Question about Garden
Need to know where the switched side of the ignition switch is wired to. Not sure if the wire fell off or just missing something obvious. Chainsaw does not spark. Suspect faulty Magneto coil as well. However need to start somewhere!
That is just a ground wire. And like you said it just closes the circuit. And it doesn't matter what side either wire go to on the switch. I assume you bought a new spark plug. If not i recommend that

I found an IPL for your saw here:
Enter 394 as model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
I chose the 92-10. The coil and wire were manufactured as separate pieces. I found both at Jacks Small engines. It is interesting that the same ignition wire fits a Poulan at 1/2 the cost. About $86 for both pieces at Jacks. HTH

The easiest way to test is on the machine. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module coil. Check the pole gaps of the module by inserting a thin business card into the gaps after turning the flywheel magnets under the module. Loosen the module mounting screws to allow the module to contact the magnets, tighten the screws, and turn the flywheel slightly to release the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Use a fresh spark plug gapped at 0.020" and try for spark. If nothing, replace the module. This gets around measuring resistances while trying to evaluate the module. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: no spark on homelite 330
The switch grounds the coil and kills the spark. Make sure you dont have a rub through on the wire coming from the coil. Better yet disconnect the coil wire. If this works you will have spark but wont be able to shut it down. Verify good spark, then repair the wire.
Hope this helps, Matt

OK. The kill switch breaks the circuit to the plug. Since you replaced the kill switch, assuming it is good (did you test it with a multimeter?), the problem has to be in the wiring to the plug from the switch. If the plug gets power all the time, then the circuit is complete all the time.
I'd replace the wires from the switch to the plug.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
