Follow the two wires and look for scuffs broken or worn insulation. Sometimes easy to find by turning off the garage lights and pulling the rope (arcs can be seen easier this way). The wires use common ground to kill the spark through the switch. These wires are known to wear through the insulation after years of use and they inadvertantly ground out the ignition coils. Repair the wires with heat-shrink tubing or electrical tape as needed. Or replace the wires entirely if they are in very poor condition.
Hope this is helpful,

Every time Stihl becomes aware of an on line source they force its removal.

Gasoline cut-off saws are a simple and extremely robust tool that will easily last for many years if treated with respect and maintained regularly .
During normal operation it is absolutely imperative that the correct fuel/oil mix is always used. An incorrect mixture leading to a lack of lubrication is by far the easiest way to ensure an untimely death for your cut-off saw.
Here's a list of regular cut-off saw maintenance tips that will keep your machine running and running:
