Echo PE-2400 With Weak Spark
According to my spark tester, the unit (a power edger) is producing a weaker than normal spark. It tests OK outside the engine but does NOT appear to be firing inside. Of course this has resulted in a no start condition. Which would be the most likely culprit for the weak spark: 1. Weak magnets in the flywheel (there are 3 and the 2 outer ones are weak...one is very weak) 2. Failing or weak ignition coil module....or BOTH!
A good spark on an Echo SRM-210 lights up my tester like Sunshine, but testing this PE-2400, the result is about half as bright!
It is getting fuel. I have not yet done a leakdown test . This unit has low hours on it and had very little carbon in it anywhere. There is No engine or piston scoring either.
