Finding a Switched Connector or Foot Pedal for a New Home Machine - switched connector

Finding a Switched Connector or Foot Pedal for a New Home Machine?I just bought this New Home Combi 502dx machine. The last picture is the electric connector I need for the machine with the switch on it. The one I have has no switch and machine is running on training mode. Can anyone advise where I would find this switch or a foot pedal with a speed control switch I could convert on to the electric socket that goes in the machine. Or does anyone have one?

Huskee Riding Mower Only Starts When Jumped?We bought a used Huskee riding mower last year. When we went to look at it, it started fine. We turned it off loaded, it on the trailer, and came home. When we went to get it off the trailer it wouldn't start. So since last year we have been jumping it off with the car every time we want to cut grass. When we jump it with the car it starts and runs fine, no problems while cutting the grass.

I woke up and fed him and then put him and his brothers in their room as I left the house. When I got back a couple hours later he was laying there sideways dead and already starting to get hard. He had drool on his mouth and the area where his mouth was and he had also pee.
