I have a Yardman mower that is not a year old yet. It will not start. The motor turns freely, but won't engage. The last time it worked, when I cut it off it backfired. What could be the problem?

Hi, have you checked the spark plug? There is also a sensor on the seat, that if you are not sitting down, it will not crank. Safety reason. :) Hope you get it fixed.

How do I fix my 15 hp Yardman riding mower? When I turned the key it tried to start. It would turn over once then stop. So I started getting into it and I came across a red wire hooked under the carburetor that was nicked by the starter. I cut it and twisted it together then tried to turn it on. The same thing happened.
Then I traced the black wire to the coil and it ran under the engine where there was a connector (still the black wire). I took it apart and put it back together. Now there is no power when I turn the key.
