Default Maytag Model 72 Not Shutting Off Right

I have a 72 and quite new at it.I understand that you shut it off by opening the air cap all the way.Mine will still keep running.The only way to shut it off is to close it all the way choking it to death.Makes it hard to start again.Anyone know whats wrong?

mud daubers nest in the tube??? one drove me nuts a few years ago. Darn wasps made a nest right at the bend. I had to remove the tube and use a soft twig to punch the bugger out!
