Have you adjusted the locking cam for forward. This cam is held in place with one bolt. The further you move it down the tighter it will make the belt

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

Non detergent, straight 30 weight.
Sometimes can be found labeled as "Tractor Oil". Otherwise, any premium 10w-30 I find in my experience with these stout 4-cycles to be just fine!
If breaking in engine from new, out of the box? Change oil with 10 hours on the clock with engine is still warm. You only need 3.2 Oz. to fill the crankcase!
So pour slowly. It is full when the trimmer is placed on a level workbench surface with the trimmer head dangling off the end. There is going to be a slight forward tilt away from the oil fill plug. Fill only until it just literally comes to the bottom of the oil fill plug with the trimmer laying flat on your workbench.
*DO NOT FILL IT UP WHILE HOLDING IT VERTICALLY!*
(I warned you. ;D )
Also at this time, clean and re-oil air filter and check your manual - these trimmers after break in require a valve lash adjustment. .005" @ TDC if my memory is correct....The manual I *think* states anywhere from .003 ~ .007 to be within spec. After break in, only need to adjust valves seasonaly. Regular oil changes @ 20~25 hours of run-time keeps them happy.

Sounds like that circuit there is a bare spot in the wire and when it gets jarred around the bare spot contacts the frame in turn shorting out the fuse and blowing it.
