My Craftsman Weedwacker, Model # 358.791042 will not stay running.
I have replaced the spark plug, completely cleaned the carburator, drained and reserviced with new gas and it wont stay running. After initially replaceing the plug and gas, it would start up and only stay running if I feathered the the throttle but as soon as I would go full open it would die. I feather the throttle log enough to completely run through 1 full tank of fuel. So I removed and broke down the carburator and cleaned it throughly and reassembled and installed. Now it will start and not stay running even if I feather the throttle.. If I leave the choke on after starting it will stay running for about 15 secs than die.. Anyone have any other thoughts as to what the problem is? Would it be worth it to purchase a new carburator for $30 and hope it will work properly or is it time to get another weedwacker?

barb, i have done all that stuff already. the next step to do is buy a brand new carburator. just checking to see if anyone else has any other tricks before i waste $30 only to find out the unit is screwed and i need a new weedwacker.
