Why not let Black & Decker dealer service take care of if for you?

I have used their service on my 14-year old Black & Decker mower on the few occasions that I needed repairs and paid a very small price.

One engine startsand you move throttle to run, engine runs at extreme rpm's and will not throttle down

John the governor is probably sticking, check for dirt and debris, make sure spring/ linkages are still attached, after cleaning lubricate linkages with lubricant WD or similar. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I need a diagram or schematic of the carb showing the throttle and choke linkages so I can set my linkage for choke and throttle

U need a service manual unless you know someone who knows what is what. Nest time you will take a picture in advance before you disassemble something.

Where can I get a diagram of carb choke and throttle linkage set up?

I bought a brand new 13 hp Tecumseh on my rider,was trouble from day one,fought it tooth and nail,finally took to shop,they put a brand new Taecumseh carb on it,couldn't get it to run,went to a dinky lawn mower shop,was told the carb was not the right one,wow,they sold me a used one that looked way different,but it worked super,so try another non-tecumseh carb or fight it forever.

How do i repair the throttle control on my briggs and stratton engine?

Depends what you mean repair..if it is in place but it isn't pushing or pulling the carb linkage..check the small clamp at the point where it connects to the carb linkage,,that clamp slips and doesn't allow movement..set it to the correct movement and tighten..if you are talking replacing it..onhook at that clamp and disconected the cable,,just mark or remember what connection hole it came out of...then remove the handle bracket on dashboard..normally two screws...note depending on the model you may need to remove or loosen and set aside the gas tank..the cable comes in a complte kit or just the cable..I suggest the complete kit..but you can disconect from the handle and replace just the cable. After the handle and cable is replaced..push it to the open throttle and then push the linkage to the full throttle position and tighten the can make further fine tuning from there..

Revs to high

The throttle plate is spring loaded to pull wide open, opposed by the governor which will pull the throttle closer to closed when the limited or specified rpms are reached. If the governor arm does is not connected to the throttle bell crank(linkage broken, off, or missing), it can't pull the throttle closed. If the arm does not move to close the throttle, the governor is likely broken inside the crankcase. or needs adjustment. The internals are a spool that moves based on rpm, pulled up by flyweights that has the external governor arm shaft 'trapped' in between the spool 'ends'. The spool will move the shaft and in turning, move the arm to pull the throttle closed. You adjust the arm on the shaft so the governor can pull the throttle completely closed with all the slack taken up.

Just bought a tecumseh 5hp. horizontal engine on a leaf vacum (used)the engineb only runs @ full throttle or stop .nothing in between.throttle moves but there is no change in engine may be a piece...

Much of the newer equipment is equipped with no throttle control feature. The engine runs at a governed pre-set RPM that enables it to do the most work at the most economical speed. This is particularly true of new lawn mowers (the push and self-propelled kind). If you would like to post back with the exact manufacturer name and model number of this machine, we can look for a parts diagram to identify exactly what fuel delivery system is has and how it is set up.
