    When I try to start the Murray Select 30" riding mower, I only hear a click. I have used the battery charger to boost it and i heard it crank slightly but never start. What could be the problem?

    I had the same problem. What I did was lightly tap the side of the starter with a dead blow hammer. I saw the starter gear turn slightly then I turned the key and it started.

Your problem is the saftey switch located under the mower. Look for wires that go to a switch where the lever to engage the blades connects. The other saftey switch in under the seat. Try using a screwdriver to 'Push" the button on the switch when starting. Sometimes you can agjust the position of the switch.

With switch off try crossing out the solenoid. take an old screwdriver and place it on the two metal contacts jetting out from the solenoid usually by the battery or close to the ignition. if strarter engages when this is donr replace solenoid. if not replace starter. hope this helps.

Nix on safety switch. If it was a safety switch, you would not hear a click when you turned the key to start.. There would be no power going to the solenoid. However, if your engine has the fuel shutoff solenoid beneath the carb bowl, it will make a faint click when you just turn the key to the 'on' position. Probably as thabrain says, a bad solenoid.

I have a tandem pacer 2400 lawn mower, my gardener was cutting fairly wet grass, it tripped the power and now does not start, even left it for a few hours ? thank you Vanessa


have the lead to the mower tested and tagged
if there is any insulation problems in the lead , then the rcd breaker will trip from earth leakage problems

wet grass is very heavy to cut so the motor may have overheated
press the reset button if it has one or have the electrician doing the test and tag of the cord also check the motor

moisture and power do not mix so electric mowers are only suitable for dry cutting

My starter string broke on my troybilt lawn trimmer, how do i fix it


Disassembly of the covers and controls to that point will be needed. It takes a little bit of work, then you have to preload the spring tension on the recoil unit BEFORE you install new rope. A good little bit of labor involved....somewhat mechanically inlined?
