The surging is usually due to only a few things. High speed surging is a clear indication of a carb that's running too lean, and easy enough to fix. Surge at all speeds is usually an indication of a poorly adjusted governor. Try richening the mixture, see what that does, and work from there.Sep 17, 2018

The self contained ignition module and coil generally has a single wire that goes to the on/off switch.

There only is the possibility of a switch problem, the failure of the switch to ground the wire or there is a fault with the wire itself. If there is no external fault then the fault must be within the coil.

It could be a weak spark but most likely it is not receiving the fuel it needs for full throttle operation.

Assuming the fuel is fresh and there isn't an excess of oil this can be tested to some degree by opening the throttle fully and then partially applying the cold start if it can be applied separately or partially covering the intake of the carb with a finger if it can't.
If this improves things it proves the mixture is too lean and it could be a blockage or a matter of adjustment.

One thought occurs - if it was ok before being idle over winter, it is possible the crankshaft oil seals have lost flexibility and air is being drawn past them into the crankcase.

Perhaps the fluid has become contaminated and is foaming and/or one or more filters is being partially blocked after running a while. Perhaps also the fluid is boiling due to a lowered boiling point caused by contamination.

The fact it is ok while cold is likely to indicate the trouble is related to one or all of the above and so cleaning or replacing the filters and replacing the fluid seems the most appropriate initial action and if the trouble persists the next step will be to check the pump is maintaining the rated pressure when hot...

You meant air filter is saturated with fuel?

Yes, then likely the carburetor inlet needle valve is not functioning. Could be stuck valve, bad float, debris in fuel. Remove carburetor bowl for inspection.

I don't think it matters though somehow storing it level seems more sensible.
It is more important to store it where it will be protected from wide extremes of temperature and high humidity that creates lots of condensation - this is due to the amounts of flexible materials in the motor and the ignition module.

Long term storage should be with an empty fuel tank and the engine run until the carb is empty.

Strimmer line is consumed constantly in use either by wear against abrasive surfaces or being snagged against stems and suchlike it can't cut through and so tends to break. With lots of patience a lot of those stems can eventually be cut.

Early strimmer users became fed up with the process of stopping work, upturning the machine and releasing more line and starting over and so in order to maintain sales the bump and automatic feed heads were developed.

You description suggests you are using your low powered grass trimmer for heavier work than it is designed for.
