Clean the fly wheel and then check the points. The gap between the megneto coil and fly wheel is minimal. Also check the spark plug lead is clean also. Then get a new spark plug and it should work.

SOURCE: Craftsman 21'' Lawn mower won't start

In order for there to be a spark at the plug, make sure the plug is grounded to the engine, it will not "fire" if it isn't.

Remove the cover with the crankrope, there should be a thin black wire going to the coil, going to a ground lug that kills the engine. Try unplugging this wire and re-check the fire...if it fires, there is a fault in this wire and should be replaced. The mower will run without it, but will not stop without "choking" out the engine

SOURCE: My Mower won't start.

the problem is that your carbeurator is gummed from from sitting idle all winter with gas in it. Get an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner, remove the air filter and give the air intake two squirts of carb. cleaner. Then start the mower. When it stalls again let it sit for an hour while the carbeurator cleaner works at dissolving some of that gum. Repeat the process until the mower runs again. Sometimes there is so much junk in the carb. that you have to remove it and soak it in cleaner for about three hours, and then rebuild the carb. with the proper little kit. hopefully you won't have to take this step.

Next fall let the mower run out of gas and stall then you won't have the gum in the carbeurator in the spring.

SOURCE: My riding lawn mower won't start. New battery

Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

I installed a new magneto on my toro 6.5 gts lawn mower and still only get a weak and intermittent spark how do I correct this problem?


bob, i believe the magneto only charges the battery, if you have weak or intermittent or no spark i would look at the spark plug or the coil as the coil is what causes the spark. if plug is weak, the coil is bad or even the wire on the bottom of the coil. it is a ground. unhook that and see if it has spark. if it does the coil is your problem. good luck

Why Spark on Briggs and straiten motor?


Does it have a shutoff wire on the carburetor?

Use a meter to check the coil at the magneto - if that coil reads "open" (no continuity), then it's bad & needs replacement.

The engine stops after a half hour of mowing and will not start until it cools down, after which the cycle repeats itself


engine getting hot. Take rope pull off and clean off all the air fins on the cylinder block, use air how and do a good cleaning. If flywheel still have all the cooling fins it should help the problem or even solve it. Keep mower airways clean.

875 Series Engine-cleaned flywheel and magnets and magneto. Put back together and now no spark to spark plug. What is the air gap between the magneto and flywheel.


You should put it at .020

Are you sure you had spark before you took it apart? If you are not sure, then the Ignition Coil may have went bad. How did it act before you decided to take it apart?

How can I check if the coil on my lawn mower is defective? It appears to be a simple magneto operation.


Remove the spark plug.Reconnect it to the wire.Lay the plug so it can be touching the metal part of the engine.Try to start the mower just as you would to get it going. Of course it wont start but look at the spark plug to check and see that it has a strong,consistant spark. Thats how I would check the coil.
I hope this helps you.
