Honda mower throttle goosing....

Actually a craftsman w/ Honda engine. When blade in not engaged,the mower runs like I am goosing the throttle up & down. When I engage the blade, it runs fine. I've replaced the air filter & plug. Any ideas?

Low speed circuit (air bleed) has some obstruction in it. Carburetor needs to be cleaned out good, make sure all the orifices and passages are clean.
