Does it have a seat interlock (you get off the seat and the engine shuts off)?
If so, may be a problem with wiring in that system; if not, you'll have to trace the wiring of your starting system for faults, starter could be bad. I'd get a small engine repair manual for your engine brand (avail on line and in some small engine repair/sales stores; maybe in auto parts place as well).

remove that small front panel under the steering wheel there should be a cylonoid in there . you can try bypassing the cylinoid by taking a screw driver and touch the positive to the side terminal . if it turns over then its your cylinoid. make sure your blades arent engaged first.

Agreed, I just wanted him to know that if your good advice helped, he would know how to search for the right part (in case he has no idea what to call it) :)
