Weedeater Won't Run

I have a Poulan Pro Model # PPB100 711820 that's mabye a year old. It will not stay running long. I will choke it and pull then switch it to half choke and it will run for a few seconds and that's it. Any ideas?

Back the high speed adjustment screw out about 1/8 turn.Thats the one right behind the air filter,you will probably gona have to pull the plastic limiters off of the screw in order to adjust it.

I looked at the adjustments on the weedeater and there is no plastic limiters on it. There is 2 knobs that are splined and will take a special socket. Any ideas where I can get this socket?

You have one of the newer tamper proof carbs. I would start by checking to see if it's still under warranty. Otherwise, I think you may wind up needing to clean the carb.
