How to Check Solenoid for Murray Riding Lawn Mower
(Only works with a Briggs & Stratton motor)
A typical solenoid consists of two large terminals. One terminal wire connects to the battery and the other wire to the starter motor. Then your smaller terminal that connects to the 'start' terminal on the ignition switch.
This smaller terminal is connected to an internal coil which may be grounded through the solenoids mounting bolts. After power is applied to the small terminal, the coil draws the plunger too operate the switch that connects the battery to the starter.
Fuel solenoid test: Un-clip and remove the wire harness and remove solenoid from carburetor float bowl. Use a charged 9 volt battery, and touch two leads from the battery terminal to the solenoid terminals (polarity doesn't matter). You should hear a clicking noise as it engages, on some lawn mowers you can actually see the solenoid plunger retract under power. If nothing happens, replace solenoid.
Murray Riding Mower is not Firing
1) It maybe the armature or your key switch. There should be a wire you can un-plug that will isolate the engine from the frame to begin to troubleshoot.
2) Some times the starter wire gets loose after use. Open the hood on your riding mower. Look for the black cylinder about 3 inches around and about 9 inches high next to the motor. This will have a gear sprocket on top that turns the motor when power from the ignition reaches it. Check to see the looseness of the wires bolted to the starter and tighten them down. This worked for me after trouble shooting.
3) Make sure didn’t blow any of the fuses.
