How do I go about repairing the cable that runs from the carb to the trigger on the handle. When I squeeze the trigger, the carb butterfly moves and won't return to idle down. I can move the carb butterfly with ease, so I think it's in the cable. Can anyone help me ? Model 21s. Thanks, Glenn

Not positive on this one, but there should be a spring under the throttle lever, sounds like this is broken or not operating correctly. Dissasemble the handle to know for sure.
