    I am a Newb here as I Just found the site. I have an Echo PE-200 that was given to me by a coworker (looks like it was hardly used). Problem is it has no spark. I have tried new plug, removing the kill switch wire and still no spark.

    I am thinking the ignition coil is bad (is there any way to test?)? Any other suggestions? Thanks and great site.

    Just make sure that you disconnected both cut out wires.
    Preferebly from the coil.

    If the coil is bad, take it to a dealer. The Echo units have a lifetme ignition module warranty.

    The lifetime warranty is parts and labor for the first five years of ownership, after 5 years you get hammered with a minimum labor charge. And that is IF you have the original sales receipt.
