Normally you would turn the tiller handle/twist grip throttle to the stop position or until you can't turn it no more. All this does is retards the spark to the point that the motor conks out. If for some reason the spark advance/retard assy. is mechanically sticking then the motor won't shut off. In that case I would pull the Choke to stop it until you get it fixed.
