I have a Generac PowerPact™ 7.5kW Model 6998 generator that the choke butterfly has started sticking in the closed position. The generator is about 8 months old and worked fine until a week ago. I can take my finger and touch the butterfly and it pops right open. Is there an adjustment on the choke system? Any ideas how to fix this will be appreciated.

Usually, there is a range of adjustment on the mechanism itself, a slot that you can adjust the position of the solenoid. I had to replace one of these on a powerpact recently for the same thing. It could get stuck closed or open. Similar problems could occur with the Nexus and older 10kw units. I typically replace them. If I recall it would also happen on the Corepower, it's predecessor.

Do you by chance remember the part number of the solenoid?

Probably still under warranty, think those had two years.
