anyway, once i got it off, just open up the bottom and it is surprisingly easy to take apart, clean and put back together.....as long as you don't get into any of the jets and screw settings.
in my case, i has a small piece of plastic from a gas cap that came apart that got in between the needle and the hole it occupies so's it wouldn't seat and seal.
the top of the needle is rubber and it can wear out and get a notch in it, which would then need to be replaced.
in my case, it had a little scum on it and a nice soft cloth, carb cleaner and some LIGHT scraping with a fingernail got it nice and clean and smooth. make sure you clean all around in there with cleaner as well as the little pivot pin for the float.
