Testing Your Jog Scooter's Electric Choke: A Step-by-Step Guide

If your Jog scooter is experiencing starting issues, it may be the fault of your electric choke. The electric choke, also known as the auto choke or the enricher, can become faulty over time and impact the performance of your scooter. In order to test your electric choke, follow these simple steps to ensure your Jog scooter continues to run smoothly.

Step 1: Gather Necessary Tools
Before beginning, gather a multimeter, screwdriver, and a pair of pliers. It's important to have these tools readily available, as they will be used throughout the testing process.

Step 2: Locate the Electric Choke
Start by locating the electric choke on your Jog scooter. It is typically found near the carburetor, with a few wires connected to it. Make sure the scooter is turned off before continuing.

Step 3: Disconnect the Choke
Use your pliers to disconnect the choke's electrical connector. This is important, as it will ensure you measure the correct resistance and avoid damaging the choke.

Step 4: Measure Resistance
With the choke disconnected, set your multimeter to the 20k Ohm or similar setting. Connect the multimeter's probes to the wires of the electric choke. The multimeter should display a resistance value. If it reads no resistance, or the value is significantly out of the recommended range (refer to your scooter's user manual), the electric choke may need to be replaced.

Step 5: Check for Continuity
Set the multimeter to check for continuity (the setting with a sound wave symbol). Touch the probes to the choke's body (ground) and one of its wires. If the multimeter beeps, it implies a short circuit, and the choke will need to be replaced.

Step 6: Test Choke Operation
Reconnect the choke and start your scooter. Allow it to run for a few minutes so the engine warms up. Once warmed up, turn off the engine, and carefully touch the outside of the choke. If it feels hot to the touch, the electric choke is operating correctly as it heats up to open the choke.

If after the testing process you conclude that your electric choke is faulty, it's best to replace it to ensure the best performance from your Jog scooter. This simple test will help you identify any potential choke issues, guaranteeing a smooth and efficient ride for years to come.
