Throttle plate block short circuit

I put a new throttle plate on my Snapper 281223bve RER. Throttle works fine, chokes, revs from sfast to slow, but wont stop at low throttle. I got some zip tie thing with the throttle plate that I didnít know what it was for. Iím thinking I hooked up the wires wrong. The cut off that wires sets in a square recess but moving the throttle no metal comes into contact with it. Anyone got a picture how this supposed to work?

Ok, canít edit post so it got out needing some corrections. This is Series 23 with 12.5 Intek. Iíve had to replace the throttle plate a couple times with no problem. The engine stop for this doesnít work. I either have wires reattached wrong, or the engine stop contact itself is in the wrong position For this replacement plate design. I need a pic or diagram. I am writing from work and the mower isnít in front of me now. Just trying to line up for Weekend and save time by not having to go look at a snapper on sales floor. Thanks for help.

Found this image on parts tree showing the wires in a slightly different location.

I have 2 wires going to the block, as shown in the parts tree schematic. Never disconnected those so they should be good. I can’t quite tell if the plate connector has 2 or more... it kinda looks like 1 but maybe 2. I have 3. The engine starts and runs. It appears to have a contact on the inner plate but nothing hits it. I can cut it off with the key, but the third wire bothers me. Don’t want to do any cross connects but they’re all black wires so probably no harm. Thanks for replying!

Here's a diagram I found at the same site. Along with the key switch do your safety switches work okay? If they all work okay I probably would not worry about it past that. Usually only push mowers use the throttle kill on slowest setting. All the riders I have dealt with over the years with a key switch the throttle alone would not shut them off.

Ok, that must be it. Explains why the contact was corroded...wasnít in use. Maybe the plate is used on push mowers too? Thanks!

That's what I'm wondering if the same design base plate is used on multiple applications and maybe carries a slightly different part number and has parts added to the plate when a throttle stop position is used?
