That is easy enough to tell if it is the oil alert malfunctioning by disconnecting the wire that goes to the oil alert and making sure the wire is not grounded and check for spark.

Homelite hgn 0960a generator wont start no spark


Change Spark Plug. Check The starting Switch with a Multitester if it have continuity.Start it again and check Spark with the spak plug unplugged and with the crankcase check the spark.
Check the oil level. almost all the new and modern generators have included an oil alert gadget that cut off for saving the engine.check oil level and refill if it need.start it again.

I have fire and gas but will not start oil alert light on when crank


By fire I assume you mean spark at the plug. When turning the engine over with the key and the oil alert light comes on the spark is interrupted by grounding the system thus the engine cannot start.
First, look at the obvious things, check oil level if it is at the recommended level smell the dipstick if it has a strong smell of gas
change the oil and try to start it again. Be sure the plug is not soaked with raw fuel before you try the restart. I the problem persists you can disconnect the wire from the top of the low oil sensor.Try to start the gen. if it starts change the low oil sensor.
I hope this all makes sense to you , good luck with it.

Have a honda 11 horse on a north star power washer that has no spark,yes the switch is on.


Cause of no spark can be determined by process of elimination. Good to have a new sparkplug on hand to eliminate plug as fault. So start by replacing plug with new or test plug on mower /edger etc. for spark. If plug ok, then temporarily remove the wire connected to oil alert system (oil alert will ground coil if oil low or dirty). With oil alert unpluged, and no spark suspect sparkplug boot or coil. The sparkplug boot threads on to the spartplug wire and is what actually fits-on to the spark plug. You can test the coil by removing the boot and inserting piece of paperclip wire, or small screw into end of the coil wire and hold close to engine ground while pulling rope. If still no spark suspect coil. If spark, replace the boot. Good luck with repair.

No spark on B&S industrial engine fitted ti Stephill generator


Always have a new spark plug handy to determine if faulty plug when no or weak spark. If your engine has an oil alert, disconnect sensor wire and re-test. If still no spark suspect spark plug boot or coil. New or used coils are available at small engine repair shop. If you have access to growler (used for testing armature), by placing coil on growler with one leg on each pad, you can test coil for signs of life. Good luck
