Question about Garden

3 Answers

I have a Murray riding lawn mower that was made in 2004 (model # 425620X92A) that either clicks or turns over a little but won't start. I thought is was the ignition switch and replaced it, I had the starter checked and they said it is okay. It pulls 20 to 30 amps while it is trying to start and I have also replaced the battery. Can you help me by suggesting what the problem might be.

Does sound like the solenoid. If you are a brave sole, you can test this in the following manner.

Take a car jumper cable and jump the PLUS side of the battery to the starter PLUS terminal and, if the engine turns over, get a new solenoid.

I should caution you that it will throw a heck of a spark when you do this so be prepared. Connect the jumper cable to the PLUS side of the battery FIRST so you don't draw the spark over the battery. Also, if your engine has seized up, this will draw max current from your battery which is not a good thing so use your own judgement on this.

Do this at your own risk and, If you are not sure you want to try it, probably best to just get a new solenoid as you are probably going to need it someday anyway.

I had the same type of problem with my 36" Murray with an 11HP Briggs and Straton. I think I have solved it now. The positive lead from the battery had some corrosion on it so did not seem to be working reliably. I made up a solution of baking powder and and warm water and used an old toothbrush to clean it up. Also disconnected and reconnected most other electrical leads and it then started working.

I am looking for a parts and repair manual for a 2004 model #385016X78A Murray ride on mower.


Murray went out of business and was bought out by new outfit. Do not know if new Murray (kept the name) manufacturer will support the older products produced previously. You can always check and cross your fingers.

I need a deck belt for my Murray riding lawn mower model number is 13an772s058


If you still have the old belt, even if it is broken. Taje it to your local lawn and garden center that sells parts and service on riding mowers. Have them measure the belt length and width. If the belt is missing, have them look up belt for the model number of the mower you have.

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
