    Trimmer was bought last season and used about 25 hours. I started it up earlier this week and the machine automatically takes off into 3/4 throttle. I pull the lever and the engine speeds up to maximum power, then when I release the lever it does not idle, it continues at 3/4 throttle. Can anyone give me some pointers on what to troubleshoot?

    It sounds like it got dropped or bumped. If the throttle is sticking and not returning to idle, loosen the screws on top of the carb that hold the cable bracket in place. That should free up the throttle "slide" in the carb. Tighten them back up and you should be good to go.
