If you have tried a new spark plug and you still have no spark, then your Ignition Coil, (Module) has gone bad. They aren't cheap if you buy it new. Try to find a used one if you can for around $10.

Good Luck!

Old M70-130067 Sno Thro my Dad says it just conked out cant pull the pullstart at all and the electric start doesnt even make a sound ...... oil looks fine ..... suggestions ?

assuming you have already tried to remove all external drive belts from blower (to remove all load from engine) try removing the spark plug from engine , and try pulling engine over with pull start (it cant start) if it still fails to move at all or is real hard to pull look farther for an internal engine fault , if it does move then you have an "Hydraulic" problem most times is caused by motors oil inside cylinder , most times caused by head gasket failure or turning engine on it's side will do it too

Backpack blower will not shut off when knob is pushed to "stop". Have to disconnect spark plug boot to shut off blower.

Your off switch may be wet or disconnected. You can try spraying it with a little bit of contact cleaner or WD to clear the moisture. If this doesnt work you can pull a cover and trace back the wire and see if it just fell off or melted. Good luck and be safe!

My blower stops working after a few minutes and then shuts off

When it shuts off pull the plug wire and using a spark tester see if yo still have spark. If you have no spark you probably need a new coil. If you stil have spark put the plug wire back on and spray a little ether *(product usually called "instant start") and see if it starts momentarily. If it does your carb is in need of a cleaning. Most have tiny screens that plug up over time. Replacing this screen is recommended. Cleaning almost never works!

The unit uses a magneto system. To test the module remove the black wire from the module then reassemble unit and test for spark ( spinning by hand will not work, you need to use the starter rope to get the needed RPM to create a spark). If you have no spark with the ground wire disconnected the module is bad and needs to be replaced. If you DO have spark with the ground wire disconnected then you have a pinched wire going to ground or a bad stop switch

How do i fix the pullstart, including attaching to inner coil

You can remove the cover and you will then be able to view the pulley and crank as well. You can pry up tabs on pullstart, rewind and replace.

H1001d stopped working

You might have the blower wired incorrectly or a bad blower. Also make sure the hose is connected to the blower and pressure switch.

Leaf blower

One suggestion, unscrew the spark plug and reconnect the high voltage wire. In a very dark area move the plug so that the plug thread touches some metal on the engine. Pull the starter cord. If you don't see a spark, remove the two screws on the handle and see if two wires are attached to the Stop Engine Switch. Remove one wire and bend it away from metal and try to see spark when pulling the start cord. If spark occurs, the Switch is shorted and needs replacing.
