Question about Electrical Supplies
I have a small gas generator that recently stopped working. I pulled the plug and discovered that there was no spark unless the plug was resting on the metal frame of the generator. Is there a grounding problem? I do not see any wires no connected. Please help.
Hi jeff best regards savumihai7
Inside of the rubber boot,at the plug wire terminal there is a spring making connection with the ignition coil(under the flyweel).Check the connection first.Try if there is a spark.If there is not,. remove the flyweel.You will see the coil and ignition wires.Check them by mearurement.Remove the spring and the cover and under it there are breaker points(they has not to be burned).The excentric on the crankshaft open the breaker points(gap) to have spark.Also clean the armature and the magnets from flyweel.Let me know.
