Choke not working

Hi. The choke on my Tuono has just stopped working. The choke lever still slides OK, but has no effect. Could it be a fuse/connection or something simple, or some surgery required

Hi there , my injected blackbirds choke has stopped working, after a cam chain rebuild, all gaskets were renewed, everything cleaned and repainted, initial start up was good and choke was activated,

Good morning Craig, I stand corrected on your model being fuel injected and having a manual choke on the throttle body so sorry, humble apologies, ok you need to observe the action of the lever that is connected to a shaft that appears to actuate 4 fuel enrichners that are connected to the throttle body and would move in and out at the same time when the choke lever is moved at least that's what I have gleaned from the OEM parts fiche.

Start OK but if after warm up I push the choke to run, the engine stops, I used 4 time before and idled OK

Push choke to run???then not use on a all ready warm engine you mean you push the GAS lever ? remember a choke can work as a throttle for the engine. it can have a double function if your electric start contact is damaged you can use it to stop the running engine also.
How long you are owner of the machine , read the manual about it !
If before it worked good on this kind of proceedings as described ? then if you mean you push the gaslever to run Try it to do it again without the airfilter. I THINK YOU HAVE An AIR problem by carburator if its so clean the airfilter if its not to old. or replace
You can use for short time the choke in most cases minimize use of the choke short not more then 2 times max you pull.or electric start.
AND very important control in any case allways for THE RIGHT OIL level !!

If the engine is warm(hot) do not use the choke forget it it has no use. control your spark plug electrode i think you will find the cause.

How do I adjust a manual choke?

A manual choke utilizes a lever and cable assembly to open and close the choke plate. If your mower has the manual set up check the adjustment by pushing the lever to the stop in one direction. The choke plate should be either all the way open or all the way closed. If not check the cable hold down clamp, there is a retaining screw that holds a small clamp over the cable to hold the cable housing in place. Now if the choke is not adjusted properly then watch to see which way is not going full motion.Then loosen the retaining screw and slide the housing one way or the other to achieve either full open or full close and retighten the retaining screw. Now remove the spark plug and look at the electrode end and see what color the porcelain is, if it is black then it needs to be replaced or cleaned. If it is white then there is not enough fuel and the engine requires more choke to draw more fuel when the engine is cold, remember that after the engine starts and warms up to open the choke so it does not flood the engine - you will see black exhaust qnd the engine will not run smooth,

How can I free both the stuck choke pullout lever and the on/off switch on my Poulan Pro 18" chainsaw? I tried using the start handle pull to rotate the engine, which turns normally, but switches are still...

This is a carburetor linkage problem and pulling engine though with the starter will not have any effect.

Check all the linkage at the carburetor for problems. Also try pulling the throttle trigger and may sure it operating the carburetor.

My suzuki gsx 250 choke lever is stuck off and i can't turn it on, i been using c.r.c to try get some motion but not sure if im spraying in the right place. any help would be much appreciated.

if its a cable choke, just replace the cable and you will be ok, If the choke slides on the carbs are really gummed up, you Will have too remove your carbs and clean them individually, You will need a factory manual for this procedure.

Thottle will no stay in one position. There is a black spacer that slides over the throttle shaft between the shaft an the leaver. Will a new leaver come with that black spacer. Blower model wt200

Three (3) possible carbs were available on your machine.
If you have:
Walbro model WT-606 carb, the choke and throttle levers are available in kit form (which leads me to believe the spacer comes with them). Throttle lever kit part #530071726 and choke lever kit part #530071725.

If you have:
ZAMA model C1Q-W11 carb, the choke AND throttle levers are BOTH a part of the carb itself. (Would need a whole carb to get your part.) Complete carb part #530071465.

If you have:
ZAMA model C1Q-W11C carb, the choke and throttle levers are available in kit form (which leads me to believe the spacer comes with them). Throttle lever kit part #530071715 and choke lever kit part #530071716.

Hope this helps.
