Weedeater idle and revving problem

When I first start my weedeater, it idles fine. But after I use it for a short period of time, it idles very high, like almost half throttle. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Thanks

Hello Aubie!

Your symptoms are pretty much classic of an air leak. Probably at the crankcase cover, which happens to be plastic and warps sometimes when it gets hot.
