Clicking sound tells you the solinoid is working. There are several possible things causing it not to start. Check the following: Safety switches on the clutch, seat and deck lift handle. If any of these are not making contact, as in the button not pushing all the way in, the mower will not start.
If the safety switch on the deck lift is worn you might try pulling this handle futher back while trying to start the mower. This may work.
Check the key ignition to be sure the prongs on the back have not rusted. If they have and you know the switch is good try taking a small metal brush and clean the prongs.
A good small engine repair shop should be willing to check the ignition switch for you to see if it is good. P.S. If the solinoid was clicking to begin with before you replaced it then it was good and not the problem to start with.

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.

my specialty,but,you didnt post what the problem is,so,here goes,if it wont start,it is probably a bad safety switch,take the small black wire off of the coil,if it starts,then its a safety switch,if it doesnt then it is the coil,if it only clicks with a charged battery,it is the solenoid,turn on your key and short between the two big bolts on it if it starts it is bad,if you need a belt,i will need the numbers under the seat,otherwise i will try to find them for you,i will post a user manual for you here, Murray 425607x52A 42 34 Lawn Tractor Parts

Find a customer service number for Murry. Most likely they will
need model and Serial number. Probably will send you a replacement if your "nice about it".

Murray 10/30 riding mower has spark but not firing, with a puffing sound out the air filter when trying to start it.


Gavin, the symptoms indicate that the intake valve is stuck open, it could be that the exhaust is also stuck, but normally when an engine sets up, only one stem corrodes and gets stuck. It matters little though which one is stuck, you will still need to have a valve job.

My poulan pro riding mower clicks but wont turn over?


Check the battery voltage with a multimeter. It is possibly low. If so, you can try to charge it. At your own risk, you can attempt to "jump" the mower battery with a car battery. I don't advise this as a common practice. They both are 12 volts, the difference is in the amount of CCA available (Cold Cranking Amps).

Murray select riding mower model 309000x8NA won't start?


check ground wire and posts for continuity between battery and starter, if you don't have a multimeter, remove, clean and replace all ground connectins. If that isn't it and you are sure that your battery is good and you've got good juice to the starter than the starter needs op-checked, remove it from the engine and engage it, if gear shifts out and spins rapidly you may have engine problem. Hope this helps...

Murray 18hp 42 deck wont start


Hi.

The best advice here is to put your battery on charge, and, while it is charging, remove each connection, and clean the terminals back to "bright and shiney". The clicking noise is probably the solenoid trying to pull in to provide power to the starter. There also sounds like the comnnection to the starter needs to be removed and cleaned. If this connection is dirty or loose, it can arc and smoke without cranking. Also, if the terminals at your solenoid are corroded, the motor cannot recharge the battery on the run, and loss of power to the battery will result. Clean your connections, and try again!
This should correct your issues. In extreme conditions, it may be necessary to replace your wire from the solenoid to the starter, if it is significantly deteriorated, but I'd clean it all up first.
Best regards, --W/D--

You may have to change the magneto.
That's the return circuit which charges the battery.
