Accelerator handle slips back

I have an Evinrude 9.9 two cycle, 1996 that I use on my sailboat.
The when I turn the handle to accelerate, if I let go it slips back to a lower speed; it just doesn't stay where I leave it.
I bought a manual to fix, but found nothing in the whole manual!

Hi, It is a safety device. These small motors are equipped with a spring to return the motor to idle speed when you let go. You can ( and I am not advising you to do this) remove the spring so that the handle stays put when you let go. This should Fixya!

Bissell proheat 7901-9 the brushbar only turns when handle is completely upright. When I lean handle back to move machine, brushbar stops rolling. What could be the problem?

There is a lever in the machine that lifts the brushes when it is stopped. The lever can slip out of position. You have to take it apart to get to the lever.

1997 Evinrude 50 HP SPL. I have removed all the bolts holding the lower rnd to the engine, it seems to be hanging up on the shify shaft, and I can't find a way to drop the unit. It drops down about...

Okay this is on total memory. The shift shaft for a lot of those engines goes right up through the pilot shaft and exits just in front of the block under the carburetor(s). You will see the **** linkage arm connected to this shaft sometimes it's double nutted. See if you can slide the lower unit back up to the housing and put a bolt in it to hold then undue the shift shaft linkage, Remove the bolt and drop the lower unit. Be careful of the water tubes and check make sure the rubber grommets are in place in the pump housing not on the tubes. Clean up the pump housing and install the new impeller kit.
Put the impeller down the shaft on top of the impeller plate, lightly grease the inside of the housing the impeller plate and impeller. Then lower the pump housing down to the impeller while turning the drive shaft clockwise lightly push down on the impeller housing. This will fold the impeller blades all in the correct position and provide lubrication to the pump until the water gets into the pump. To make life easier re-grease the drive shaft spline and the water tube grommets this will ad ease in reinstalling the lower unit. be careful to make sure you thread the drive shaft, water tubes and shift shaft all in at the same time. After installation you may find you need to adjust the **** linkage.

Whenever I turn left and accelerate quickly, the transmission seems to "slip". It does not do that when I accelerate and turn right. Any ideas?

Have you checked the fluid level. It will do this when it's low. The fluid runs away from the filter pick-up.

Spendide 2100 won't do dry only cycle?

I own a Splendide 2100; it is installed on my sailboat. I love it, but it is a little picky. To do a "dry only", set the time you want and then ensure the dial is on "Reset" (doesn't matter which one). The LED should flash very slowly indicating it is ready to run a cycle. Turn the dial to the "Dry" indicator of the dry cycle you want. You will hear a very short gush of water (not sure why it does this) and the dryer will start. If you want to stop it before the time runs out, turn the dial to "Reset", power it off for at least a minute, then turn it back on. You should hear the lock click letting you know you can open it. Don't force the handle or you can break it.
