Question about Briggs Garden
Engine numbers: 10H902, 0113, E1, 05091255.
This engine is on an older Craftsman powerwasher.
Replaced the magneto and everything was fine. Then after about a week it wouldn't shut off. The stop switch that was in it wouldn't shut it off and the new stop switch won't shut it off either. What am I missing?
While attending college, I worked at a tool rental center and learned many tips and tricks from the mechanics. The problem that we heard the most from customers was that the machine would not start. Your your machine at least starts and runs fine, however will not shut down with the factory kill switch. Many times when replacing the mag. (spark coil) the kill wire would rub against the flywheel and break or over time the conductor wire will break inside the insulation. If you kill switch only has one wire, then all the kill switch does is short the mag to ground. Simple test is to remove spark plug, re-connect wire to plug, touch plug to engine and pull rope to observe spark, then short the tab on the magnito to ground, should be no spark. If you still have spark, coil is defective however good enough to run engine. Kill with choke or pull wire. If no spark with test, make new wire from tab of coil to kill switch or any switch that will short tab to ground. Good Luck
