My t-25 just went out on me. No spark. Checked wires/conectors all seem fine. Changed plug/cleaned the toggle switch w. electro cleaner. Still no action. On last use I noticed it had a hard time shutting off. Took a couple tries on the switch to shut down, now it won't start. Help please, as this ol hummer will rip if it only starts.

Thaanks,

Kevin

i would suggest replacing the switch, one of the contacts could have broken off

In front of the carb is an electrical connection covered in plastic
where 3 wires come together. One to the on/off switch, one to
the ignition module below the carb, and the other one to the
coil under the engine cover. Disconnect the one going to the
on/off switch and leave the other 2 connected and see what
happens. The wire to the switch could be broken and is now touching the metal of the trimmer thus grounding your coil.

A big mahalo (thanks) for the input. I will give these a shot and see what happens. Thanks again.

That particular trimmer has an igniter on it. I used to have lots of problems with those.
