New 4 cycle Troybuilt weedeater dies out?

I am tring to help out a friend with his newer weedwacker. I changed the gas and oil,pulled the muffler and pulled apart the carb and sprayed it out with carb cleaner.But it still does the samething starts and Idles and runs at a very low speed.But when you give it anymore than 1/4 throttle it wants to die.This unit was new 1 year ago and only ran twice.The unit did the samething it did for me after the second use of last year.I think it needs a new carb.It has a non adjustable carb.

Sounds like a restriction in the carb. It will probably need better cleaning or replacement.
