I own an older Green Machine trimmer and it will not run unless it is on 1/2 choke. It runs great in that position. Anyone have an idea why I can't take it off of choke. I have don nothing to it except always use fresh oil/gas mixture in it and replace the spark plug when needed and oh ya, clean the air filter every fall before putting it away for the fall. :thanku:

The very tiny passages in the carb get gummed up over time. Your carb needs a good cleaning. Try running some Sea Foam through the fuel system. If that does not help, you will need to pull the carb and clean it while it is apart.
A kit is about $4 to $6 bucks and well worth it.
