Murray Riding Lawnmower Won't Start

I have a Murray 42 inch/14.5 hp tractor riding mower. I replaced the battery and spark plug, but still will not start.

Hi you have to check the safety switch and the stater solenoid. Sometimes is the safety switch is not sending the signal to start or the starter solenoid is bad. Let me know if that works.

Check the gear on the starter. I think it's stuck. I was having problems with mine.

Hello,

My neighbor has a Murray 12hp riding mower that he bought used. It ran fine when he brought it home but now all of a sudden it won't start. Nothing happens when you turn the key... dead silence. The wires seem to be connected properly and the battery has juice. Any ideas?

Did you check for a 20amp see if it popped try hooking a charger even if the battery shows good power try it see what happens from BigDog
