Check ignition kill shunt. It is a black/white wire the runs from the "M" pole of the back of the Start/Run switch to the ignition module (underneath engine cowling).

With switch in OFF position, the M pole should have continuity with ground (Bat -). With switch in ON position, it will have a high impedance (few k ohms) or open relative to ground. If switch and wiring check OK, likely ignition module has failed or damaged (mice).

I have a yard works trimmer and it does the same thing. To keep it running i have to put the choke at half way on. I took it back to the store where I bought it and they made some phone calls. The outcome is they said the controls are set up for the country where they make it. this country is very high and the atmospheric pressure is a lot different than ours. His advice to me was if I am happy with it working that way just keep it. So far it starts and runs good but it has to be choked all the time half way.

Else, fundamentals... fuel, comperssion, spark.

Reasonably sure its held by friction (plastic barbs of sort). They tend to hold after removing once or twice, but eventually it may take a light application of epoxy, else replace.

If extreme cold, it would help to warm with electric heat gun before removing.
