Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. The reason the generator is running on half choke is the carburetor is partially blocked
Expert:  Briggs-Fan replied 1 year ago.
Can you give me the make and model of your generator? . In most cases the carburetor has to be removed and completely disassembled and cleaned with a carburetor cleaner like gumout. TheY usually have a center jet that unscrew with 8 to 12 pin holes in it , use a needle to clear them then spray it out with carburetor cleaner
