Question about John Deere Garden
My mower keeps stalling and will only keep running if the choke is pulled out. I also have to pull the choke every time in order to start it. It has a 25h. Kawasaki engine.

Well this could be a couple of things first thing first is check the air filter and make sure its clean you can blow it with air or pore gas over it and clean it make sure you let it dry before reinserting
second im assuming this is the first time you have used it this year if so the gas you have in it hasnt been sitting in it all year has it like anything else gas gets old
third alot of times you can let it run for a while with the choke out then slowly pushing it in
fourth you could have water in the gas remove the tank and empty it remove the spark plug turn the engine 4 or 5 times only bumping it dont hold it down this will blow some of the water out then dry the spark plug off and replace it
if this doesnt help it could possibly be carburetor problems

You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.

carb dirty, jets partially plugged, float sticking. Not so uncommon problem and is caused by the fuel left in the carb over the winter gumming up (going bad). You can attempt to clean this on your own if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. Search small engine repair and it will give you a generic breakdown of the parts in a small engine carb. If not the, to have someone overhaul a small engine carb will run you about $120 including parts (at least around VA).

Loosen fuel cap 1 turn to see if it will stay running.Theres a tank breather hole/vent in the cap and when it becomes plugged no air can get into fuel tank when fuel is used,can also be a plugged fuel filter.
