Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer the problem is the carburetor , did it have gas innit from last year ? It sounds like one of the fuel air mixture passage ways are blocked and when you increase the gas it stalls the carburetor because it can't adjust . What needs to happen is the carburetor be removed and cleaned and a rebuild kit be put in it because that will replace the gaskets , fuel screen etc
