Most likely, the mechanical governor is damaged inside the engine. If you have tools, a sense of adventure, and lots patience, this can be replaced for a modest cost in parts.
If not, take it to a reputable repair shop.
The governor replacement involves engine removal, opening the crankcase, lots of parts-cleaning, and attentive reassembly.
Would be happy to help you if you decide to tackle this repair.
Hope this helps.

One thing I read is that on some the arm from the govenor shaft can slip on the shaft so the arm is rotated on the shaft to a point the govenor isn't even in contact with the internals driving the shaft. On those units a clamp bolt becomes loose causing the problem.
I suspect if there IS an internal problem it is severe and one would have to disassemble the engine before operating it lest damage occur from loose parts.
