Craftsman LT 2000 wont start

2009 LT 2000, serial # 091012ZD82531.

Mower has fire, fuel flow is fine, turns over but wont start. The parking safety switch operates properly but the seat switch does not ie: mower will turn over without depressing the seat switch. The mower was used a couple of days prior to this problem, ran fine, parked it and then this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Craftsman LT 2000 wont start

Operator presents in the seat is not required to crank. Only 2 safeties are involved. The brake switch and the PTO switch. If the PTO is disengaged and the brake is depressed- it is set to crank. Why it is not starting is a different path. Do you have a way to check for spark? There is also a small solenoid below the carburetor. Can you here it click when the key is turned to on? Any question on the integrity of the fuel?The actual model # from below the seat would be the most help with your reply. Possibly 917XXXXXX
