Edlebrock 600 cfm on my car won't close choke.

Do the electric choke mechanisms break on these carbs. I took the car to the paint shop a month ago and now my car runs like crap and the choke does not seem to want to close no matter how long I run the car. the car seems to surge when I drove it home from the paint shop today. It was a 15 mile ride so it should have been warm by the time I got home.

Help, I am not sure what to do and spinning the tires to get in the garage is going to get me killed.

Did you try disconnecting the wires to the choke ?

Choke test

#1 turn on your key switch and take a test light and make sure you have voltage at the choke,if not trace back thru wiring. #2 loosen the three screws on the side of the choke cover a couple of turns out and with your finger push the choke plate back and forth, it should move freely,if not spray some Gum-Out on the choke shafts and work it back and forth till it frees up.To readjust the choke turn the choke cover till the choke plate closes then slowly turn it till the plate just starts to open and tighten up the screws.Start the car and retest for voltage by 5 minutes running time choke should be fully open.
