Lawnboy Coil Bake - how long does it last

Posted by hsur NY (My Page) on

I have a Lawnboy Silver Series Model 10227 4.75 HP with the Black/Gray coil (684048). Sat for a couple years tried to start it this year no spark. Did the ignition coil bake for 45 minutes at 225 F. Good spark. Replaced plug and is still working after 1 week and 2 hours run time. The question is how long will a baked coil last? Should I purchase a new coil as a backup?

Thanks

Lawnboy Silver Series Model 10227 calls for coil part #99-2916 (replaces 684049)

Lawn Boy 684048 does not fit your engine.


======================

I have found a way to bring 80% of the DuraForce ignition modules back to life that I have encountered. I will make a post about how it is done when I get the chance.

hippy

Is the upper picture (the gray color coil) you posted the correct coil for the 10227 Silver Series? That looks like the shape of the coil that came off of my 10227. The number stamped on the coil is 684048

I will try to post the picture of the coil that was mounted on tmy 10227.

Just finished week 2 and the "baked" coil is still working. So 2 weeks and about 4 hours run time so far.

Thanks

They vary widely. Mine lasted one running.

Update. Coil is still making spark after 5 weeks and about 10 hours run time. I enjoy baking - not really, but to save a coil I will bake.

Walt thanks for you data point.

I have found that 90% of the Lawnboy coil problems are where the plug wire attaches to the wire in the coil. Outlined in red.

I have many times used a small deremel cut off tool to carefully cut cut along each side of the plug wire to expose the connection. Solder the connection and use epoxy (not JB weld) to seal it back up. Many brought back to life and a lot of them are still working for people today.

You have nothing to lose by experimenting for the coil is worthless once it "goes dead". So why not see what makes it tick?
