Murray 17.5 HP mower - no noise when turning key? Maybe ignition?

Mower ran great two weeks ago. I went to start it yesterday, and didn't hear any type of noise when I turned key. Battery shows fully charged. Any suggestions?

    The fuse is good. Only safety switch I know is the dead man switch under the seat. I cross jumped that and still get nothing nut the click and the ampmeter goes down a little.

Look near the starter solenoid for a fuse. It is probably under the hood near the steering column. If fuse is good, problem is likely a safety switch.

Mower ran fine a couple days ago. Went to start


Remove the plug, pull the rope several times. Wait about 30 minutes. Put the plug back in. Try again.

Choke off? Use sparingly if at all. If you have a primer button, only press it 5 or 6 times.

Is your plug in good contition? It may need a replacement. Make sure you get the correct plug.

Let me know how this works out.

Murray lawnmower


you may just need to remove the nut that holds the float bowl, and inspect the nut itself, half way up the nut should be a little tiny hole in the side.
use a bread tie stripped of the plastic covering and unclog this little hole, then replace the nut , when that hole becomes plugged the main jet cannot get fuel for the venturi pipe, thus the mower will start and hit a couple times then die immediately, that may fix the problem

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.
