What engine does it have? Have you checked the points or changed the spark plug?

I'm not that familiar with the Tecumseh engines, let me see if we can get one of the others to help out.

These electronic ignitions sometimes just go dead. But there are troubleshooting methods. I'm no expert, so I'll refer you to some literature. Ed Stoller is a whiz on the Tecumseh ignitions.

Daniel has led you to the right place. I think there is a couple threads on how to convert them also.

Ed has many sites dedicated to his work, but I think this is one of the best.
http://home.earthlin...toller/id9.html
The navigation to the different topics is the header bar with the really tiny print.

Before you chase your tail tho, please take a picture of both sides of the engine from about a foot off the ground & post them up. This is not calisthenics, it's a good vantage to see what we need to see to ask good questions / help you out.
