the l is for idle and the h is for top end but thats not ur problem it sounds like ur carb is clogged there is a screen inside of the carb the fuel gets crystalized and blocks off some and sometimes all of the fuel ill bet thats the problembut u can try the adjustments first give the unit full throttle and turn the h adjustment screw in and or out till it sounds great and at full power if that dont work then do the screen in the carb

SOURCE: carb adjustment
Screw both screws right in (don't force them) Then turn each screw out 1 & half turns each OUT. This will get engine running. To fine tune- turn low speed screw out, bit by bit, while idling, till engine revs change, then turn screw in till revs change, the correct setting will be somewhere between the 2 adjustments you just made. Do the same thing to the high speed screw, but with full revs. Good Luck. Stevo..

>>The Following is an Instruction File I made for Correcting this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>****All the Carburetor Adjustments are the Same for Lawn Mower and Trimmers.
>>There are Several Location for the Air Mixture Screws.
>>The Idle Air Mixture Screws are Usually Located at the Top of the Carburetor Bowl and the Top of the Carburetor Body.
>>If the Main Air and Idle Air Mixture Screws are Side by Side on the Side of the Carburetor, then the Idle Air is the Nearest to the Engine.
>>The Main Jet Air Mixture Screw is Located in the Bottom of the Carburetor Bowl or Beside the Idle Air Screw on the Side of the Carburetor Body.
>>The Engine Idle Screw is Usually Easy to Identify because you can See where it Makes Contact with the Carburetor Throttle Shaft Plate Stop Ear. The H and L Air Mixture Screws Go Into the Body of the Carburetor and the Tips Cannot be Seen.
>>Some of the Older Model Carburetors have the Main Jet Mixture Screw Straight in from the Top of the Carburetor Body (this is Rare anymore).
>>If you have Cleaned the Carburetor (Disassembled and Soaked Overnight in Carburetor Cleaner (I Use Gunk). Then Blow Out the Passages with Compressed Air and Install a New Kit if Required.
>>Now Setting the Air Mixture Screws:
>>****Turn the Idle Air and Main Air Mixture Screws In Until SNUG **Do Not Jam** Then Reverse Both Screws 1 1/2 Turns.****
>>Holding the Throttle Full Open, Start the Engine.
>>Turn the Main Air Mixture Screw Clockwise Until Proper Revs are Obtained. Occasionally you May have to Turn this Counter Clockwise to Achieve the Proper Revs. Now Allow the Engine to Idle.
>>Set the Engine Idle Screw (Not Idle Air) so the Engine will Stay Running if Required.
>>Now Set the Idle Air Mixture Screw so there is No Hesitation when Throttling from Idle to Full Throttle.
>>Reset the Engine Idle if Required. If This Carburetor has a Single Air Adjustment.
>>Use the Section Above that Pertains to Full Throttle RPM Air Mixture Screw and then Adjust the Screw if Required to Eliminate Any Hesitation when Rapidly Throttling from Idle to Full Throttle.**
