Did your Murray riding motor stop running? Did you hit something with your Murray tractor mower and now it won't run? Here is a (video) to help you troubleshoot your electrical components for your Murray riding lawn mower.
Today I am working on my own Murray tractor mower. I hit a stump a few months back. The motor stopped dead on it's tracks and the motor wouldn't start again on my Murray tractor mower.
Today I did some troubleshooting. Since I hit a stump and the lawn mower stopped running I figured I better check the blade.
The riding lawn mower blade appeared to have no damage. I took the spark plug wire off the spark plug for safety. Note: always remove spark plug wire when removing the blade.
I figured since I have someone here to hold the lawn mower to it's side. I should just go a head and sharpen the blade.
Next I checked my Murray tractor mower belt. Making sure my belt didn't slip off the pulleys. Lawn mower belt was just fine.
I checked my lawn mower battery after the battery charged all night. I figured it could be the battery considering I have had my Murray tractor mower for 8 years I bought my lawn mower used, So I can safely assume the lawn mower battery has never been replaced.
I have power in my lawn mower battery but no power to my ignition switch. Since I never had problems with my tractor mower switches.
I went on to youtube and found a great video on troubleshooting a ignition switch.
I viewed "Basic Electrical Troubleshooting for Lawn & Garden Tractors" I hope this video helps you with your Murray riding mower fix.
