Weed wacker won't stay running

My echo weed wacker will start with the help of starting fluid. It runs for a short spurt with the speed lever full depressed and then stops. It is model SRM2100 serial #154172 Kioritz Corp.
I have cleaned the fuel filter thoroughly. I do not know how to set the adjustment screws and the engine won't run long enough for me to experiment with them. Please help.

I think you'll need to start by inspecting the fuel lines and priemr bulb for cracks and holes, and replace as needed. If no joy there, go on to the carburetor and disassemble and clean it out.
