not cranking.
I'd suggest checking the seat switch to make sure it is closed when occupied.

Thanks very much it was a broken wire that went to the seat switch. You was very helpful.
