It doesn't hurt the engine to shut it off while it is running fast. The throttle cable may need adjustment, or the idle speed screw may be turned in too far. Watch the cable at the carb when you set it to high, then move it to slow. If it doesn't move, it is broken. Can you slow it down by manually holding the throttle at idle? When you put the carb back on, did you make sure both linkages went back on exactly the same way they came off?
