Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello my name is ***** ***** you still need help with this issue?
Oh well I can help you with that. Have you tried inspecting the coil pack yet?
Sometimes mice will chew into the high voltage wire inside where you cant see it. Then it will spark to ground
What engine is it? Hp?
Do you mean 6hp?
You gotta give me a model or hp so I can help you better
Oh ok. I pulled up a pic. I would take the top cover off, usually about 4 10mm bolts. Find the spark plug wire and follow it to the coil. Check the wire over for chew marks
Ok, disconnect the black wire coming off the coil and make sure it doesn't contact engine ground. Attempt to start again
Try to gap it like I said.
Sounds like your coil is faulty. Disconnecting the black wire illiminates the safety parts
