SOURCE: mower will not start, seems

Remember, if all of the safety interlocks aren't "made", the ignition circuit will never "close".
The symptom will be not even trying to turn over.

I need a wiring diagram, mainly from ignition switch to coil/stator.

pull the black ground wire off from the coil,try to start the motor,if it starts,put the wire back to shut it off,,,one or all of your safety switches is bad,you can bypass all the safety switches(as long as you dont care),by putting a switch connected to the coil and the other side,a ground,if you want safety switches then you have 3 to choose from to replace,2 stop the mower from starting and the 3rd stops it from running if it did start,here is a 42 inch,pretty much the same,you didnt tell me what model or make,

My Lawn mower is not starting even after changing and replacing a new spark plug?

First use a known good plug; new doesn't mean good all the time.

You need to check for spark by seeing if the plug or plug wire will arc to ground. When doing make sure insulate to yourself from it as there a 10-15 kv charge on that wire / plug if the coil is working and you will receive a nasty shock.

If no arc then check the ignition coil by removing the kill (stop) wire from the coil and try for again as above. If still no arc then the ignition coil is bad. If you now receive an arc after removing the kill (stop) wire then have either a bad kill (stop) switch or a short in the wiring.

If you replace the ignition coil the air is .010 -.012 normally on most small engines.

Why my 6.5 craftman eager-1 has no spark

Check the engine stop wire where it connects to the carb mounting plate. make sure it is not shorted to ground. Remove the top cover from the engine and check the flywheel to magneto air gap, it should be about .020 of an inch, this is about the thickness of a matchbook cover. Also check the spark plug wire and the connections, make sure they are clean and tight. The magneto is the y shaped piece behind the flywheel. Remove the flywheel holdown nut and washer and make sure the notch in the flywheel and in the crankshaft are across from each other. If they are not, you will need to remove the flywheel, and replace the aluminum key that goes there. The notches need to be aligned for the ignition timing to be correct. I hope this helps, good luck. Dan

If there is no spark and the wires are ok, face the fact that the ignition unit requires replacement, any amount of testing it is not goig to get you anywhere

It sounds like you have a bad Ignition Coil (Module). This is how they act when they start going bad. When they get warm, they quit. Some will last up to 20 minutes before they shut down. You can sometimes find a used one pretty cheap at a small engine shop.
