Before replacing the mag check it's output and also check ur battery cable connections-Make sure the ground is clean and tight to the block. If ur lights come on when the engine is running u might want to disconnect them.

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.

How do you check a ignition switch on a murray riding lawn mower to make sure it is operating properly?


You will need a multimeter... then you will need to check each wire port to see if voltage is registering . I would also disconnect the safety switch under the seat or.. plus put the emergency brake on as well... anything and all that will stop the engine from getting the signal to the coil to start up..

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

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.
