There are a couple things you can do to maybe make the mower run without choke being on, remove the carb, disassemble float bowl and use a bread tie to clean out the jets and tubes. while you are inside the carburetor float assy, check the nut that holds the float bowl and make sure that the small hole is open, to test this yiu can blow into the hollow of the nut and see if there is air escaping or not, this entails getting the taste of gasoline on yiur lips, but a small price to pay as oposed to a mower shop service charge. i remedied my problem with a bread tie to clean the jets(openings) some are large enough to use a small paper clip. once you are relatively sure yiu checked and cleaned all the tubes, jets, and holes, reassemble the carb and put it back on and give er a yank see what happens, you'll probably find this worked and fixed your problem,

Engine runs on half choke


You probably have some buildup in the carburetor, because tillers are gernerally used seasonally it leaves plenty of opportunities for buildup to occur . Also, you should inspect throttle cables and linkage to insure that everything intact.

I have a 15hp tecumseh engine that will only run with the choke on.


You have a partially gummed up carburator. Get a bottle of carburator cleaner to add to your fuel. Follow those directions and you should be fine.

The alternate method may be to get a can of starter fluid. Spray the fluid into the air intake as the engine is running with the choke on. When the engine sounds better take it off of the choke status. Joe
