How do you adjust the carburetor on a featherlite fl20 weedeater?

The idle speed of the carburetor on a featherlite fl20 weedeater can be adjusted by turning the small screw that is located right next to the choke setting switch. For the best adjustment, the featherlite should be on and running. If the weedeater is running rough, the mixture can be adjusted with the low and high (labeled L and H) mixture tamper proof screws.
