In order to clean the carburetor it be completely overhauled. This means completely disassembled, all metal parts soaked in a commercial grade of carburetor cleaner, rinsed and blow dried, all fuel passages checked for flow, all jets probed with the appropriate size wire drill to confirm no blockage, reassembled with new gaskets and float needle, setting the idle speed and mixture screw after thoroughly warming up the engine. Just spraying the inside of the carb with some aerosol cleaner is not going to clear he tiny fuel passages that are clogged.
