Bolen's push mower started and stopped

I had posted prior to this about my Bolen's push mower that continued to run even after the safety bail was released. I changed the spark plug and the problem was solved. I used the mower several times since with no problem. Today after a few pulls, the mower started and as I was starting to mow the mower stopped and would not restart. The gas was full....any idea what happened?

Well, your spark plug was not the original problem. Most likely a kill switch or cable problem. Start for checking for spark and if there is none go there.

I'm no expert with mowers. I'll try to get it started, but if not then I will scrap it. It was a workhorse for me, but I won't put any money into it at a repair shop. I'll buy a new one. Where is the kill switch??

It would be on the mechanism that the zone cable hooks to.
