    Murray Riding Mower
    My 1988 Murray mower worked fine last week... but I jumped on it this week and couldn't get it to turn over. Replaced the battery, but that didn't seem to help. Tonight I replaced the solenoid tonight, but that didn't seem to help. I'm getting nothing when I try to turn it over. Any advice?

    This Murray has had a lot of TLC over the years, and I hate to give up on it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you examined any/all safety cut off switches, you can find out where they are located either by manual, internet or through a Murray dealership.

    Or perhaps just the fuse?

    It might be a dumb question. But, is the blade/deck lever all the way in the off position?
