Hello gbpack1950!

Any model #s? 2 stroke engine, or 4 stroke? Do you have spark when it won't run?

Do you have spark when it won't run? Even though it's a new plug, you still might not have spark.

I believe this is a trimmer made by Ryan (IDC, Ryobi, etc.) for Lawn-Boy and should have a kill switch with a wire running from the ignition coil to the switch. It doesn't sound as if the switch or the wire is to blame (based on your described trouble) but rather the coil itself. You didn't provide a serial # along with the model and since there are several model years for this particular model, you can go to https://lookup2.toro.com/partdex/ind...Caller=lawnboy type in your model and then narrow down the look-up to your serial and find the part number for the coil of your unit, call a local Lawn-Boy dealer and get a price for such. Good luck and let us know.
