Need tips to fix Ryobi Wipper snipper

My Ryobi W/S needs a service. Model RVC31EP. It is one of these units with the ABC choke. It will only run on B with no throttle, when you switch to C or use the throttle (even in the B position) it really struggles and dies.

When I let out more cutting wire or cut some heavier grass it goes to die also.

What should I be looking at to fix this problem.

If its related to the carby, Is there a way or product I can use to clean it withour having to pull it all apart. Im not real familiar with these devices.

the only way to clean the carb correctly is to dissasemble it and clean it and install a rebuild kit(about $12) if you don't want to mess with it or pay a shop you can by a whole new carb

Go to the nearest auto parts store and pick up a can of seafoam,and put a ounce in the carb.about $6.00 a can and let it idle in the B position,for about 5 to 10 minutes.I had good luck with it.Hope this helps.
