Strikemaster auger question

Question

bullheaded

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!

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
