My craftsman gas blower model 358.797170 has no spark. What can cause it ?

I've put a new sparkplug in and replaced the ignition module and still no spark. What else
is there that can cause this problem?

I have the same blower. Mine does not have the kill wire as noted above. I have a new plug and new ignition module installed and still have no spark. Air gap is correct, the flywheel is cleaned and the magnet is working fine. Any further suggestions?

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having problems with the blower. I have looked up the model number you have submitted. If you still do not have spark from the plug after replacing the plug and the module I recommend checking the air gap. The air gap is the apace between the module and the magnet on the flywheel. The gap between the two should be .012. Once you have set the air gap, check the engine for spark. If you still do not have spark remove the kill wire from the module if your model has one (some models do not have a kill wire to the module) and check for spark again. If you have sparked the kill wire is shorted to ground. If you still do not have spark check magnet on the flywheel. It should hold something metal if held close to it. Once the magnet has been checked, the problem is either a defective spark plug or module.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
