Briggs single cylinder engine. In the carburetor there is an electric solenoid, do you hear it click if you flip key on and off?

I don't here a click ,turns over goodNo
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Solenoid has to open as soon as key is turned on, or cylinder gets no fuel. It plugs the main jet, and has to retract with key on and has t have 12 volts to operate. Check it for voltage, if it has voltage and does not click (retract) solenoid may be problem.

Ok Thanks

If solenoid checks out, see if you have spark, by removing spark plug and grounding it to the engine , and crank and watch for spark at the tip of the spark plug. No spark on Briggs, remove the kill wire to coil, and check again. No spark with kill wire removed shows a bad coil.
