Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
First, lets see if you are getting fire to the plug.
To check for spark, remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug.Remove the spark plug from the cylinder.Attach the spark plug wire to the spark plug.Using insulated tools so you do not get shocked, hold the base of the plug to the bare metal of the engine.Crank the engine and observe the plug for spark. There should be a bright blue spark jumping the gap of the spark plug.Is there spark present?.
First. make sure your oil level is good.
If it is, look at the side of your engine, near the oil fill.
There is a small device with either a yellow or black wire attached to it. Unplug that wire, and check for spark again.
If you have spark now, that switch is bad. It is an oil level switch.
If you still do not have spark, remove the green wire from the back of your on/off switch, and test for spark again. IF you now have spark, that switch is bad.
If you still do not have spark, your coil is bad.
