Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Full model number? Have you removed spark plug and checked for spark? If it has spark, will it run if you put a teaspoon of fuel direct into carburetor or cylinder? What is engine make and model? White wire. where is it's location. near engine? Is there wire to the solenid in the carburetor?
With white wire showing to be magneto, the white wire would have to be grounded, to kill the spark. Check for spark, if no spark, locate the wire on the magneto, and unplug it and check for spark again.
Do you want to locate wire position, or get engine to run?
Sure load the picture.
by schematic white only runs from coil to relay. Wire may be off, so the coil is not grounded. I suspect you have a bad coil! No spark.
What I see is half of a fuse holder!
I see three fuses listed, none with white wire! light wire, alternator, and battery
You never know. On older mowers, It could have been an add on light or other accessory.
Does starter turn engine?
Same diagram I was looking at!
I will be here. But I doubt the wire has anything to do with your no start.
May, if engine and transmission work ok.
see question is still open, did you find problem?
