    the safety switches will kill the engine, not disengage the mower deck. Likely your switch is bad or a wire came off, look along the wires going from the button to the clutch, looking for loose or cracked wires. Could be the electric blade engage clutch as well, eliminate the cheap stuff first. Hmmm..didn't even know they were making a walkbehind with button engage, but this is how the riders work, so it should be the same.
