Customer Question

I have a CH25 engine on an Allmand backhoe/loader. It suddenly lost power and only runs on full choke with nearly no power. If I try to push in the choke it backfires, pushing the choke back until full choke and then barely runs.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! In the carburetor, is there an electric solenoid? It plugs the main jet in the carburetor, and has to have 12 volts to keep engine running with power. See if it is working. If not a carburetor problem, do a cylinder spark test, to be sure both cylinders are firing.
