Sounds like the float is bad - what happens is the float sits just a little off and when you add the demand of more fuel it skewers the RPM by starving the engine.
Try removing the carburator and either adjusting the float by bending the tab or replace it. As part of this repair i suggest you just replace the needle and seat as well if they are over a year old.

First check the belt.Make sure it is tight when the lever is engaged,and the engine is off.Make sure the belt is on all pulleys,and inspect for frays in the belt.If the belt is ok then,run your hand under the fender around the area of the lever.Make sure there is no debris blocking the lever from fully engaging.If that is good.Next inspect the linkage between the lever`s handle and the deck.Again make sure there is no debris and all connections are snug.

it sounds like the deck and or the belt needs to be adjusted and aligned.
1st make sure mower is OFF and blades are disengaged. check to make sure the deck/blades are free of harden grass, twigs, branches, and that they are free moving.
2nd make sure belt is in its correct path.
3rd make sure the deck can be lowered and raised without obstructions
4th make sure no parts have been bent and the pulleys are parallel to the deck and the deck is not cracked or broken by the blades hitting something hard and the deck being damaged.
5th the belt adjustment needs to be tight but not over tightened (see a service dealer).
hope this has been helpful. contact me if you need further help.
