Problems Starting Gravely Mower?

I have a Gravely MiniZT 1534 mower. It's about 8 years old and has worked well until yesterday. I went to start it and it acted like the brake wasn't on (ie., nothing happened when I turned the key). The brake was on, so I pushed the brake lever off then pulled it on again and turned the key and it started fine. It worked for about an hour until all of a sudden the blades turned off while in motion. I stopped and turned off the mower to check for a snapped belt or broken pulley, but everything looked fine so I went to turn the mower back on and nothing happened. I tried the brake (off then back on), but no effect. As I listened closely, I could hear one of the two relays whistle-humming while the key was in any position except off. Normally, a noisy relay equals a bad relay, but I bought a new one today and the mower is doing the same thing. The mower had two relays, both the same, so I even swapped the new one into the other position to check, but no effect, just the one relay is humming when the key is in any position except off.

Check the wiring in the mower. A lot of time the wires will burn and go bad. You could have an exposed wire that is causing this problem.
