The throttle shaft in the carburetor could be gummed up and won't return on its own. If that is the problem, remove the carb, remove the throttle shaft and clean so it will rotate freely. Just had that to happen on a 51 8n a couple weeks ago. If that is not the problem move on to governor.
Good luck, post back with what you found and Merry Christmas.
