That's pretty annoying. Usually the problems with small gas equip is the carburetor, plugged up passages and jets, that's a carb rebuild. Remove and check the plug color for run condition and ground it out to verify it is sparking. That's probably a magneto, so give it a good pull when you ground the plug. That's a two cycle so you might also have old or too oily a gas mix, toss the gas and mix fresh.

A lot small ignition spark appears to be weak when they are not.

A couple things to check. make sure your spark arrestor is clean and your ignition timing is correct; otherwords, that the flywheel key is not sheared.

Tb7oss trimmer won't start

to be honest, it would probably be less expensive and far less time consuming to replace the entire trimmer with a new/used timmer. If you are willing to invest the time, replace the magneto, the spark line and be certain the spark plug is clean and properly gapped.

I have a etq 1200 generator that runs but doesnt have ac. what could be the problem?

Check that the GFI receptical is not tripped
Check that there are no blown fuses or tripped breakers
Verify that the engine is running at full RPM
If there is still no output, then either the field needs to be flashed (look on line to find a video on how to do this - YouTube), or the generator will need further diagnostics.

A 'cranks but doesn't start" problem just needs to be narrowed down to compression,fuel,or ignition.The compression is pretty obvious-does it sound like the stater is getting a load when cranking?The next one is fuel-do you smell raw gas fumes coming out of the exhaust?The last one is spark-take the plug out and clamp it to the block,crank it,do you see a spark? If you have compression and spark,try a shot of starter fluid down the carb.(sometimes the float needle can get stuck,and just getting the engine to fire will shake it loose).If you don't have spark,then look for why(not sure if you have a magneto or ignition coil system).

Hello . If you have a weak spark it could be the ignition coil that needs adjustment or a bad ignition coil . To find the ignition coil simply follow the spark plug wire . To readjust the coil get a piece of paper , loose the bolts on the coil and put the paper between the coil and the flywheel (higher part of the flywheel or magneto) tight the bolts and remove the paper .
Check for spark . If still a weak spark just replace the ignition coil .
Hope this help.
