24 C that is about 75 degrees Farenheit, right.

It was fine for four years. Did it catch on fire as you were driving it or in storage? Electrical fire? Exhaust system fire?

Did your supervisor allow you 15 minutes paid time to clean it every day?

Take it to three mower shops and get three estimates. Someone can fix it.
