Ms200t not turning off

Recommended Posts



Have just been donated a 200t that I wanted to see if I could get working again. The main problem with it, as far as I can tell, is that it won’t switch off. I’ve checked the earth wire in the handle (seemed fine) and then checked the ignition coil wire. The piece of metal coming from the ignition coil that the wire slots into seems to have snapped off.


First question; is this the problem? Pretty sure it is but there’s certainly people who know more on here!


Second question; if so how hard are they to replace? The wire to the spark plug looks like a right bastard to get through as it runs right through the body of the saw! Not sure if it’s something I want to do.


Thirdly; is it a pricey fix? There are a few other things that need doing to it but seems to be running pretty well on the whole so would be nice to have a saw for cheap!

Just resolder the broken connector or a fabricated one on to the coil. Relatively simple job and yes, it would cause the non stopping issue issue.

If you want to fit another coil, the HT cable can unscrew from the coil and yes, removing the HT cable isn't a simple job.
