Husqvarna 124L

Hi all
I have a Husqvarna 124L trimmer, and it won't start, on inspection it has no spark, however if I hold the kill switch down and pull the starter there IS a spark, any thoughts. ( no, I don't know why I did that either)
Also what should the gap be between the rotor and the ignition module.
thanks for reading
Mick

Try unplugging the kill wire from the module and see if you have spark. The air gap should be about .010" or the thickness of a business card roughly.

Sorry it took so long to reply.....I disconnected the kill switch and there is no spark at all. (This is a newish machine ~18 months old, and has not been got at before this fault developed) Is there a way to test the ignition module? , doing some reading and the way seems to be to replace the unit with a known good one.
Thanks

Sounds like you have a bad coil (you just tested it).
