Customer Question

My Duro max, 10 KW generator does not have spark, and I need some assistance in troubleshooting this problem. I believe the model is:192FD. Can you outline the steps for me---I do have a good electrical background, and am skilled with an ohm meter, and have done some small engine service. I'm familiar with how a magneto works, but not the breakerless variety. Look forward to your reply. Richard

Disconnect the small shut off wire from the coil.

Do you have spark with that wire disconnected?
