How does a scooter electric choke work?
How does an automatic choke work? Inside the automatic choke there is a small wax capsule with a heater coil wrapped around it. When the engine is started a voltage is applied to the heater and the wax heats up. As the wax begins to heat it expands and pushes the plunger out slowly.
How does an automatic electric choke work?
Automatically – An automatic choke uses a metal spring to open and close the choke plate. The spring is wound in a housing and attached to the choke linkage on one end. As the engine warms up, it warms the metal spring. As the spring warms, it expands, rotates, and opens the choke plate.
How do you test an electric choke?
Check from red plug to ground to be sure you have power first. Your photo shows the choke in it’s cold or closed position. When you work the throttle the fast idle cam (other side of the carb) should rotate into the fast idle position. Turn the ignition on and wait a minute..now work the throttle again.
How do I know if my electric choke is bad?
It should slowly open up and be fully opened within a couple of minutes. If it is not opening, the choke is either broken or not adjusted correctly. If it opens too fast then the choke needs to be adjusted. If it opens too slow, again — adjust.
Should Choke be open or closed when starting?
When doing a cold start, the choke should be closed to limit the amount of air going in. Once the car has warmed up, if the choke does not open fully, the restriction in air may result in reduced power.
Where does the electric choke wire go?
For electric choke hookup, attach the bayonet end of the long electrical lead supplied to the positive terminal on the choke cap. The other end must be connected to an ignition activated 12-volt source. The distributor side of the ignition coil is NOT a 12- volt source. It is a 7-9-volt source after cranking.
How do you activate an automatic choke?
When Setting An Automatic Choke the vehicle must be cold (hasn’t run for 4-5 hours): Remove the air cleaner assembly and depress the throttle twice. The first throttle press is to set the choke plate, and the second is to give the motor a shot of fuel. The choke blade should be completely closed at this point.
How do you check auto choke on a scooter?
Testing your Auto Choke
- Remove choke assembly from the choke holder on the side of the carburetor.
- Measure the overall length of the choke from end-to-end, including the very tip of the needle.
- Now connect the choke’s electrical leads to a 12v power source.
- Wait 5-10 minutes and re-measure.
How do you start a scooter that won’t start?
If the scooter does turn over but still doesn’t start you have to check for a spark and make sure gas is getting to the engine. To check for a spark, remove the spark plug from the cylinder, hold the tip of the plug against the cylinder head and crank the engine.
Is there a choke on a scooter?
How do I use a choke on a scooter? The choke is a cold-starting aid. Before attempting to start the engine from cold turn the choke on. Once engine is started and as it warms up slowly turn it off.
How long should electric choke stay on?
At 5°-10°C (41°-50°F), the choke plate should be fully open in about ten minutes. Check for bent choke linkage and a defective thermostat cap. And ensure the fast idle cam (screw) is properly set.
Will an electric choke work without a battery?
Yes the choke still operates with a low or dead battery. As bluefront said after the bike is shut off the choke starts to return to the default position as it cools off. The stator applies voltage to the choke only when the machine is running. Has nothing to do with the battery.
