Blade won't stop rotating

<p>I just recently started using my HD36 and have noticed the blade does not stop when engine is idle.&nbsp; I have the throttle all the way out and set the drive belt loose and tight with no change.&nbsp; When I first start the engine the blade does not move at idle, but as soon as I first throttle up, it wont stop rotating.&nbsp; Thank you and hope to hear an easy fix!</p>

Did you loosen the throttle cable where you grip the handle. Also, make sure you used the correct position of the 3 for the cable. If it still does not quit rotating loosen the end of the cable where the clamp holds it on the engine. If all else fails there was an entry on this forum about using a screwdriver to slightly nudge the stop postion. I will try and attach a picture showing this.  Hope you get it working the way you like. I will have to upload a picture when I am home as i cant get this to work at this time.

Wolfe's suggestions sound spot on.  If it sounds like the engine is idling a bit high, it could be an adjustment of the nut that holds the cable in place on the control handle. There is a way to adjust the centrifugal clutch, but that would take a call to Tech Support.
