Check all wire connections,where they connect to the switch- to the motor-and to each other sounds like a bad ground

Not getting any fire

Hello, W/D here.
Locate the kill switch on the front of the engine. It is a "momentary" switch that will return to it's original position when released. Sometimes they stick. When they do, the engine is stuck in the "off" position. Try working the switch. It may be the problem.
Best regards, --W/D--

My Ryodi Weedeater Has No Fire To Plug Put A New One In

The plug receives its fire from the coil module which is mounted next to the Flywheel. It will have to be checked. If the unit has a kill switch, the wiring to it needs to be checked too. The important thing about the coil module is that the pickup legs on it need to be about .012" from the magnets that are inside the edges of the flywheel. There's always the possibility the coil has failed, but they don't very often. Check the air gap as stated at the flywheel and make sure there are no bare or chafed wires to the kill switch going to ground somewhere.

I am working on my Husqvarna 124 L line trimmer. It suddenly stopped running. I know a few things about fixing engines and because of the way that immediately stopped, I figured that it was an electrical...

Kinda backwards than normal operation I see string trimmers. It could a weird setup. Check the kill operation with an ohm meter. If it is a closed circuit in run and open in kill position you may electrical connection problem in the wiring.

But normally you ground the magneto to kill the spark. By leaving the wires off at coil you should spark and not when you ground it.

Post an comment back when you out what is going here as I haven't seen this before. This might explain some reports I seen about customers receiving electrical from some Husqvarna trimmers.
