Homelite weed eater running problems

I've checked the archives about my problem, but don't seem to find the exact answer I need. My weed eater will start, but will die when I accelate or change to half choke or run position. As far as I can tell there are no adjustments except one for the carburator, and one for the idle speed. My weed eater is model UT2002A. The adjustment for the carburator ( I assume) is a white plastic (sort of odd shape screw) that is beside a red plastic something?. Sorry for the uneducated descriptions. Thanks for any help.. I have turned the screw, but it did not help.....

You need to remove and clean the carburetor at least, and it may need fuel lines too.
