When I pull on the pull start, it doesn't start. When I put carb cleaner on the carb, it starts but won't accelerate. I don't know if it could be the carb or the spark plug or anything else. I also cleaned the carb completely, so I don't know what to do next. Could it just need adjusting in the choke and idle screw?

Does it stay running?
If it runs but has no power it's either the reeds or the air to fuel mixture usually.
You can check the reeds to make sure they lay flat and aren't bent.

Change the sparkplug,,,,,,,,,,run it on fresh premix and also check to see what the condition of the flywheel magnets are...........If theyre rusty they need to be cleaned up aswell as the pickup coil and regapped to .020"

Depending on what model you have JTM's advice could be spot on............
