The Honeywell s86f intermittent pilot control module relies heavily on a proper ground in order operate correctly, Check to make sure the ground wire connected to the right side of the module has a slid connection on both ends. This may require removing and replacing the wire. Also check the connections on both ends of the ignitor cable.

See if the spark will arc across the area where the pilot flame is. It should cross the flame. Adjust the spark if possible.

I hit a tree root and the mower will not start now, any suggestions?


The first thing you need to confirm is that the engine is still turning over properly. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord several times to make sure you have gone through all cycles. Everything feel and sound normal? If not, you could have bent a valve when the motor stopped so suddenly. Turn the mower over, with the spark plug still out and carefully rotate the blade by hand. Turn ok? If yes then the next step would be to ensure that you have spark. Hold the spark plug wire close to the engine block and pull the cord. If ignition system is working you should see a spark jump from the wire to the block. You can also buy testers that attach to the spark plug wire and glow if there is proper spark. If you do not have spark then the violent stop may have either broken a wire on damage the magneto. If you have spark then next step is to ensure that engine is getting fuel. Put a little fuel directly into the spark plug hole, put the plug back in and try to start it. If it starts for a second and then stops then fuel supply is the problem.

2003 kia Sedona won't. start


If this is a sudden occurrence and nothing suspicious happened prior, you most likely lost either gas or spark to the engine. You need to check for both.

Do you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn the ignition key to ON? Unless the fuel pump turns on and puts gas under high pressure at the fuel injectors, the engine cylinders won't get gas to start. Correct fuel pressure is crucial to know if you have a fuel pump (or fuel filter) problem. If the pressure is correct, it is probably not a fuel problem but a spark problem, although there are less common instances where a fuel injector circuit may malfunction.

The ignition system not producing spark at the spark plugs is the other common problem of no starts. Buy a cheap spark tester at a parts store, plug it into one of your spark plug wires, then crank the engine over and watch for a strong blue spark. You might need a helper to do this. If you see a consistent spark, the ignition system is probably good, although you should probably check more than just one plug wire-sometimes one bad ignition coil in a coil pack will cause no starting. Good luck.

I'm only getting spark out of one of the coil packs and the car turns over put won't start, please help me. Thank you


Try switching the ignition coil with the other coil and plug it in and check for spark again. If it works in the other coil location, then you need an ignition coil. Your engine is bad for valve cover gasket leaks which deteriorate the spark plug wires, so if you are going to put in plugs and wires with the new coil, I would recommend replacing the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals(included with the valve cover gasket set).

How do i install an ignitor


You remove the top half of the heater it should have 5/16 head screws set it aside. Locate the igniter which should look like a spark plug, remove the wire then unscrew the igniter. Now screw in the new one, plug the wire back on it, and put both halves back together and there you go. Take your time and pay attention to how things came apart you can pull this simple fix off. Have at it and soon I may be asking you how to repair these things.

Had a noise like a lifter pulled the plug wire off the front cilinder and the noise was gone


Now, the question is "what happens if you put the wire back on"? If you have put the wire back on and the engine is running correctly, the only thing I can think of is that the wire wasn't on good to begin with. What you were hearing was the spark popping under the spark plug cap. I used to set the initial timing on an engine using the pop of the spark plug. Simply turn the ignition switch on with the spark plug out of the head but lying on it. Rotate the engine and watch for the timing mark on the crankshaft. Notice the position of the timing mark when you heard the spark plug "snap".

If the spark plugs you use has the screw on ends where the plug wire connects, make sure you keep these tight.

Good Luck

Will turn over but won't start


Check for fuel and spark..
BE CAREFUL DOING THIS.....take a spark plug out and hook it back up to the wire, hold onto the rubber part of the plug wire ( you might feel a little jolt if you're hanging onto the plug itself). and push the starter button...if your ignition system is working you will see a spark!....***NOW VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!! KEEP THE SPARK PLUG AWAY FROM THE SPARK PLUG HOLE!!!>>>>>if both your fuel system and ignition system are working.....atomized gas will be pushed out your spark plug hole, and if your Plug wich is arking is near this>>>>>you will send your baby up in flames.....
this isn't complicated or dangerous, I'm just stating an obvious hazard....gas and spark = fire.......so put a rag over the plug hole or something.... and good luck

Hope it helps...Cafemoto

Laars lite 2 Spark egnighter will not spark


turn power off first. I would disconnect igniter wire which will be a thick orange wire that comes off of ignition module if it is spark. once you have that the end will look like a spark plug wire take shield away from metal then hold orange wire in hand close but not touching metal turn power on and it will take a couple of minutes before it should start sparking. If you don't see a spark then it is most likely the ignition module. There should be a red light on ignition module that will blink to tell you what the failure is if is is a newer on. When you turn power on to laars light 2 the inducer motor should come on then a pressure switch should send 24volt to gas valve for pilot to lite.Can you smell gas at all when laars should be igniting. If you have any questions fell free to email me back

When i turn on the heater it just blows smoke


according to desatech who makes reddy heat, the air compressor on the back of the fan should put out no more than 3.5 psi to the nozzle. you could also check the air path through the combustion chamber. sounds to me that the nozzle isn't atomizing the fuel but its coming out in a stream. the nozzle is supposed to make a conical pattern if the air pressure is correct.
