Throttle sticks echo 225 string trimmer

After a non-starting problem (despite using Trufuel) I cleaned the carb on my Echo 225 string trimmer (21.2 cc trimmer from home depot). Engine now starts and runs, but the throttle sticks at full open after depressing the trigger once. I have tried applying a little lubricant to the body of the throttle valve but this did not solve the issue. I would appreciate any insight or advice you might have.


Thank you!

If you took off the carb to clean it check the routing of the throttle cable and look at where the end of the cable hooks up to the throttle arm. It sounds like it's binding a little.
