Problem with Honda mower auto choke

Hi Guys,

I purchased my Honda HRR series over a year back and the auto choke system has been malfunctioning since the last week – it’s becoming increasingly difficult to start the mower. Any suggestions?


Hello Ron,

The auto choke can run into issues if the carburetor is clogged, the spark plug is dirty or if the gasoline is old. After cleaning, ensure that the engine warms up for 3 full minutes to avoid automatic shutdown – this will activate the auto choke.
