My brother said he had a new carb kit put in but it still is the same.
Starts fine, idles, press the throttle at all and it dies.
I know there are some tweaks to make on settings and screws but is it
obvious from my description where one might start?

Just a guess, but has the exhaust/muffler been checked? Mud
Wasps just love to build their mud nests inside of them.
Your machine won't run right if it can't expel the exhaust
I took the carb off my string trimmer, cleaned it, new
sparkplug and then I finally realized it sounded a bit more
muffled than usual when it did sputter. Yup, mud wasp's had
filled the exhaust port up. I could just poke it out with a
stiff piece of wire on my machine. Listen to it when it does
run and make sure it has a good bark/sound, a good clue to
whether it might be an exhaust problem or not.
The repair shops must make a fortune fixing this problem...
