Set the idle up a little. It is the brass screw on the driver side with a slot. You can turn it by hand, clockwise to raise the idle.

If that doesn't help, you probably need to adjust the valves.<-- This makes a world of difference, because we don't use the choke or gas trigger to start my wife's. We just turn it on and hit the starter button.

Take a look at the fuel metering rod (part #16187) you will notice it has a clip with a washer on each side. There are several positions that the clip can be posistioned on. Move the clip DOWN a notch and then re-assemble. This will allow more fuel at idle and should fix the problem of stalling at low speed and/or having to run on choke at idle.
