Can't stop my lawnmower!

I have a qualcast hover mover. Usually the mower stops when l release the power  lever, but recently it has not been doing this. I have to disconnect at the socket.
I have looked inside the power box and the lever basically just has a spring on the end of  it, but not sure how it actually works to cut the power when the lever is released? Any ideas? NB the lever works fine in starting the mower.

    It could be something as simple as a sticking switch.  Have a close look with the cover removed and the power off.
