Thank you for your question.

To test the ignition switch for your tractor you will need a volt ohm meter. With the meter, you can check continuity of the switch. The easiest way I have found to check a switch is to remove it from the tractor. With it out you can see the terminals better. I have provided you with an image below of the wiring diagram of the tractor. In the lower left corner you will see the backside of the ignition switch and a chart, showing the terminals connected on each key position. For example when the key is in the run position, you should have continuity between B and L. If you do not get a reading, the switch is defective. You have to use the chart and check all positions.

Please let me know if you need further assistance with checking the switch.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
