I have a firing problem with my lawn mower. I have bought a new spark plug and ignition coil and have checked the magnetic needle but it still doesn't start

I have read your comment on the other answer,Lets start with proper air gap on the new module ,take a piece of printer paper and fold it to make four thickness , loosen the module place the four thickness folded paper in between the module and flywheel turn the flywheel to where the magnet pulls the two together, tighten the module bolts rotate the flywheel as you pull on the folded paper to remove the folded paper. As a test unplug the little wire from the spade on the module ( it will not shut off from the key with this wire unplugged) and see if you have spark or if it starts,
it probably will and this means that it is a safety switch on the mower that is grounding that little wire that you unplugged on the module. Let us know what you have at this point to continue.
PS: it won't hurt anything for it to run with the wire unplugged from the module other then it wont shut off from the key, pull spark plug wire.

Air gap setting for 4 stroke rover mower model no 30694

I cant seem to get your model number to work for me but under Rover push mowers it looks like they use Briggs and Stratton engines so if true Air Gap: 0.203/0.305 mm (0.008/0.012 in.)
The way I do it is fold a piece of printer paper one inch folds four thickness, wrap around flywheel, roll the flywheel around so the magnet is pulling the coil up tight to the flywheel,the four thickness of the printer paper is your air gap, then tighten the screws . Pull on the paper as you rotate the flywheel to remove it. Dont forget to check that the little wire is plugged in other wise it wont shut off. Replace the spark plug and spark plug boot/wire as well as the flywheel cover and it should start up.

When receiving a FAX or printing a receipt, it repeatedly jams. The paper is found inside the back cover baked into a folded fan shape.

This folded pattern indicates that the jam is being caused by a physical obstruction in the paper path section. I would suggest manually feeding a thick piece of cardstock paper and seeing if you can find the location of the jam, as it is most likely a piece of trapped paper or plastic tab that has come out of its original position.

Camera plate has lots on play in it. slides and rocks back and forth. very loose.

If it is a manufacturing flaw, contact the company. If the company is unreachable, or you have to pay for a new part and want to save money: try folding a piece of paper and putting it in the mounting tray the plate attaches to. The paper between the plate and the mounting surface will serve to fill the void that the plate is free to move around in. Fold the paper as many times as you have to until it is thick enough to fill the void. Experiment with the best place to put the paper to eliminate play. You may have to put more than one piece in the tray to achieve even results and avoid the camera being cocked when the plate is mounted.

I used to drop drags and other motions on my White early 2009 MB. The "origami" solution for me was the answer. Place folded thick paper folded say 3 times to the size of a nickel to quarter in the battery compartment on the round area opposite the trackpad. Replace the battery and you will find the pad much more sensitive. Almost too sensitive, adjust the thickness. The battery presses it up on the contact. -Ken
