In this order, I would clean or replace the air filter, per the manufacturer's recommendations, check that the carburetor mounting bolts or nuts are tight, check that the linkages are secure, and run some Sea Foam through it. If that doesn't work, I would remove and thoroughly clean the carburetor, and adjust it to the manufacturer's recommendations at that time, but count the turns on your idle screws, etc. first, so that if it does not run you can at least return to where you are at now.
