New Honda 2.3 outboard not running

Just got this motor about a month ago. It ran fine the first times out. Today, third use, it will only run half throttle or above on half choke. Even when warm, it now needs full choke to start. It will not idle without immediately stalling on any choke setting. On half choke, half throttle it runs smooth as can be. With the choke off and 1/3 to 1/2 throttle it runs but has oscillating revs.

Any ideas?
