When it quits, do you have spark at the spark plug? How long before it will restart?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 7 months ago.
Did you see my response?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I was mistaken. It has a Kohler engine and no spark at the plug. 15-30 minutes before it will start again. How many safety switches are there on this unit?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 7 months ago.
Twin engine or single cylinder? Do you have spark when it quits? If no spark, more likley a bad coil/module if a single cylinder engine.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Would a bad coil work intermittently?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 7 months ago.
Yes,that is typical way coil fails.
