SOURCE: homelite ut08107 will not fire. no spark at plug.

It may be the coil if there is not any spark. Or a wire could off at the coil. One more thing it could be is the spark plug wire may have came loose from the coil. These a few thing to check.

Ok. Good job on doing what you could, right off! The simplest things are the most overlooked, and the most unforgiving.

So, you know your plug is wet, so you got some fuel flow.

Now let's figure out the plug no-fire problem. (This is under the assumption you haven't beat on this blower with a sledge-hammer at one point. The whole "key-way" is fried thing.)

1. Grab ahold of that plug THEN crank away. One time will tell you yes or no on spark. No, I am not joking, and yes, it is better than staring at the end of a plug and wondering if your eyes are bad.
In fact, better than a cup of coffee......in a bad way.

2. Check your kill switch. It is either: Grounding, or Open (open like it should be, UNTIL you push it, click it, or slide it, whatever you got). One CHEAP and fast way: Unhook the kill switch.
Then crank away. No spark? Not the kill switch then!

3. Check your spark plug GROUND. Let's say you got some shocking results from grabbing onto that bad boy. NOW check where the plug meets the cylinder head when she is screwed down in there. Believe it or not.....if it is funky, she won't ground right!
Hence, no worky.

4. You got no spark at all.....STILL. Let's look over your Spark Plug WIRE. Is she wore through? Is SHE grounding out? Has she heat failed? Then do #5.

5. STILL no spark. Let's check the last 2 things......
Rotor Magnets, and Magneto (ignition coil).
IF you have a volt/multi-meter, hook her up to the plug wire. No juice = Bad Magneto, or Bad Plug Wire. SOME juice = Good Magneto, but Bad Plug Wire (in some mowers/weedeaters, etc., remember that the Magneto is where the kill switch hooks too.
See if it is somehow grounding you out, by being loose but still touching the cylinder, etc.)

6. Failing Magneto. This can happen, and it does. You get SOME juice, just not ENOUGH juice. 2-Strokes make a lot of heat, even Magneto's give up the ghost after a while, sometimes. In this case, find a replacement!

Alright, remember that 2-Stroke motors are meant to do 2 things:
Break down, then Frustrate you.

So, here we go: (Electrical)

Rotor Magnets, Magneto (ignition coil), Spark Plug Wire, Spark Plug, Spark Plug Ground (Cylinder Head).

In that order!

Check your "fire" from the Magneto:

1. Check your Kill Switch. In other words, leave everything normal, and unhook it. Did she start? Kill Switch it is! Kill Switch/Wire comes from the Magneto (single wire/ground) to the Switch itself. So check that wire AT the Magneto (Is it loose and grounding out? Is the Kill Switch grounding you out where it is, because of crud, junk, or because it is touching the block when it is not supposed to?)

2. Check your Spark Plug Wire. Easy, unook it from the plug, stick your finger in, give it a crank (non-MultiMeter way). Did you get shocked? Then it ain't your Plug Wire and Magneto!

With a Multi-/Volt Meter, simply hook her up, and check for juice WHEN you pull the rope. If you got juice, it ain't your Plug Wire or Magneto!

Checking Spark the "normal" way: Grab the Plug with a pair of insulated pliers, hold the plug end against the cylinder head, and pull your rope. Any Spark? What color?

3. STILL no fire. It leaves: Magneto and Plug Wire.
Luckily, they are both in the same place! Tear your blower down, and check to see if the Magneto has slipped out of place (gap is WAY out), or if the Plug Wire has worn to the point it is grounding you out. While you are there, check your Kill Switch wire, to see if she is grounding you out then and there.

4. STILL no fire. That means: Magneto Failing, or Magneto JUNK.
Buy another one, replace it! (Or steal one from another junk Blower/Weedeater. These things are fairly standard, and easy!)
Or, Bad Plug Wire. Meaning she has failed out on you.
Wait......that means: Replace your Magneto! Lucky the things are built together right?

SOURCE: Stubborn Gas Blower

hey buddy chk that the cylinder head is loose or the gasket is blown,, thats what i found on mine after buying a new blower,, returned it no problem tho ,, you will have to manufacture a tool to tighten one of the bolts and also use locktite on the bolts so they wont backout after running ,, be sure to clean the holes and the bolts before applying locktite,, hope this helps ,,

SOURCE: I have a Poulan BVM200VS gas blower. The plug

I have a craftman leaf blower that will not spark the plug, using a test light without the plug and just grounding the end to the housing.The light will blink real bright turning the flywheel. But when i connect the test light to the plug and ground it to the housing. The test light will not blink. All wires are disconnected from ignition module. Is my ignition module bad ?,and then why does the light blink when i ground test light. For test light to blink seems module should be good. I re-tried to set gap several times with same results ...set gap with a index card i have also use a aluminum can in the past.

MTD Snow Blower will NOT start up!


fuel float stuck --- need carburator repair -- to check it has spark then pull spark plug --- if wet blow off spark plug and check spark on plug then squirt a small fuel out of oil can into plug hole and put plug back in -- if engine fires on first pull carburator needs fixing -- check by squirting fuel in carburator with oil can and see if you can keep it running

If there is no compression can this be fixed


thinking is not a fact. pull plug wire off, pull starter rope. do you have pulses of resistance? Yes, =compression good enough. No, = expensive repairs(new head and/or piston)

Redmax ebz5100 blower stumbles/misfires periodically until engine is hot?


What happens if you play with the choke ? does it clear up or change, If it does then it's a fuel problem example : fuel filter, fuel line cracked,dirt in carb. If the choke does'nt make a difference then , try a new spark plug Good Luck, Let me know how you come out 2StrokeJim

I can't get the blower to start. I have replaced the spark plug and there is no fire from the plug. I have checked the fuel and fuel lines and filter. No fire, no start. I even replaced the kill switch.


I have read many problems with this unit but I have never heard anyone mention the
diaphram on the side of the carburator. I can't get my leafblower started and I could
see that no gas was getting to the cylinder. I'm about to go to a repair/parts store to
buy a new diaphram for the carburator that I expect will not cost more than $5.00.
It's located on the left side of the carburator secured by a small metal plate with 4
screws. I know enough now to avoid ever buying a troy bilt product ever again.

The blower will not start. I changed the spark plug but it still will not fire..


Maybe you have some problem with the carburator. You can put some gas in the carb if it start and then turn out your problem was the carb.

I have a 25cc Craftsman Blower/Vac model 358.794941 which will not start. I have replaced the spark plug and carburetor. This is 2 years old and not even 10 hours on it.


hi

if you have compression and spark(a blue one) try priming the engine,put some gas in the sparkplug hole and start the engine.if it fires only the gas you putted inside there is a delivery problem to find and fix(carburator and hoses.

Crafsman gas blower: fuel lines to primer bulb had to be reconnected; now blower won't fire at all. Replaced plug and made sure it sparked; still nothing when I try to start.


Hi

Priming the engine(put some gas in the sparkplug hole ,after you have checked the sparkplug,the colour of the spark has to be violet).Start the engine.If it starts there is a carburation problem,change the fuel lines to primer bulb.
