I have a 17.5 Murray riding lawn mower engine runs well when I engage the blades it spits and sputters and starts backfiring what could be the problem


Sounds like bad fuel....runs fine when not under stress but poops out under pressure. Drain fuel and refill with new mix if it's a 50/50 gas-oil blend.

Model 40808X14A. When blades are engaged, why does mower die?


Most likely something is jamming a blade.
Another possibility is the reversing safety switch is stuck which cuts the engine spark.

I have an old Murray 38608b. It runs great until I engage the blades. Then it sputters and the engine dies. I want to fix this myself if I can. Help! Thanks!


Try turning blades by hand. Should turn. May need clean bottom. May be to much buildup. ALSO CHECK YOUR SPINDLES BEARING OUT.

I have a problem with the safety switches on my riding lawn mower


e841a1bd-a315-49bb-ae7c-9ba2aedccbb6.gifCheck this diagram. It is most likely the deck switch. as this is a safety switch i would recommend replacing it instead of bypassing it.

It sound like pto or safety switch may be shorted. Hope this helps.

Safety switch located


Micro switches will just stop the engine if the blades are engaged and the operator leaves the seat, or will stop the engine cranking if the blades are engaged, it will not stop the blades from engaging.

Hi, I have an older Murray ride on mower, small


Sounds like you have some sort of seize up problem in your deck assembly. Have someone help you with this check, start your engine, engage the blade or blades, and have someone watch the shoot from a distance to see if blade or blades turn. if not then your problem is in the area of top pulley and blade or blades. You may need to replace or loosen the pulley to blade shaft. Sometimes this part is repairable where you can replace bearings or bushings and sometimes the whole unit needs to be replaced. Look to see if there are grease fittings on this unit. Try oil anywhere it will flow down in between areas that may be seized and work on loosening up the pulley blade assembly.
If this doesn't help, go to some of your local mower repair shops, they may be able to sell you a used part. Remember to bring mower information with you so they can help you with the correct part.
I hope this has been helpful to you. GOOD LUCK.
