HT23 not wanting to shut off

When I run my HT23, it heats up, but then when I want to shut it off it does not want to shut off, It makes a couple more revolutions until it does shut off. It helps a little when I let it idle for atleast a minute. What could this be? I fine tuned my carb and put my idle screw down, but it still does that. I set my idle for 1000 rpms, is that to low? Any suggestions would be great. My key ignition is original, could this cause it not to shut the 12 volts off immediately going to the coil when I shut off the key?

mine does that when the air filter is clogged up as well. meaning it's gettin more fuel than air? but what old buzzard is saying too. you have to take the heads off per the maintenance at certain intervals and clean any carbon build up. those engines run hot it seems more than others i've had.
