Testing the 2000W Inverter Ignition Coil

Updated 8 months ago by Juan Velez

This covers all Champion Power Equipment 2000 watt inverter models.

Read instructions carefully and completely before performing service.
  1. On the inverter ignition coil, a simple test can be conducted by connecting a 12V battery to the two leads coming out of the ignition coil. They are blue (positive) and green/yellow (ground and negative).
  2. Hook the battery to each appropriate lead and then make and break the negative connection to force a discharge spark from the end of the plug wire as you hold the wire near the engine case (1/4 inch air gap).
  3. If you see a spark during each make break cycle, then the coil is just fine, provided you see a nice and bright blue/white spark. A yellow or orange spark is weak and coil will need to be replaced. A weak spark will not ignite the compressed fuel.
  4. If the spark test passes, then you will most likely need to replace the ignition assembly. This is the module you can see on the front panel of the inverter with the three LED lights (green, red, and yellow).
