I have a John deere 316 with a onan and it will not run unless the choke is almost closed, I have checked the fuel flow and the compression and all seems good. What do you think is wrong?

If it runs in choke only then it's fuel starved it's either the fuel filter or the fuel pump

Hello sir, mower will not start or run,runs only when primming, does it have good spark,good compression,or only runs on full choke, are you getting fuel to the engine if not try this,your fuel pump or your carb. is clogged up here is what you can do for a simple repair for the carb,you can remove the air filter and assy, empty fuel tank and clean out tank and line,remove the bowl nut and bowl careful of the gaskets,now spray carb cleaner in the small port holes in the carb steam in the middle of the carb until clean,now spray the bowl nut holes until clean there are three,after cleaning put bowl on the same way you removed it with dip towards front of float,put bow, and fresh gas,you should be good to go,hope this helps.,thank you.~~

SOURCE: john deere 318 wiring diagram I replaced an bg 316

Purple wire goes to the solenoid on starter.If you installed starter with single wire post all you have to do is mount a solenoid to the frame just in front of starter,existing batt/starter cable goes to one solenoid post,purchase a short red cable and install on other solenoid post and run it to the starter,plug purple wire into new solenoid and the way you go.

HAVE YOU CHECKED THE TRANSMISSION/HYDRAULIC
OIL? THEY ARE THE SAME. ON SOME TRACTORS THIS
CAN BE CHECKED AT THE REAR OF THE TRACTOR JUST
BELOW THE SEAT. IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD HYDRAULIC
PUMP.

SOURCE: I cleaned my carb on

On most float-type carburetors, the float is usually perpendicular to the edge of the carburetor body when the needle is seated.Turn the carb upside down and adjust the float if necessary, to where the float is parallel to the carburetor bowl mounting surface. There are tangs at the front of the float where it hangs on the pin that can be bent up or down to accomplish this.

SOURCE: how hard is it to replace the starter on a john

Not hard at all, disconnect battery than remove battery cable from starter, should be just one nut.there's a smaller wire that should just unplug, than there there should just be two bolts holding the starter in place remove them and you should be able to slide the starter out.

SOURCE: John Deere G049K Snow Thrower Service Repair

An older snowthrower will make some noise, but it depends on what kind of noise you are hearing. A "growl" is not common and can indicate the gearbox is low of oil or the oil needs to be changed. The gearbox is mounted on the back of the snowthrower and there will be a dipstick on top. There should be oil on the dipstick, and it should be kind of thick. Proper gear lube is 80-90, and should be a gold color. Also check to make sure the auger bearings are not going bad. You can grab ahold of the auger while the machine is off and try to wiggle it. If it moves at all the bearings will have to be replaced. Start there and let me know if you need anything else, Daniel.

Sounds very much like a fuel issue, i.e., starving for fuel. Check the fuel filter and replace.

Engine runs on idle and full choke, but does not run at mid throttle settings


Does it use gravity or a pump? If gravity, check the fuel line for internal disintegration. Air filter is clean, right? If your float does not move freely, it can restrict fuel flow also. Need for choke indicates that fuel is not being supplied, so check that it can flow by loosening the float bowl and catching the fuel. If slow, remove the bowl, and check the unrestricted flow.
