Default EB6500 won't shut down

I have a 14 year old Honda eb6500, It would only run under a load with the choke pulled. The spark screen was clear and I took apart the carb and cleaned it. It runs great now, as it should, low in auto mode and kicks up nicely under a load. with the auto mode off, it runs fast as it should. Now when I turn the key switch off it Idles down in both modes and pops and runs on and on not smooth, dies and comes back to life........It will even start with the key off not well but it will start. Maybe bad key switch or a ground somewhere? Has anyone had this before? I can get it to shut off moving the govenor arm.. What could I be missing? Any ideas appreciated... Thanks. Ron
