Sound like #8 is on the right track to help you start with the small easy thing first & go from that process of you know what. Those saftey switch can be the problem most of the time.

could be the starter is bad or the ignition relay is bad. you can try crossing the terminals at the relay with a screwdriver and see if it tries to turn the starter. or you can simply run your jumper cable hot lead straight to the starter terminal and see if the starter if turns.

dixon zero-turn quit working...

It sounded like it was close and trying hard the 1st time. So I turn the key again, same sound but a LOT less 'power' and the the thing on the top of the engine that spins looked like it was barely moving. Then the 3rd time NOTHING at all. No sound, movement - NOTHING.

How can it work and then 2 hours later not???

OK, how did we do with this problem? Was it the starter motor or the battery. Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks.
