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.
