coil on kawisaki fc150v

I'm not getting spark. Where is the magneto coil on the kawisaki fc150v ? Is it like the coil on a B & S motor ?
Is it the Kawasaki 21119-2139 Ignition Module (Trigger) M70114 ?

Should I be checking anything else ?
thanks mark

It's the little square "trigger" just to the right of the carb, about an inch square with one lead. Before you replace it make sure you don't have an interlock switch of somekind that is bad. The Kaw part is $62 but can be replaced by a Rotary and a Stens, the Stens part is 440-465 about $18 the Rotary is about $12. Have a good one. Geo

Unplug the kill wire to test for bad safety switches first. I don't recommend using aftermarket igniters as I have never had good luck with them. They sometimes last a month, sometimes a minute. Never had one last long.

Agreed, They are a waste of time and money.....


Mark,

A proper diagnosis will yield the faulty part then replace only the faulty part.

The coil and igniter can be tested as below with a multimeter to determine which is faulty, There were two different style igniters used so choose the one that looks like yours for the proper specs....









Good Luck

Gotta respectfully disagree with you all on this one. I have been using the Rotary modules for years and have literally used several dozens of them. I have never had a faulty one out of the box, and have not had one fail (yet anyways). They have been every bit reliable as the OEM units ( which of course means they should eventually fail)

fc150v on a deere 14sb mower, my control unit is 1 piece with 2 faston tabs like the image below. Is there also a coil ?



Where is the kill switch on the motor ? Which of 31YTech images are applicable ? The 2 tabs version doesn't look exactly like any of his images.


thanks for all the advice so far, I'll keep you informed

If you have an ignitior similar to the one pictured in your post, then someone has replaced it with an aftermarket type. They will work, you just have to ground the wire from the ( - ) side of the module to the engine block and hook the ( + ) side to the primary side of the coil. The coil is located underneath the blower housing mounted on the cylinder next to the flywheel. The OEM type ignitors ground through the casing with the mounting screw and only have the one tab for the wire from the coil to plug into.

30YearTech, the control unit shows 5.4 K ohms between the tabs in both polarities. Replace it ? The directions below show 2 different scales which is confusing.

What are the part numbers for the coil, both kawasaki & off brands ?

thanks mark

Thumbs up

Kawasaki P/N: 21171-2176 COIL-ASSY-IGNITION. I don't know if there is an aftermarket coil available, I have never had to replace the coil on this model engine and I don't see an aftermarket listing in any of my catalogs. The Kawasaki P/N you listed 21119-2139 for the igniter, is the correct part number. I have successfully used an aftermarket Rotary Part Number: 9334

I have never ordered from the company in the link, I used it only for the picture reference.

I don't see a kit available, usually you just have to get the parts you want to replace.
