Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. You can test to see if it's the coil by unhook the ground to the coil , it will have a blade clip that connects it . If it has no spark to the plug after that the coil is bad

OK the electronic ignition in the coil has went bad then . The coil will have to be replaced . What kind of mower is it ?
