Heritage M10/30 mower has no response?

Hi, had my hayter heritage M10/30 in shed over winter. with just a small amount of encouragement, started up fine. However, after 1 circle around garden (10 mins), mower stopped and I have no response at all & engine won't turn over.

Anyone have any initial thoughts?

Hi, got a little help from a mechanic. After a short time of switches, battery and solenoid checks, he spotted that the fuse was missing! Bit of research told me it was a 15A car electrics type fuse; popped it in...fired up straightaway! I went to look for the old fuse where the mower had failed from earlier and its nowhere to be seen but as they are quite a tight fit, I fail to see how it came out.
Anyway, if anyone has a similar issue - Check the fuse!!!!

Thanks for the reply, can you suggest any immediate action or is it a send away for repair job?

Chances are then that the engine has seized - probably overheat - possibly lack of lubrication.

Likely a new mower required.

These are my initial thoughts...
