Check the inline fuse first. If good, disconnect the small wire plugged into the bottom of the solenoid and hook a test light to it. Lock the clutch/brake pedal down and turn the key to start. If it lights up, replace the solenoid.

Why murray riding mower wont crank when being jumped off


Some mowers have safety switches that unless you are sitting on the seat and the clutch pushed in they will not start. Not sure if this is the answer.

I have a 14.5 hp murray riding mower i tightend the valves and now mower wont start


Steven, I think you have diagnosed your own problem. Check the specs you used to set the valve clearance. If you don't have any specs, set them both to .020" and it should run fine. Be sure that you set both valves just about 15-30 degrees before TDC on the compression cycle. (both valves closed)

Riding mower won't start from key switch


Do you have power to the switch? This is the only thing that jumps out at me, as you already did the right things.
Check that. I bet it'll get you going!
