Default Eurotek engine will not stop running

My Eurotek engine will not stop running when I close the carb completely....

Has anyone had this problem, and solution for this ?
This is costing me quita a lot of prop

Im not a glow engine master, and have only flown lots of electric planes, so all suggestins count

make sure the seal between the carb body and engine case is good, while running, spray some WD40 around the carb, where is disappears is where your leak is

Press down the carb hard and then tighten the fixation nut... if you compress the O-ring enough all leaks should be gone (at least there...).
