Troybilt Trimmer won't idle and run--Help!

I have a Troybilt 2 cycle trimmer, Model TB25CS, that I am having problem getting to run constantly. It is about 7 years old and I have not had any problems getting it to run before. I do the normal starting procedure, pump the primer 10 times, press the ez start lever, pull the starter rope, let run for a few seconds, pull the throttle and then it dies. The unit won't die(and will continue to idle) until I pull the throttle at a higher speed and release the ez start lever.

I have tried normal trouble shooting procedures..new fuel, new spark plug, cleaned the air filter, cleaned the spark arrestor, adjusted the carburetor a bit.

Any ideas of additional things to try? Thanks!
