I was using my mower for the first time and it ran well then the mower would not self propelled and also NOT stop when

the blade control was released. Trouble shoot guide refers only to propelling issue but not the failure to stop engine. Please advise, thank you
Asked by: ead
Don't know about the self propel, but mine wouldn't shut off either. When you pull the bar to the handle, the mower will start. When you let go to make it stop, there's a little lever where the wire attaches to the mower. It's supposed to contact the kill switch (you have to get down to look under and see the switch). Just move the stop bar lever up or down so that it makes contact with the kill switch. Hope this helps.
