Why does my craftsmen weed wacker stop running when the choke is released?

I have a model 358.796600 craftsmen weed wacker (combination trimmer and edger) that recently will NOT run unless the choke is enabled. Whenever the choke is released the engine dies. I've tried replacing the fuel/oil mix and that hasn't helped. It will run indefinitely with the choke pulled out, I can even get some work done this way, but as soon as the choke is released the engine dies. I've even tried with the trigger in the same position as the choke, but as soon as the choke is released the engine dies. Any idea what might be wrong?

Go to EBAY and search for a Walbro carburetor adjustment tool. From your description (asterisk) it sounds like you will need the "splined" version of this tool. You should be able to get one for about $10.
