Remove spark plug and check for fire with a spark tester. (some inline models are also available and safer since the spark plug stays in place using those types)

If no spark:
Remove covers and unplug small kill-circuit wire(s) from ignition coil...Test for spark.
If you have spark the switch needs replacing.
If you have no spark the coil needs replacing.
Hope this helps.

Unless your engine is more that 25 years old (not possible for an Enduro), there are no points. The ignition is solid state, which means that a weak spark will require a new ignition module. Not the end of the world - they're cheap and easy to find.

Change the plug first!

Weed eater won't run


Sounds like you may just have a dirty carburetor.

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
