Hey everyone,


New to the forum. I inherited a JD 826 this summer. It wasn't running so I ended up putting on a new carb, replacing the fuel lines, servicing the auger gearbox, and putting in a new spark plug.



It fired right up - and I ran it a few more times this fall just to make sure it was ready when the snow started to fly.


Well we received about 14" of snow last week, but I wasn't home - so my wife tried to start it. It's not easy to pull, but she gave it a **** of a try. Anyways, she flooded it - so I said I'd take care of it when I got home.


I can't get the damned thing to start now. It seems like it's not getting spark. Swapped plugs again and it won't fire. I left the plug connected and gave it a few pulls - couldn't see any spark on the plug. Once it flashed, but it was extremely weak.



A little digging turned up the possibility that the interlock control module is toast? I snapped a couple pictures of it.



Any ideas? It ran just fine when I put it away. I'm not great at troubleshooting spark issues. Thanks for the help!

Disregard. Haha. The trigger for the auger was malfunctioning. Temporarily taped it down and it started right up.
