    take it out,
    screw in all of the air and fuel control screws all the way while counting the number of turns it takes to get them all the way in. Write it down for each one.
    Take all the screws out,
    take the carb apart and spray the crap out of it with carb cleaner.
    Put it back together,
    put all the air/fuel screws back in all the way and then back them out the number of turns you have written down.
    put it back in
    thats it
