Engine wont shut off

I can't get my Enya .15 to shut off on approach. The resulting landing are a little faster than I'd like. I'm belly landing so I'm also breaking props. I don't get it, if the carb is closed why does it still run??? Any ideas what I can do?

If the carb is closed and it is still running it is sucking air from somewhere else. The carb may not be seated all the way or the o ring may be damaged. I suppose its possible that the fit between the throttle barrel and the carb housing may be letting air in also. There has to be some clearance so the parts can move but it may be excessive.
