The problem i have is if i flip it upside down in the edge position then the weedeater run good, but if leave it normal in the weeding position then it lose power. i clean the carb, even replace a new one, clean the tank, exhaust port, but it still have the same problem. Can you guy help me out with this matter. Thanks.

Check to see if this happens with a full tank of fuel. If it doesn't then it's possible that when turn the head, the filter is leaving the fuel supply when you're working with less than a full tank. Just a thought.

Have you tried adjusting the high end needle? Usually go fuel filter and breather and then go to the needle adjustment. Be sure to keep ports cleaned. Temp change and a little use causes these kind of problems.
