There may be a number of issues with the lawn mower. The motor may need oil or gas. The intake filter may be too dirty, clean it up then put it back in when it is dry.

The blades might not be able to spin around, maybe something is obstructing them, causing the machine to not turn over the engine / motor.

Generally the ignition switch activates headlights on a riding mower and the start position only send current to the starter solenoid.

Where is the stop switch on a Briggs and Stratton mower engine?

If the mower has a shift knob control for "Start" "Run" and 'Stop', the kill switch will be on the end of the cable that leads to the throttle bracket. If the mower has the safety handle that shuts off the mower when it is not depressed, the kill switch will be at the end of the cable that leads from the handle to the engine. If the mower is operated with an on-off ignition switch, the kill switch wire will be spliced to the switch "off" wire some where between the throttle cable and the switch.

What does flooding your engine on your lawn mower mean?

It means the engine has been fed too much gas. If you depress the gas pedal on a car or truck many times before you start it, the same thing will happen.

It needs a certain ratio of gas and air in order to create the explosion in the piston chamber that makes the engine work.
