Lawnmower engine stops when out choke.


I have a lawnmower which stops running when he goes out of choke.
I checked everything, it's not a governor problem i think, the throttle does not close itself.
In choke it run good but when out of choke it stops.
It stops immediately, not even in too low rpm and then stops.
I tried without air filter no luck either.

Someone any idea whats wrong?

Sorry for my bad English

Most common cause is a plugged orifice in the carb due to gum & varnish build-up.
Internal cleaning with ordinary spray carb cleaner is usually all that's needed.
