The only way to stop it after you got rid of the switch would be to choke the engine. Assuming that this is a recent model saw, it should have an ignition module that has the entire ignition function contained within the module. Remove the left side engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. The ignition switch is attached at the end of the module coil, not the metal poles. Just remove the wire connection which eliminates the switch function. Reassemble the case and check for spark--it should be blue and snappy with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". If ok, I would suggest repairing or replacing the switch. If still no spark, then likely the module itself has failed. Use a thin business card to set the pole gap over the flywheel magnets. Hope this helps!

Make sure you have the air gao on your magneto set correctly, check/test your plugs.
All the safety switches are working correctly? Have your bypassed them?

Look out under hood on drivers side for a power relay these are known to blow.If its blown it will not allow any power to the ignition system at all.It should be in a fuse panel under the hood.

Everthing kicks on just fine but burners will not fire or fire and turn off. Wired around the high level sensor and it worked fine. The weekend beofre it worked fine. Seems odd possibly the high level...

Hi, I will keep this short as you have solved this already. If you have bypassed a sensor, or any kind of safety switch to get heat, this is the faulty part. If it is working fine bypassed, you need to replace it as it is faulty. You are jumping across the contacts, so pick up a new one. Please don't leave it bypassed for long, just until you get a new one. Good luck to you, and good job!

I have a Craftsman Riding mower 17 HP, 42"cut. It runs for ~30 minutes then shuts off like it's out of gas, but it's not. Won't restart for ~30 min. Can anyone help

check for fire to the plug after it dies....if there is no fire then its possible that the coil is breaking down and needs to be replaced.

Will not start. Can jump accross the selinoid and

I assume that you are jumping the solenoid in order to bypass an ignition switch that is no longer operating?

If so, did you have the key turned to the run position?

You should not need to bypass any safety switches, just be sure that everything is in the normal starting position. (deck disengaged, in neutral, etc.)

Either way, it sounds like you have a bad ignition switch, or faulty wiring between the ignition switch and the solenoid.

Won't fire

It may also be the high temp switches under the 2" inlet/outlet header. The 150 degree high-limit switch sits horizontal and corrosion happens often there. But be careful removing as if the header is corroded and the switch is also, water will flow out , so be ready to bypass the heater. You will have to replace the header. Try to jumpe that switch out and I'll bet the heater fires up.
