I'm not sure what engine you have but the first place to start would be to clean the points. Most likely that's your problem.

little rectangular box on the carburetor side of the engine, down near the oil pan, facing the front of the tractor.
Two standard headed screws attach the cover, unless someone has messed with the points before-then there will only be one screw!

Now you need to clean the fuel system. Your fuel flow is restricted and with the choke on it runs. Prolly will need t pull carb off and apart for cleaning. The replacement carbs for the kohler engines are fairly cheap. 20 bucks or less. Be glad it not a Tecumseh,they are near 100 bucks. Or you can get a rebuild kit for your carb. Maybe a good cleaning will work. Be careful with the gaskets.

Hmmm... I must have gotten a great deal on the new catb for my Tecumseh engine on a large chipper/shredder. Was only $30 or so, found on ebay..
