    2000 John Deere 425 won't start

    Drove my 425 yesterday and it ran fine. Today it will not start. I do not think it is a fuel problem, I gave it a shot of starter fluid in the carb and it would not fire. I can see that the choke plate is closing. I installed the mower deck yesterday and it started after that, but not today. Is there a fuse or something I should check? Thanks

    If it wouldn't start with starting fluid, it's about gotta be spark. I don't know about the 425 and fuses, but did you check to see if the spark plug was firing?
