Echo Chainsaw-carb problem

I have an Echo CS-3000 chainsaw. It started running only when choked.Thought it was trash in fuel line so i broke down carb ,cleaned it and blew it out.Then it ran OK at idle speed.But when I give it some gas it bogs down and cuts off. Had to replace primer bulb but that made no difference in the way it ran. Thanks

Hello heron1960!

So it still runs ok at idle? If so, try backing out the high speed mixture screw 1/4 to 1/2 turn. It's the one closest to the air filter.
