Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

It sounds like you just need to clean the carburetor jets, it is not getting enough fuel to keep it running properly therefore you are having to keep the choke on and it is performing poorly. What engine does this machine have on it?

I think it is a Tecumseh
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it is a Tecumseh. You should be able to just remove the carburetor bowl. The bolt/nut that holds the bowl on serves as the main jets for the carburetor, make certain that all of the holes in the bowl bolt/nut are thoroughly cleaned. This should solve your running issue.
