craftsman weedeater wont go above idle.

I have a year old 4 stroke craftsman weedeater. It idles great! Open the throttle and it dies. Disassembled the carb and cleaned, checked fuel and pickup in tank. New plug. Start and idles. dies on any throttle opening. Any ideas? Thanks!

Restricted High Speed Circuit

Sounds like there is still something wrong in the carburetor, it's too lean not feeding enough fuel to the engine to run above idle speeds. Main jet is most likely restricted or plugged, if the carburetor has any adjustments, then the high speed adjustment needs to be opened up some.
