The throttle should have a return spring, that would keep it at idle until the trigger is pulled. This spring is broken or off and is not returning the throttle. What is the model number of the blower?

Spring is on the carburetor, see the attached link. Is spring returning the throttle? Or is spring broken, or out of position?
