Idle Evinrude Etec 25

Hello,
I have a Evinrude Etec 25hp. The engine works correctly. After running it at 2.500rpm or more, and put it again in slow motion, the engine has a stable idle during some seconds. Suddenly the idle increase automatically without touching the throttle.
It could be in relation with the temperature of the engine/EMM?
Thanks
Captain

How many rpm does it increase to and does it stay there even with the throttle closed?

Exactly I don’t know in how many rpm increase the engine because it is tiller handle. I calculate that increase around 200 rpm and it stay here even with the throttle closed.
The model is E25DTLAB. Serial num: 05398295

Two things that can increase rpm with the throttle closed are the throttle position sensor and unregulated gasoline entering the intake manifold from the VST or leaky fuel pump. Free play or loose linkage could also be a culprit.

If a visual inspection does not show any abnomalities, it is recommended that you contact your dealer.
