The safety switch on a riding mower is typically located on the steering wheel or dashboard near the operator`s seat. This is a safety feature that requires the operator to be present in order for the mower to start.
You will find it in your switchboard (usually outside a house. In a unit, it might be in your hallway, kitchen, linen cupboard or in a shared area, such as a `common property` garage or power room). Safety switches look slightly different on each switchboard but always have a `T` or `Test` button.
The neutral safety switch is located in the linkage or inside the transmission case which allows the vehicle to shift gear.
The manual bypass control lever is generally located at the rear of the riding mower and the linkage is connected directly to the transmission. It will be necessary for the operator to dismount the riding mower to activate or deactivate the bypass valve control lever.
Cub Cadet lawn tractors are very popular and consistently earn high ratings from owners. If you`re looking for the best lawn tractor among them, we recommend the XT1 Enduro FAB series.
There may be old or bad fuel in the carburetor float bowl. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and make the engine hard to start. If the carburetor is clogged, try cleaning it with carburetor cleaner.
The seat safety switch looks like a four-pronged plug with a push button on top. Inside, the base of the button has two sets of contacts. One set completes a circuit between two of the blades and another completes the circuit between the second pair. One pair connects to the engine and the other is grounded.
Wear goggles, hearing protection, gloves and long pants. Always wear sturdy close-toed shoes while mowing the lawn. Do not drink alcohol or use other substances before or while using your lawn mower. Do not remove safety devices or guards on switches.

2160 cub cadet that wont start.hot spark to the plugs
You’ve solved for some of the equation. Spark. Fuel. Air…..all in the proper sequence. Now, what condition are the plugs ? I’d change them out if they have any wetness to them. Check your fuses as well. Another thing is the ‘safety switches’ – located in seat, on parking brake, etc. One of these could have come undone or gone bad/loose wire. I’m thinking the latter….
