Try using a screwdriver to ‘Push” the button on the switch when starting. Sometimes you can agjust the position of the switch.

I have a Murray 6.0 hp 20 inch push lawn mower. How much oil do I put in when changing oil.
ANSWER : If there is a dip stick add some oil check the level till you get to the full mark. It should take a little more than a quart. If there is no dip stick then there is an oil fill plug down low on the engine. Fill slowly until the oil reaches the threads in the engine housing (almost overflowing). Be sure to replace the plug or you will have oil everywhere when you start it.

Don’t just dump the oil in, check the level as you go!
