try cranking it with you foot on the brake and pressing it down fully, the parking brake set may not be completely closing the switch. other than that, may be the sol.

Sounds like the parking brake is not set OR the blade is engaged. Either will cause it to not start. Of course there is always the possibility of a dead battery or bad connection.
