Default Engine not shutting down

Intermittently the ignition switch will not shut down the engine and I have to disconnect the fss to kill it. Yesterday when this occurred I tried to push down on the linkage to see if it was sticky. I couldn’t move it at all and undoing the electrical connector shuts it right off. So I don’t think that it is sticking. I found on seaboard marine where they discuss a diode going bad that allows current to back feed keeping the solenoid engaged when the ignition is off. Does anyone happen to know if we have this diode and/or where it might be loacated? Thanks.

before looking for a diode i would do a simple check to see if there is still power to the solenoid when the key is off.
if you have power,then you look for a diode or?

I was assuming there is still power present when it occurs since unplugging it is the fix. I will check that though the next time it happens.
