Welcome to GTT. What engine is it? I currently have a similar problem with my Simplicity 3310. I know it a mouse nest because I can smell it and its happened before. I can't run it until I pull it. Check our Manuals Section for 3 free downloads per day. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to GTTalk. Check our manuals section for Ariens info. and also for engine manuals. If it's a Kohler you should be able to get a manual here or at the Kohler web site. It could be something simpler than the module. Perhaps an interlock switch?

You should be able to get a service manual on the Kohler site for that magnum 20 That should give you the info. you need on that module.

The only way I was able to get to the I.M. was pull the engine. It's a pain but you need the room to reach the module, and set the clearance for the flywheel magnets that trigger the module. plus the engine shroud directs cooling air around the cylinders and what not.

This won't help you with no spark issue, but hearing hard to start when hot and last time run was during snow storm makes me want to ask if you have returned the air cleaner to the summer position rather than the preheat position.

Disconnect the engine wires from the tractor. Put an inline ignition tester to see if you get spark and then jumper the starter to turn the engine over. If you have light on the test they the problem is with the tractor. If you don't then the problem is most likely the IM.
