Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
Sounds like the coil is grounding itself out. remove the ground wire from the coil and try to start machine. If it starts, you will have to pull plug wire to kill the engine. Let me know what happens please.
yes, you have the plug wire and then a small wire, normally black or green. may be other color on this machine
you have a bad ground at the coil, and will need a new coil.
What is the coil gap set at on this engine?
I am assuming you have a new spark plug already
