The kill-switdh wire is disconnected. loose. or broken. The kill-switch wire starts from the OFF position of the ignition switch and meets another wire that leads to GOUND to stop the engine.

How do you adjust carb Briggs and stratton 12hp?

If the engine starts: Let the engine warm up for about 5 minutes and S-L-O-W-L-Y close the needle valve (rotate clockwise) until the engine starts to stall for lack of fuel. Then open the needle valve (rotate counter clockwise) until the engine starts to stall because of too much fuel. Set to half-way between the two extremes. If the engine doesn't start: Close the needle valve by screwing it in clockwise just to a point where you feel it stop - DO NOT FORCE IT!! or you will ruin the tip. Open the needle valve about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 turns. This should be okay to start the engine and then follow the procedure above. If the engine hesitates under a load, open the needle valve about 1/8 turn for a slightly richer mixture. This is the basic standard procedure with nearly all Briggs motors.
