There is no test for a magnetron or coil, either it works or it doesnt. the smaller wire that plugs into the "coil" is a shut off circuit when connected from the coil to the engine usually through a shut off switch. IF YOU DISCONNECT THIS WIRE THERE WILL BE NO WAY TO STOP THE ENGINE!!!! before purchasing a coil, go to a autoparts store and buy a inline spark tester to prove the coil has failed.

My car just stalled and cut off. the engine light came on and would not start.i have replaced a cam angle sensor and a fuel pump . but it still wont start. what can be wrong?


Does it have Spark ,is there fuel pressure , does the engine have compression ? You have to test to find out what is missing ! Pull a plug wire or coil if it has coil on plug ignition system ,hold to ground (metal on the engine ) have someone crank the engine , does it spark ? If it has spark spray some carburetor cleaner into the open throttle plate , does it try to start ? If so there is a fuel delivery problem . If not do an engine compression test .

Wont start new battery new voltage regulator no spark to plugs


Bad coil, or one of the safety switches are shutting the coil down. To test this before replacing the coil. Disconnect the small wire to the coil that is mounted with an electrical clip. This is the wire that kills the coil by grounding it. Try to start it now but be aware that you just disabled your off switch. If it starts you will only be able to turn it of by choking the carb, grounding your spark plug wire or pulling the plug wire off. Good luck.

Engine keeps backfiring under load motor is an enduro xl 13.5 hp


Need Make/Model/Year/Engine Model/Deck Size, and hours on meter if you have one. A short description of the events preceding the beginning of the problem is also helpful.

Several possibilities:
1. Needs a valve adjustment or a valve job. Start with adjustment.
2. Needs new plugs. Start with new plugs.
3. Shear pin under flywheel is slightly damaged throwing off the timing. Remove flywheel examine shear pin for any damage. Just go ahead and replace it; if it even looks nicked or sliced.
4. Coil, or spark plug wire, is going bad. Very hard to test a coil for weakness without test equipment that the average person doesn't have. Check the first 3 problems, first. If it still backfires, then replace coil.
5. The other thing that causes backfire is fuel mixture too lean. On a small engine this is not usually an adjustment problem. It may be the fuel system/carburetor is dirty or partially clogged. It may also be an air leak in the gaskets of the intake manifold. If nothing else solves the backfire, remove the carburetor and clean or rebuild it. This is the least likely of the options so save it for last.

If compression is good and cylinder leakage is minimal, but a cylinder is misfiring or shows up weak in a power balance test, it indicates a fuel delivery or ignition problem (fouled spark plug or bad plug wire). A power balance, or cylinder balance, test should be run on a twin cylinder engine.

If an engine is hard starting, runs rough, misses or lacks power, run a cylinder balance test to determine if both cylinders are operating to their full potential. You will need an engine tachometer, a spark tester, and an insulated screwdriver.

1. Using the spark tester, with the plugs in, start engine and verify spark is equally good on both cylinders. Remove spark tester.
2. Connect engine tachometer.
3. Run engine at top no load speed. Note rpm.
4. Ground one cylinder spark plug with screwdriver. Note rpm.
5. Ground other cylinder with screwdriver. Note rpm.

The difference in RPM between the cylinders should be less than 75 rpm. If the difference between the two cylinders is greater than 75 rpm, the cylinder with the least rpm loss is the weakest and is a potential problem.

Note: If the spark plugs are new this could be an indication of a weak coil. Of course it could also be compression (rings), or valves.

Turns over but wont start


is this diesel or petrol.if diesel then look to your fuel pump.under it is a plug .remove this and drain what will be water on the bottom of it.only a small amount then refit.now pump the fuel up to it is very hard .then get someone to turn the engine over .as you keep pumping should then start.that is done due to air in the system. if petrol you need a spark plug tester.check the coil has a spark .then check the leads at the spark plugs are getting a spark .then check the plugs for a spark .smell them .do you smell fuel on them .if so change the plugs.

No spark on B&S industrial engine fitted ti Stephill generator


Always have a new spark plug handy to determine if faulty plug when no or weak spark. If your engine has an oil alert, disconnect sensor wire and re-test. If still no spark suspect spark plug boot or coil. New or used coils are available at small engine repair shop. If you have access to growler (used for testing armature), by placing coil on growler with one leg on each pad, you can test coil for signs of life. Good luck
