Engine Only Runs with Choke Applied

Why will my engine run only with the choke applied?

Usually, this is due to a fuel restriction. Ensure the fuel is fresh and clean, and that the entire fuel system (gas cap, gas tank, fuel line, carburetor, etc.) is free of debris.

For additional information regarding poor engine performance, please visit the Troubleshooting section of our website or download our Carburetion Troubleshooting Quick Reference Guide (PDF).


If you wish to perform this maintenance yourself, a good source for engine specifications and technical servicing information would be a Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual (Lookup Manual by Model Number PDF.) The correct Repair Manual for your model engine is often listed in your engine's Illustrated Parts List.



Repair Manuals are available for purchase through our website's Learning Resources section or locally from a Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealer.
