Grasshopper 124V ignition key switch not responding

Hello Folks,

I’ve had my Grasshopper 124V for several years now and apart from the occasional hiccup, I’ve been quite happy with the mower. A couple of days ago, the ignition key switch stopped responding – does anyone know any quick fix to this?


Hey Richard,

I’ve faced this issue with my 126V MidMount series – on further inspection, it turns out that the problem was the fuel solenoid. A couple of ground wires had broken and this probably shorted the fuse, it worked fine once I installed the new solenoid. I think this could be your problem.
