Craftsman Blower

I have a Craftsman Hand Held Blower that won't start (no spark) I replaced the coil & flywheel and still no spark? Anybody have any ideas? Thanks for anything. Lyle

    Leave the coil's kill wire off and see if you have spark. Also make the coil's metal core is grounding to the cylinder. If fires after leaving the coil's kill wire off then there is a short in the kill circuit.
     
    Other if the coil's is grounded to cylinder and the kill wire is left off and you still don't have spark you have a bad coil. It isn't unheard of getting a defective replacement coil.

    Please no yellling...
     
    Did you try it with the kill wire disconnected? Also have tried a know good spark plug? They are known to go bad. I have seen them to have a spark outside the combustion chamber but would not spark under the compression load.
     
    Just wait until you have a plug that causes an engine to diesel.

    Yes I have disconnected the Kill Wire & changed the spark plug. I also tried the wire with my hand. No voltage No shock! Thanks Lyle

    Well if the coil is grounded to cylinder, new flywheel (magnets strong) and know good plug then it should work; unless, all three coils are bad. Kinda abnormal but not unheard of. Due the design of these blowers it is nearly impossible to install the coil backwards too.
     
    So I can't explain what you are seeing as I am not there with my hands on it.
