Either one of 2 things:

Fast idle cam stuck, hold throttle part open and move the choke plate. You will see a rod attached to a cam that should move freely. Clean up with some choke cleaner spray.

Stuck secondary, Carb bore other than the one with the choke plate. Spray carb cleaner down the bore and hold throttle part open and take a screw driverer and "work" the secondary throttle plate back and forth.
