Customer Question

i have a craftsman 6 h.p. walk behind mower. model #944.368450.
my question is when i start the mower it will go to full throttle and won't reduce at all. could this be caused because the resistance spring on the carb. may have been stretched?

Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. It could be the spring is bound or hung or it could be adjusted to tight . Can you get to the spring to see it , if so try putting the tiniest bit of a stretch in it to see if it lowers the rpms
