Ariens snothrower wont accelerate

11.5 hp tecumseh ohsk 80-130
Starts fine wont accelerate. When moving control lever from slow to fast - no engine change. When moving control lever to off it shuts off. Starts right up but stays at idle.

Check the governor linkage. You may have a broken/missing spring.

Usually, the spring pulls the throttle open while the governor pushes it closed, it's a balancing act.
