It has two screws or at least it should. One with the letter L next to it and the other with the letter H next to it. Turn both in lightly until they seat. Then turn the L screw out 1 1/4 turns and the H screw out 3/4 turn. This should get the unit running unless you have other problems. then fine tuning may be required after you get it running. If it bogs out when throttled turn the L screw out another 1/16 of a turn. Then if it won't rev like it should turn the H screw in 1/16th of a turn.

If this doesn't work then you'll probably need a carburetor kit and tune up.

Good luck

The raising or reving back up before it dies is a sign of fuel starvation. Check the diaphram in the carburator.

I have a Weedeater brand weedeater that needs the carburator adjusted. I am not sure how far the adjustment screws need to be turned out. Can you help?

Start with about 1 1/2 turns. Then, when you get the motor started, hold the throttle to full and adjust the screw until the motor revs up and evens out. Likewise for the low speed. If you give it the gas and it dies or stutters, turn the other screw slightly 'til it revs up without hesitation.

Can't adjust carburator.

look on the carburetor. there will be 2 screws right beside eachother. one is an idle jet and the other is the main jet. if you want faster or slower idle speeds, adjust idle jet. if you want more power, adjust the main jet. you have to get them set just right . they might smoke a little bit because you are throwing more fuel to it which means you are getting a richer mix

New carburator doesn't passed fuel

Are you sure that that the replacement is the correct one. Also, why did you have to replace the carburetor . Did you verify that the carburetor was the problem? Did the weedeater run by priming? Did you check the pump and lines? If these methods were tried and did not reveal the problem, then I suggest that you get professional help.
