Hedge trimmer Kawasaki KGT 27A engine began revving to high speed

Our Kawasaki KGT27A powered hedge trimmer has begun to rev to very high speed right after starting it and I just have to shut it down. Any suggestion as to what I should check?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Check the throttle to be sure it isn't stuck wide open.

Thank you. The throttle/handle assembly had some crud build up and was keeping the throttle wide open. I'm posting another problem in a separate post, maybe you can advise me on that also.
