Stihl FS 55 will not shut off

I have seen the wire work itself or break off the ignition module and I have replaced several of the actual kill switches. Check the wires from the switch to the ignition module first and if they are good go to your local STIHL dealer and ask for the switch. The switch part number is 4229 430 0203

Stihl fs 45 ignition problem no spark

Disconnect the small spade terminal wires from the coil itself and test for spark. If you do not have spark replace coil. If you do have spark check those small wires for insulation damage and grounding. If wires are OK check kill switch.
NOTE: DO NOT START MACHINE with small wires unplugged! Only test for spark.
