    The spark generator is positioned just under the button that is pressed to generate a spark to each hob. It is fitted with a metal arm that is depressed by the button. The generator is 'powered' by a 1.5v battery.
    The cannon hotplate is an early model, probably around 30 years old and is the stainless steel model.

What I can find is that this is no longer made.
You can try getting one of those manual flint sparkers.

No spark replaced coil no spark does the low oil have anything to do with no spark oil is up to full line


We use growler to test the coil off the engine. To make sure that other components are not the problem, remove any other wires connected to the coil. Always use a new spark plug for testing. Once you have solved the problem, remove the new plug and put it away for spare. If spark with other wires removed suspect faulty oil sending unit or short in wiring or faulty kill switch (test old coil also). Do not replace sending unit however, just check oil before every use. Good luck

I changed the magneto on my Honda GX160 QX2 5.5hp. small engine and I still have no spark. Any suggestions on what to check ?


There could be an issue with the oil sending unit, spark plug boot or faulty on/off switch. Easy tests. Always use a new plug for testing. Unplug the oil sending unit wire and retest for spark. If spark may need to change the oil or low oil. If still no spark, leave the sending unit wire unplugged and remove the boot from the plug wire. Insert a short piece of paper clip wire into the end of the plug wire and hold near metal of the engine for test. If spark, replace boot. If still no spark, unplug wire from on/off switch and retest. If still no spark suspect faulty coil ~ redo all tests using old coil. If still no joy return new coil for exchange. I use a growler to test coils(growler used for testing armature for short, place one leg of coil on each pad of growler and activate growler for short burst). Good luck.

5500 watt generator won't start. Runs as long as starting fluid is applied. Checked gas flow, wire connections, on switch,took carb apart and checked float valve


With starting fluid, it runs, so this means spark and compression and valves closing properly. You mention gas flow, so gasolene is getting to the carb. This would then leave the problem being in the carb if indeed fuel is present at the carb. If you take apart the carb right now, is there fuel in the bowel? Or, remove the bottom screw on the carb, does gas flow out? Does it flow continuously or does it quit? This will indicate if the float valve is indeed opening. The only thing if you have fuel in the bowel and no start, even with the choke closed, is that the main jet must be plugged. Had the unit been sitting for quite a while with gasolene in it? Gas can "varnish" after a few months and this can cause plugging of the jets and other passages. How old is the gas in the unit? Old gas won't burn in the engine and this can also be a problem. Drain the tank, and carb, put some new gas in the unit and try it. You might have to take the carb apart again and use some carb cleaner to blow the **** out of all the carb passages. This should get it going again. Now, most important, when you get it running again, you need to adjust the engine speed so that you do not burn out any electrical equipment. If you have access to a frequency meter, plug it into the 120 volt outlet on the generator and adjust the speed so that the frequency with no load is 62 - 63 hz. This will allow the generator to drop to 60 hz under load. The adjustment is a 5/16 nut, right side of the upper engine, facing you.

does this engine have a low oil shutdown unit on it

if so check the oil level an top it up it could be interupting ignition

be sure your tanks are full and connections are good and tight
brush soapy water around connections to see if any have a leak

if not oil level shutdown , then sounds like a fuel problem

suggest have a gas serviceman take a look

these units can be tricky to solve

I just bought a 1999 Winnebago with an Onan 6500 genset. It only has 45 hours on it. It will run for 15 - 20 minutes with the AC on and then quits. It will restart after a few minutes and go through the...


a 10 year old genset with only 45hrs on it...sound like the carb may need replace. working with these rv units for 6+ years has taught me that you cannot clean one well enough to fix it. you will need a new carb. your local onan dealer can help. when new the warrenty makes known that 1hr per month under load will keep the carb clean and problem free. evaporating gas leaves deposits and eventualy plug fuel jets. no replacement parts are recommended. i've personaly worked on rv's with 200+ hous and no issues at all. hope this helps, good luck...

Just won't start


check the spark plug after a failed attempt to start. If dry, then no fuel is entering engine.
Did you leave old fuel in carb? if so, your carb probably is dirty: old gasoline deposits varnish, gum, and you will need to dissassemble carb and clean it.
