Question about Garden
I have a lawn boy lawn mower 4 cycle engine serial number is 260020568 and it run fine one day and went to use it again an it won't start, replaced spark plug and air filter just doesn't fire .
Also could be a bad ground. Quick way to check remove top cover and shroud. Remove 2 slip connectors (ground wires) going to coil. Put it all back and try to start. If it starts it's the ground. If it doesn't try replacing the coil as discussed above. If it does start, replace each ground one at a time if it does not start, you know that ground is bad. Retry, same procedure with other ground by itself. If it does not start then it also is bad. Trace the ground wires and rerun or test and splice. You can also run the mower with out the ground, but they serve as kill and safety switches so I do not recommend this.
If you have a bag sensor you can easily check it with a meter. Located on top right corner of my mower. Bag bar rests on it. Cut the 2 wires 1/2 way from the sensor, put a mutlimeter to measure the resistance when there is no bag it should read 0 ( the switch is closed). Place the bag on, retest, if it is working it should now read closed, this keeps the mower from runnning without a bag

One of two problems, ignition module has gone bad or carburetor needs rebuilding. I would replace the ignition module first. If you have the model, type and code of the B&S engine, you can go to www.precisionope.com and look at the IPL for the part number you need.
