tug.cap, If seat safety switch test OK, could have either fuel delivery or ignition spark issue. If the fuel flow valve is off, the tank is empty or the fuel line/filter is clogged, fuel shut off solenoid faulty if equipped, faulty pump if equipped, dirty/damaged carburetor, gasoline will fail reach inside cylinder and engine will not start. A bad spark plug or failed ignition system/parts points, condenser,coils on older mowers, or faulty electronic ignition on newer mowers can result in weak/no spark not allow fuel to ignite. Below is a video to show testing seat switch and some trouble shooting links that may help in diagnosing your riders problem. Good luck.
