Question about John Deere Garden
Sounds like one of two things can wrong...
1) the magneito may have built up a fine layer of rust up between it and the fly wheel magnets.
*solution to this is to take some fine sandpaper (wet/dry will work) and sand the magnets on the flywheel and then carefully sand the two contact post's on the magneito that face the flywheel when it turns. after this you'll have to re-gap the magneito. you can use a good crisp buisness card to do this.
loosen up the two bolts holding down the magneito (dont take them out) so that the magneito will slide to flywheel when magnet comes around...place the buisness card on magneito post's surface so that it creats a bearer between it and the flywheel (you'll have to use both hands to do this) then while holding the buisness card in place turn flywheel (by hand) (its easy and safer to remove spark plug to do this) untill magneito automatically slips towards the flywheel magnet (dont remove card yet). tighen the bolts so that the magneito stays in place while you remove the buisness card slowly so as that you dont disturb the placement of flywheel to magneito... once you tighten the bolts the rest of way you in buisness
2) the pionts might need to be re-gapped or even replaced.
* they are located under the flywheel of mortor. you'll have to take it off to get this far..
i would try the magnneiot solution first.
