    I picked up a Red Max G2KC for free. it won't start right now. It is not getting any fire. I changed plugs still nothing, took the coil off and cleaned contacts and still nothing. Would my next step be to replace the coil? What else could be causing this. Thanks guys

    Maybe it's the same thing,I'll run it by anyway.
    Does it have an igniter chip on it? Maybe there is just a bad connection. I have a Shindaiwa BP blower that does this. The clip that goes on the igniter chip sometimes wiggles loose and there is no way it will start. Push it back on so it's tight and it fires right up.
