I think I know where it goes but how it stays
There is a recall on the UT models, all you have to do is call the costumer service center for homelite. they will give you a number for the closest warrenty center that will adjust you throttle cable free of charge. I went through two UT 10520's before i started researching the problem.

I had the same problem 2 weeks ago. I figured out that the way the cable is engineered, it is holding the throttle open. I actually found that if I pushed down with my knee on the hande and wiggled it, While spraying WD-40 in the cable. Eventually it freed up, and started working right. This saw was assembled in China, and is a prime example of why we should not allow stuff to be made there. The quality is very bad. I have an old 16" XL that still starts better than my new UT10520. I bought the new one because I liked the old one so much. That will teach me. Now I am having a problem with starting it at all, and the manual says "Contact an authorized service center for carburetor adjustment." I should have paid more money and bought a Sthil.

I had the same problem. I had to shorten the cable sleeve and it works great. Now all I have to do is find the stock adjustments for the high and low on the carberator. Had to cut slots into the adjusment screws.

Homelite UT10520 Chainsaw runs wide open. It is not in the throttle. The carburetor is clean as a pin and there are no leaks. It must be in the electronic timing module. I just do not know how it is timed.

Same problem-fixed by opening handle and engine cover, getting access to both ends of throttle cable and spraying motorcycle cable-lube into cable body. After some new adjustments to throttle speed screw, it runs like it should from Homelite. Never buy Homelite again.
