Craftsman snow thrower model 247.886911 only runs smooth at half choke.

When I turn the choke to "run" it does not kill the engine but the engine speed fluctuates back and forth. I've read that cleaning the main jet on the caburator might fix this problem. How do I clean the main jet on this snow thrower? Could something else be the cause of my problem?
