    to much current draw... check for short (bad wire insulation) one or more of the ignition switches wire tabs touching each other due to damage, rough handling or shade tree mechanic working on machine, frozen engine or starter motor, wrong size fuse.

    The fuse is the same size that has always been in there. I did take the ignition switch apart. It has been stored outside this summer. How do you check for frozen engine or starter motor? Could outside storage do this? I didn't see any damage to wires.

    scott the last time you ran the mower was the engine running OK? If it was then it's probably not a frozen engine.

    I'm not fimiliar with your machine so I hate to give troubleshooting advice that could cause damage to your machine or you to injure yourself.

    We have experienced people here that can guide you safely through the troubleshooting process, someone will be along, keep checking your thread.

    Scott I don't know the depth of your mechanicle abilities or your machine, it's not sensible or safe for me to guide you through troubleshooting procedures. If I knew your machine things would be different, glad you understand and thanks back at ya.

    Scott,
    I, finally, got a chance to respond to your post. In your early post, you said that the fuse blows when the ignition is turned on. In later posts, you state that the fuse blows after the engine starts to crank. I will assume that the later post is correct. It sounds like a starter issue, but could be a relay, safety switch or a chaffed wire. Check out these drawings. Holler back if you need more input.
