To test your ignition control module with a multimeter, you place the red lead on the positive ignition coil terminal and ground the connection with the black lead. Your assistant then cranks up the engine and you check if the multimeter reads between 0.4 and 2 ohms.
To check for ignitor resistance, set the multimeter to resistance readings (ohms). Remove the igniter from the circuit, connect the meter probes to the ignitor, and check the reading. A correctly functioning ignitor will give a resistance value between 40 – 200 ohms.
Turn your multimeter dial to the lowest ohms setting, usually 20 or 200. Place the two probes on the atomizer your coil is in, one probe on the positive pin (the one in the middle of the 510 connection), and the other on the outside 510 threading, to get the total resistance of the coil in the atomizer.
The ohmic resistance of the coil is around 0.2–3.0 Ω on the primary side and around 5–20 kΩ on the secondary side. The winding ratio of primary to secondary winding is 1:100. The technical structure may vary depending on the ignition coil`s area of application.
To do this, set your multimeter to the ohms scale and connect one lead to the positive terminal of the coil and the other lead to the negative terminal of the coil. If the reading is infinity, then there is no continuity and the coil is defective. If the reading is zero, then there is continuity and the coil is good.
One of the first symptoms of a problem with the ignition module are engine performance issues. If the ignition module fails or has any problems it can lead to performance issues with the vehicle, such as misfires, hesitation, loss of power, and even reduced fuel economy.
If you suspect the coil is dead, you can also remove the coil, plug it back in, and use an ignition spark tester like OEM 25069 to determine if the coil is firing. You can also use a multimeter to test resistance.
To test a coil with a multimeter, you will need to connect the leads of the multimeter to the coil terminals. Once the connection is made, you can set the multimeter to the resistance mode and measure the resistance of the coil.
To do this, set your multimeter to the ohms scale and connect one lead to the positive terminal of the coil and the other lead to the negative terminal of the coil. If the reading is infinity, then there is no continuity and the coil is defective. If the reading is zero, then there is continuity and the coil is good.

I have stihl fs45 which have problem starting..has new sparkplug in it. Is the iginition coil could be a problem?
ANSWER : Yes it could be.You can purchase an inline ignition tester from your local parts store and test it. Its also possible the plug is fouled.

My chainsaw has no spark, I have checked the spark plug and it works on another unit, i guess it may be the ignition, ho0wever as it is a small coil I have no way of checking. can the coil be simply tested, otherwise can one be purcahsed.
ANSWER : Yes the coil can be tested. you would need to know the proper specs but with a multimeter you should be able to get a resistance value from your plug wire to ground. With my experience 10000 – 30000 ohms should allow it to run. If this is no help one common thing is your kill switch. A wire should run from the coil to the switch, if this wire is shorted to ground it will not run.

ANSWER : Check you fuel line configuration. More than one time they’ve come in with the fuel lines exactly backwards.

ANSWER : If it makes a blue spark, it’s probably good. More orange, probably too weak.

ANSWER : Look up the manual on the stihl site
it tells you this detail

Stihl HS 80 stops after a while
ANSWER : Check the fuel tank vent, it could be creating a vaccum in the fuel tank which is stopping the carb from drawing up the fuel. Then you’re having to wait till the pressure in the fuel tank equalises again.

Test ignition coil honda gx25
ANSWER : Okay. You have eliminated the plug. Now disconnect the coil kill wire and try for spark again. Also check grounding between the coil laminates and the cylinder with you ohm meter should read zero.

If grounding okay and with the kill wire disconnected you still get no sparks then replace the coil pack as it probably a failed internal trigger which can not tested for.

No spark what are the ohms specs on this coil this saw would run then quit then after about a week would not run has points that look good this is a 029 stihl chan saw not a husky your product would not accept stihl
ANSWER : Answered in clarification.
