First thing that came to MY mind about your story is that you .....

A) Ran out of fuel while mowing

B) Still had the PTO engaged

C) Tried to start it with the PTO switch engaged. (which you cant do)

D) You activated the mercury rollover shutoff switch, and that may be faulty and sticking.

But then you go on to say that after a charge that it eventually DID start.

A once a week homeowner use mower will go through batteries a LOT quicker than a commercially used machine. Your probably due for a battery anyway, and you wouldn't be wasting money by getting one. Also check your battery terminals and clean them.

Let us know what you come up with.
