I was just mowing and failed to see a hose buried in the grass... I ran it over and it twisted in the blades underneath and stopped the lawnmower.

I removed the hose from the blades and tried to re-start the mower and can't get it to start again! Any suggestions? I can't find my manual.

It smells like it is getting gas. I waited a half hour and charged the battery and it still won't start. Is there a safety stop I need to know about?

Thanks in advance for any info!
