Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
It sounds like you have a restriction in the carburetor jet. It is not getting enough fuel to keep it running when you turn the choke off. You will either need to remove and thoroughly clean the carburetor jets or you can add a fuel system cleaner to the fuel tank and run the machine with the choke on for a while and see if it helps. Sometimes a product like Seafoam or fuel system cleaner will clean any restriction but it does take a while for it to work so you may have to run the machine for and hour or more before you notice any difference. Obviously cleaning the jets is a quicker solution.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
