Craftsman Mower Won't Start

I used this Craftsman LT2000 just 2 days ago. It ran good, but I had enough of the "no mow in reverse" BS so I did some research and found you can just unplug the connector, so I did and the mower hasn't run since. It turns over well, is getting gas, the is fuse good, it just won't start. What am I missing? Oh, I plugged the connector back in and there is no difference.

Also, is there a neutral setting? if here is, does the mower roll forward?

You might need to change the air filter and clean the carburetor. Here is a short video from YouTube: https://www.you … ch?v=sKpx3H9R28Q

problem fixed, it was the solenoid on the bottom of the carb float bowl, was not working, stuck or whatever. I took it out and ran wires from batt. to the 2 connectors on the solenoid and made it dance a dozen times or so. put back on and all is good...
