Welcome to the forums. Your post will be more likely to be noticed if it was moved to the small gas engine forum.

There is no recall. If you are not getting spark, first check that the on/off switch is not grounding out.

Yellow would indicate a weak spark. Usually a good spark has a bluish cast.

Have you tried installing a new plug?
