Cranks,and runs, but when throttle no power only if close choke almost completely

Anytime you have to close the choke to run your getting to much air or not enough fuel. May need fuel filter change or it's sucking air at carburetor gasket.

My generator Jetman gg7200e idles uneven it accelerates and decelerates all the time unless i keep the choke nearly closed

That kind of surging usually happens when you are running out of gas. Is the fuel tank full and is it getting enough fuel to the carb when it needs it?

Will not stay running after choke closed

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting ***** set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture ***** set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.

I need to set up the dellorto carb on the 35s suffolk punch

Running only with full choke is a fuel problem. Unhook fuel line from carb. it should run good. If not go back the line. Check the fuel cap vent.

Powermate generator 3250 runs for hours then chokes out runs rough

If it runs for hours under the same a mount of load then, chokes down, make sure fuel lines are fully clear, it may operate with a full tank of gas then when the weight of the fuel in the tank gets less has a problem. When it chokes out fill the gas back up and see if it works again. Also make sure the choke butterfly is not closing again whilst hot. I don't know how many hours are on it, but a decarb may be in order, especially if it runs for hours no issues

I have a tb25cs weed eater. I have cleaned the carb and replaced fuel lines. It cranks up easy, and runs fine while the choke is on. As soon as I pull the trigger and the choke dis-engages, it cuts off. If...

Sounds like 2 things-either your not letting the engine warm up to near operating temps before fully disenguaging the choke or the run jet (in the carb) is gummed -up.Old gas has the same effect. A teaspoon of Berrymans Chemtool added to afull tank of gas will clear out the gummy **** in the carb. When I start my 10 year old weedeater I pay attention to how cold it is to start with. When it's below 65 degrees I have to run it at 1/2 choke for a couple of minutes provided-that the air/fuel adjustment screw is at the optimal adjustment(per owners manual instructions).

My MTD Yard Machine Y2500 starts fine and works with the choke partly closed. It also idles fine with the choke fully closed but stalls when I press on the throttle when the choke is fully closed.

when the choke is fully closed your choking the fuel out,, thats why when you give i t gas it dies , its not supposed to run with the choke on and getting fuel , use the choke only until the motor warms up to operating temp,, then open it,, and you should be fine,

I have a 4 year old offshore 4 wheeler 110cc it has always run perfect. Recently it has developed a prob that it did not want to run unless the choke was on full closed position. I thought the carb maybe a...

So, when you remove the float bowl, is there actualy enough fuel in it, and the fuel flows freely from the fuel tap, into the carburettor, main jet is clear from obstructions, also primary air jet, no air leak between carb and cylinder head, does the choke flap have a spring mounted upper section if so is it still in place, by this i mean does the flap completely close the apeture when on, on this type of flap eventually the spring breaks off and gets traped in the inlet valve not allowing it to fully close, if it is the choke type is solid construction, then this would not be an issue, it would however be good advice to check the compresion, to rule out a problem with valve leakage which on a small engine would be detrimental, when you say force feed the fuel, do you mean you put the fuel down the inlet?

I have a old b&s 16h.p.twin tractor i have to run it with the choke pulled out,why AND how do i fix it?

If it runs with choke pulled out it's not getting enough fuel. Either the carburetor is dirty, or you have to open the hi speed screw. Another possibility is a bad fuel float or needle valve in the carb. If doesn't drop fully it won't let enough fuel into the bowl. Buy a carburetor kit and rebuild it and clean it. Find the model number on the B&S engine to get proper kit.
