Strikemaster auger question

5 posts in this topic

I had my strikemaster mag. express lazer out yesterday and it was working great. This morning I tried starting if and would not go. I removed the plug and put the plug wire back on it /ground and no spark it all. I went and bought a new plug, gapped it at .030 put the plug wire on it and grounded it and still no spark. Any ideas? Thanks Bullheaded

On OFF switch? Maybe the switch is bad. How old is the auger.

I've caught myself a few times trying to start it when the switch was set to off... tongue.gif.

about the only thing that goes bad on those is the On/Off switch, and occasionally the wire on the coil breaks. If the switch went bad, you should try to find a replacement switch at a Tecumseh dealer. The reason I say that is the switch on your auger is different then a normal toggle switch. When it is in the "on" position the switch is "open". When it is in the "off" position it is "closed". Closed means it is completing the circuit and what it is doing is grounding out the coil. What may have happened to your auger, and I have seen it a lot, the switch sticks in the "off" or "closed" positioin and keeps the coil grounded out and thus no spark. You can use a normal toggle switch if you like, but remember that off is on and vise versa.

Could be a number of things, but I'd heartily recommend stopping by their service center in Big Lake, considering you're in Andover.

I was in the area with a broken recoil, and I walked out of there having quite possibly the best customer service situation I've ever experienced. They checked my blade pitch, sold me an extra collar bolt (then threw in another with a wrench for free); all extremely fast.

Stop by, they'll take care of you!

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
