I recently got a Yard Machines walk behind mower model # 11A-41MB029. It would start after a few pulls but only run with the choke on. Once you push the choke lever back in, it dies. So, I completely tore down the carburetor and soaked it for about 30 minutes. I put it back together and it starts easily and runs fine with the choke partially on but sputters when the choke lever is pushed in. Since this model carb is not adjustable, I can't take the mixture screw out and clean the hole it goes into. I figure that the carb is permanently clogged. A new carburetor is about $35 but I want to get a second opinion before I go ahead and order it. The carburetor is the problem, right? I would just hate to get a new carb and find that the problem is not even the carb at all. Thanks in advance.
