Try this locate your coil / magneto and disconnect the kill "shut off wire " and try to start if it starts your switch may be bad or wire broken..if still no spark using a rubber handled pliers ...Pull your plug wire and place a screwdriver or similar metal piece and in the plug wire now bring the screw driver close to the engine block or Frame if spark it is your plug..if not your coil needs replaced...not a hard job just use a business card to set clearance on your coil..good luck

How to fix an off and on switch on a briggs and straton model series, 19e400 5000 watt, on and off switch located on top of the motor. is there a wire thats supposed to hook onto the switch somehow.

Kill switch should have a wire connected to the tab on the spark coil under fan cover. The switch is a means of shorting kill wire to ground. On some generators, there will be another method of shutting down the engine. Usually on/off switch will be more visable on the control panel. Most likely the switch on fan cover was not connected to prevent confusion.

No spark 10 hp briggs+straton model 19E412-010701, ON/Off Switch broke replaced that, but get no spark

Remove the kill wire from the the back of the ignition module and test to see if you then have spark. If you have spark you would have a bad ground but if you still do not have spark then you may have a bad ignition module.

Have a 9 horse troy built 33in walk behind mower,I want to replace the engine with a another briggs a 15 horse, but it has some extra wires to the carburater bowl and I wnat to make sure where they go and...

The wire to the carb bowl is a fuel shut-off solenoid. Needs battery voltage applied while the engine is starting/running. Your ignition switch will need a 'load' connection (battery voltage when 'ON' or 'START', off otherwise.

If your ignition switch is not suitable, you will have to rig something.

Wiring on an old 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine

The "heavy wire" connects to the spark plug. It should have a plug connector attached. There are 2 small wires. One of them grounds to the engine block (probably through one of the screws that holds the magneto in place). The other wire goes to the condensor/capacitor.
