Snow Blower Idling issue

I have a Snapper Snow blower purchased in 1994. (Model I7243) It seems to be having some trouble idling when not being used. When I am using it in the snow it is fine but if it just sits it seems like it wants to cut off. I had it serviced at the beginning of the season. They cleaned the carb. Maybe it needs replaced? If so where could I find a new one? Any other ideas of what could be wrong?

Locate all three carb adjustment screws: the power adjusting screw (located near the bottom of the carb facing vertically), the idle mixture screw (located near the middle of the carb facing horizontally) and the idler speed screw (located next to the top of the carb facing horizontally).
The default setting on the adjustment screws is 1-1/2 turns from fully closed.
