stihl fs80 strimmer

i have a stihl fs80 but it wont run. it will start if i put a small amount of fuel in to the carb but will stop as soon as it runs out.

i have made sure all the fuel lines are not blocked and have tried to clean the carb and exhaust abit but still no change. also the carb settings are all over the place now so if anyone knows what they should be that would be great, theres two screws ones labeled LS and the other isn't labeled but has a spring on it.

any help and advice to get it running again would be greatly appreciated, thanks rich

Best place to start is with a new carb kit from your local stihl dealer.
You could also resource just the diaphrams or kit ...likely a zama carb.
