"Fouled Idled Circuit"on R-Tek

One of the solutions under troubleshooting in the manual to resolve engine surges is to clean the "fouled idle circuit"? Does anyone know what this entails? I can't find an answer anywhere and I have tried every other possible cause. Thanks

Dont have an R-Tek myself. Is it a plastic carb?
If so, this may help.

If it's some other carb take a look here.
