Weed Eater grass trimmer

Was a few weeks ago my weed eater stopped running..I took off the primmer ball to see why I wasn't getting any gas into the carb,. So I took off the gas cap only to find the hose was disconnected from the lead hose that holds the filter...I noticed that the rubber hose was rotting away...So I replaced the hose and it still won't stay running...I took the filter off to see if it may have gotten clogged up..But It still will not stay running...Does anyone have any idea what would keep it from running....If I switch the choke lever from full choke to half choke I can keep it running for a short time...But if I let off the choke..it stops .............

If it's old enough to have rotton fuel lines, You'll also need a carb kit as the little diaghragms are probably stiff & won't pump fuel anymore... Clean any passages in the carb when you have it apart... The carb manufacturer has manuals online once you find what you have for a carb... Hope this helps... Roger
