Sounds like you will need to re-clean your carburetor and reset your float level.
When setting your float level be sure to turn the carburetor upside down and make sure the float is level and not tiliting up or down. This will affect the fuel allowed into the carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
