You seem to have done everything, you need to make sure you have a 0.3mm gap between the coil and the flywheel magnets, you also need to give the starter a good pull when checking for a spark, if all this fails then the new unit is bad, is it a genuine Stihl part? if its a cheap Chinese copy then it will not be a good quality item.

You need power on both sides of the coil with key on engine off. With test light on neg side of coil you should get flashing light with engine cranking. No flashing indicates no trigger from ign module. No flashing can also mean the pick-up is faulty. To check pick-up dissconnect from module and use analoge meter set on ohms.Check meter movement during crank. If o/k check rotor for burn through.and change module.

Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Also check the wiring harness for loose and/or dirty connections. Look for bad plastic connecton blocks and abraided wires.

i had the same problem. there is a group of wires that go by the distributer and branch off to the distributer and go towards the front. when i would jiggle it the van would die. it ended up being a pinched wire.

Because there can be in 1 year of build an modification on the ignition group .
Marketing technical modifications for use of different sparkplugs are sometimes happens on some Stihl models , but you should know that there is an adjustable little gap between the flywheel and the coil. and also the right sparkplug all is ask again your stihlagent where you ordered your coil now.

I have the older model which has the 3 bolt ignition coil. If I replace the coil, does the new ignition coil have to be 3 bolt as well? the 3 bolt replacement coils are so much more expensive


Coils are usually engine specific, the number of bolts does not determine whether or not it will work. If you really want your chainsaw to work correctly - buy the right part. It's a cheaper than a new one! Using the model number you supplied, I found them for under $50, which is about the value of an old 050 Stihl -wow, that's a heavy old saw. If you are still (Stihl ;^ )) not sure, call a Stihl repair facility. There may be an old timer mechanic who knows.

Not getting spark when starting stihl ts 400cut off saw plug is wet.


fromsnor38@gmail.com HI GRYDERT your problem could be your on, off switch. This might sound funny, but switch the on off switch real fast several times, then see if you havee fire. If not check your spark plug. If you have a n
ew one try it. If that don't work check the connection at the plug to be sure it is makiong contact with the plug. If all this does't work you will have to go inside to the coil. They don't usually go ba d but it could. But first check to be sure it isn't grounded at the small wire from the switch. Good Luck.

TS 350 I have spark to the on/off switch, but no spark to the spark plug


The Short Circuit wires need to be looked at. Take off the cover over the flywheel. The two thin wires coming off of the coil need to be checked to see if there is a spot that has rubbed off and if there is a bare wire grounding out against the housing of the Cut Off Saw. May also check the coil wire going to the spark plug. This can also develop a spot that can ground out on the housing.

Running bad with oil leaking out the muffler crimps. Too much oil in the mix? Cleaned the air filters already and checked the spark plug. Looks good, maybe the carb?


Check the spark arrestor screen and see if the screen has carbon deposits on it. If it does then you need to clean the spark arrestor screen and re install it in the muffler. You can clean it by burning off the carbon. The air filters on the TS 700 Cut Off Saw do not need to be cleaned, they only need to be replaced when the unit starts running poorly. The carburetor could have something in it that is keeping the needle from closing and flooding out the unit. I would suggest taking this unit to a Stihl dealer that has a Gold Certified Technician. You can use the dealer locator on the the Stihl USA website. I have included a link HERE. You can type in your zip code and it will tell you where the closest dealer is and what level of technician they have.
