Vince. I have a Troybilt TB320BV leaf blower that died. No

Customer Question

Hi, Vince. I have a Troybilt TB320BV leaf blower that died. No spark. Ordered a new coil off eBay. Didn't help; figured it was bad, too. Finally got a new coil. Still no spark. Grounded it, and still nothing. New spark plug. Still no spark. I have the flywheel as close to the coil as I can get it without hitting it (used a business card to gap it.) Any ideas?
JA: What's the make and model of the blower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Troybilt TB320BV. About 10 years old.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Always have. Yes. Got it spread out on the workbench now.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No. I think I explained it pretty well.....

Have you tried removing the small kill wire from your coil, then checking for spark?

Expert:  Donald replied 2 months ago.

This will help you and me to determine if your on/off switch is at fault ...

Expert:  Donald replied 2 months ago.

With your kill wire disconnected, there is nothing to prevent your coil from producing a spark to your spark plug.
