Tem my briggs portable generator has no spark it appears ignition coil has failed. Items checked. disconnected kill wire to coil, disconnected oil sensor wire no spark this will be the 2nd coil


Test the coil electrically
A digital multimeter is required for testing the resistance levels of the ignition coil. The terminals of the coil are going to be marked "negative" and "positive," and these are the two points where the resistance of primary winding can be measured. Step 1: Prepare the multimeter
To check a 12 volt coil, set the multimeter to at least a 200 Ohms setting. Attach both leads of the meter to the coil-terminals with black to the negative terminal and red to the positive one.
Step 2: Test the resistance
The normal, acceptable range for a standard 12-volt car is 1.5 to 1.7 Ohms. See if the reading is within this range.
Step 3: Test the secondary coil resistance
Set the meter to 20K Ohm setting, and attach the leads to the ignition coil's center terminal. The reading for secondary-coil resistance should be 11, because if it is lower

What could be wrong with my tecumsa electric starter


Did you take the starter off and put power to it?
Open Ended it? you mean you placed it up on the auger and took the bottom cover off? The drive gearing has nothing to do with the Starter. O would pull the starter and see if Mice didn't make a home in there

Right side turn signals stopped working one day on my 1982 xj650, put in new flasher in and new bulbs and no change, If I need to do a resistance test on a voltmeter what do I need to do?.An explaination...


Hi dazsculpt,
I would start by checking the fuse for the right turning light. I think it is common for left and right. Check if the left turning light is working. If it is, you can use this as a reference.
Using a multimeter on your Yamaha is the same as using it elsewhere. The only difference is the setting you would use.
Two types of multimeters available are analog and digital. If you do not have a multimeter, I would suggest you purchase a digital.
A digital multimeter gives readings in numbers and is cheaper, whereas an analogue multimeter has a needle, and you have to read the correct scale.
Your multimeter will have instructions. There is a knob on the meter you turn to select the scale - voltage, ohms, amps, and maybe some extras.
The multimeter will probably have several ohm readings to select. You can select the lowest range for a start. Higher ranges measure very low resistance, and can even measure the resistance through your body!
Make sure that there is no power when you use the resistance measurement. Disconnect the battery on the Yamaha. It does not matter which way the leads are to measure resistance, it does for D.C. voltage, like your bike.
Remove both bulbs from the bike - left and right sides. There are two things to measure. The center of the bulb holder, and the housing of the bulb holder. Connect one leads to the center of the bulb holder should, and the other end on the flasher unit wire for that bulb. It should show a zero reading. Take another reading with the first lead still on the center of the bulb holder, and connect the other lead to the housing of the bulb holder. It should not show a reading, as this should be open circuit. If you have a reading, you will probably have a short circuit. Compare left with the right side, and there should be a difference.
Hope this has helped sort out the bike and use a multimeter.

Troybuilt snowblow electric starter won't start or turn over. Nothing happens. What could be wrong


if it does nothing, check to be sure you have 120v power out of cord
push starter button do you hear a click/ if not micro swtch is bad
if you do than starter motor is bad

Van wont start. replaced starter 3 times. sounds like solenoid when you turn it over. solenoid on top of starter. any ideas.


Hi,
I would verify that you are getting correct voltage to starter. Use a digital multimer set to DC volts 20 setting. Measure battery voltage at battery. Then measure voltage from large wire (usually red) on starter to ground. (engine block or bolt attaching starter to engine) if there is more than a small voltage difference, check for corrosion at battery terminals and cables. If not corroded and making good contact, replace positive battery cable to starter. If voltage good at starter, (at least 11.5 Vdc), you could have a bad engine ground. Follow negative cable (black one) from battery to where it bolts onto engine. Remove bolt from engine and clean cable and engine mating surface well. (wire brush will do well) Then re-attatch cable. Then set your multimeter to OHMs 200 setting. Test the cable itself metal ends on cable) from battery to block. Should get a reding of zero ohms resistance. If substantial resistance, replace negative cable. Not the complete diagnostic, but will give you a good start at finding a problem. Mike

Car will not start in cold weather... back fires and putts... HELP!!


Check your ignition coils.Take a multimeter and remove the plug wires.Now the coils are all paired so you need to set your multimeter to read ohms.MEASURE THE RESISTANE ACROSS EACH SET OF COILS.They should all read within 1000 ohms of each other.If not replace the coil pack assembly.

Have a A200 Mixer, when turned on, you have to spin it by hand then it runs fine. Whats wrong


The answer is clearly in the starting circuit which doesn't have too many parts, but depends on the type of starting circuit your mixer uses (electronic or mechanical start switch). I'm assuming your mixer isn't very old, as the old units used brushed motors which did not have starting circuits.

The parts of the starting circuit are the motor start winding, the start capacitor and the start switch (probably electronic in your case which is a small silver box with four wire terminals on it). The capacitor should be tested with a multimeter after verifying it's not holding a charge (check with multimeter set to DC Volts, mixer unplugged, should read zero volts).
Start winding should be tested with the meter to measure ohms. Locate the wires leading to the motor (hopefully only three wires) and you should get a reading for all three combinations of measurements (wire 1-to-wire 2, 2-to-3, 1-to-3) if meter indicates open on any of these, motor stator is bad(this is pretty rare and quite expensive).
Electronic start switches are not very simple to test, but if the capacitor and motor test out OK with the meter, and all the wiring is intact (look closely for loose wires, burned wires, poorly crimped terminals, etc.) then it must be the start switch.

Half way throu my dishwashers cycle it fuses & turns everything in house off


this happens due to the high electric current requirement of the dishwasher and it is not receiving that required current so it try to start but due to lack of required power it shuts off the current in whole house.
get the electric curren line checked out in your house.

and to check the current in your dishwasher check out this instructions
You will most commonly measure two electrical parameters when you're troubleshooting your appliance: resistance (measured on units called "ohms") and voltage. Typically, both of these measurements are made on a single meter called a multi-meter, which you can set to measure either ohms or voltage.
This shows how to measure resistance. Resistance ( or continuity ) is measured in units called "ohms." You'll commonly want to know the resistance of things like bake elements and solenoid coils. For example, a good bake element typically has a resistance of about 30 ohms. If your oven's not baking and you measure the resistance of the bake element and the meter doesn't move, then you know you have a bad element. A simple ohm measurement can save a lot of money and a possible headache :)

Amp meter: Here's a clamp-on amp meter (or amp meter) being used to measure current flow through a wire. This is a common test for determining whether or not a gas oven igniter is good or bad--only way to really know is by measuring its current draw and comparing to rated draw. You'll also want to measure current/amp draw in cases where you have an electric motor that runs for a few minutes then shuts off on it's built in safety to see if the problem is with the motor drawing excessive current.
Volt meter: This picture shows how to measure voltage. A voltage measurement at the outlet should the first thing you do whenever you have an appliance that is completely inoperative...a simple power test is required if your electric dryer is running with no heat to make sure you have both powers at the dryer

thanks.

How do I test an 8-0hm speaker or horn with a digital multimeter? Help!


What? You can take a friggin multimeter, stick it across the terminals and if it does nott give you any resistance back you fryed the voice coil. If you get 0 ohms it means you fired the voice coil. If you get 4, 8, 16 ohms then your good to go.
