I am not familiar with the model but if you have a mechanical automatic choke it sounds like the linkage to the choke is disconnected or that the choke is somehow jammed or malfunctioning.

Exclamation More info

Thanx 4 yr answer , but it's more complicated than that

The choke and fast idle R independant functions on this carb , the choke works fine but the fast idle system is non-functional.

If some1 cud explain the fast idle system I can take it from there

There are too many possibilities. If the car has an electronic control system. Have you been messing with anything?

Throttle adjustment... Flow control meter?

You will need a manual to figure out what went wrong and to set it right.

Exclamation Not quite !

U wud have 2 B familiar with the model 2 understand this particular problem.

There R no engine electronics except for the ignition system , but that is not associated with the carb. The carb has an electromechanical system for fast idle , but without operating information I cannot fault find it.
This is a malfunction not an owner induced problem

Thanx anyway
