Easy way to test plug is to remove it from cylinder head, then ground its hex base to side of engine..reattatch plug wire and pull starter cord...Do this is dim light...need to see a nice blue spark. So, do that...check the plug gap and plug condition (even if new)...if it's NOT firing...try another plug...if same...you will need to pull the engine covers off and check the "air gap" of the flywheel magnets to the pickup legs on the ignition coil module. You can gap it the thickness of a regular business card (.010"-.014"). The gap has to be present for the spark plug to produce a spark.

You still have a fuel filter, fuel lines and maybe a primer bulb to check too. Make sure you're getting fire to the plug and fuel.

String trimmer tb20cs doesnt seem to be getting spark


hi
that is your ignition wire
along the ignition wire (sometimes called the lead wire)
there is a diode this diode is braking down
and is not repairable
just replace the complete ignition wire
that should sort out your problem

I have no spark checked switch and replaced plug what else should I check


Check the coil. Pull the boot off of the plug. While holding the boot near a metal surface, darken the room and pull the starter rope. If you see a spark, the coil is good, if you don't, you just found your problem.

Carburetor needs cleaning and probably diaphragms. Be sure to completely disassemble and pay very close attention as to where each diaphragm and gasket goes also make sure you remove the needle valve and clean screen.

I need to know the gas to oil ratio on my 17" 25 cc craftsman weed eater.


4 oz of a generic 2-cycle oil to a gallon of fuel is the typical mix.

I hope this helps.

Typically 32:1 to 40:1 for all these models. Use 35:1 and modern 2 cycle oil and you will be fine. :)
