Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you with this problem. By what you have stated I suspect the problem is the carburetor. I have posted an image below that shows how to access the carburetor. I recommend marking all of the fuel lines before you remove them. Once you have the carburetor removed click


to watch a video on how to clean the carburetor. once you have the carburetor cleaned use the instructions below to adjust the idle and high speed.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
