If you're moving the throttle lever on the handlebar, but the throttle control bracket at the carburetor is not moving, then you have a broken throttle cable or handle/lever.

You will not have three springs, two at the most. Do you have shrubs or bushes you have to mow under? If so, the arm where the biggest spring, at the point closest to the spark plug, may have gotten tweeked. Just bend it out to increase RPM's.
