Your serial number IS in the range of mowers that MIGHT have an autochoke issue. Since your mower still has warranty remaining (3/10/2017) I'd get it up to a Honda dealer and have it inspected. If the autochoke is found to be defective, it would normally be replaced at no charge.Hi Robert,
Can you check it up for my Honda mower? Thanks in advance.

A few things to keep in mind:
Honda's warranty only covers defective parts, so if the problem is due to old, stale fuel clogging the carburetor, or a dirty, torn air filter, those are not defective parts, and such repairs would be out-of-pocket. Be sure you discuss with your service manager what is and what is not covered, and have the call you before authorizing any repair.
Just because your mower may have an autochoke issue does not absolutely mean it is the actual cause of the starting problem.
This is the most-busy time of the year for mower dealers...everybody wants their mower repaired but usually there is a wait involved due to the overwhelming demand for service. Many dealers will naturally put customers who bought mowers from there at the front of the line, and customers that bought elsewhere at the rear. That said, if they are a Honda dealer, they are fully authorized to perform warranty-related services to all Honda customers, including those purchased from other dealers (or Home Depot).
