I'm pretty sure the 17hp the 15hp Kaws are about the same. I had this very problem with our 15hp on a 48 Lesco. The outer plastic sheild melts away because of the way they've routed the throttle cable under the red-hot exhaust. However, ours didn't freeze up like yours. I simply re-adjusted the cable position and it has done fine _ however bad planning on Kaws part to mount the exhaust / carb in such close proximity. In addition, the carb mounted on the front on the unit exposes it to all sorts of debris ( going through air filters like crazy!!) The 14hp is a much better designed engine. Good Luck
