Hello, if the choke is sticking on, and you have a carburetor equipped model, then your "choke pull-off" (CPO) is not working probably. That would be the first thing to check. When the engine starts vacuum is applies to the CPO and it opens the flutter valve on top of the carb. But when the CPO is bad or if there is insufficient vacuum to the CPO, then the result will be what you are experiencing. So to recap, first make sure the vacuum is good and then verify that the CPO is not working by looking to see if the rod pulls back on the flutter valve.
If the CPO is fine, then your temperature spring coil may not be getting voltage allowing it to heat up. This coil has a red wire connected to it that goes down to your alternator. Check to see if the black cap on the end of the temperature spring is heating up or check for 12V of voltage on that red wire.
