JD Weedeater will not run above idle

T105C weedeater that belongs to a friend of mine will not run above idle any suggestions the normal things have been tried like clean filters gas and air, check plug, exhaust ports etc. It will barely idle when started and nothing above idle after it starts. Have not removed the carb and it has no adjustment screws that I can see.

Have you checked all parts of the throttle linkage to make sure the throttle butterfly is being activated with trigger movement? Later!

Most likely it's the carburetor, I would suggest taking it off and taking a look at the diaphragms to see if they are still soft and pliable. If it has any old build up in it, then you may need to clean it out with some spray carburetor cleaner.
