If it is a 4 cycle blower, you do not mix oil with the fuel....It takes straight Gas. there is an oil cap to put engine oil in crankcase, this only usually takes 2,3,4 oz. of oil. Sounds like your Spark Plug probably fouled out from having oil mixed in your gas. I would recomend changing your Spark Plug and put some Fresh GAS only in the blower, dump the old stuff out !!! You should be on your way Blowing in No Time !
You may have tried this but fresh gas. If it only had an hour on it but it sat around for 6 months or a year, the gas may have gunked up. But you probably already knew that. If it is gunked up try putting a bit of straight gumout or the like (not the spray but the carb. cleaner you mix with gas. and let it sit a few hours or over night the try and start it with a full tank of fresh gas mixed with the proper amount of oil. NOTE: there does exist some possibility that this may ruin the carb so you may want to start with just a small amount of gumout mixed in W/ gas. but since it sounds like you are about ready to through this out . . .
did you burn all the gas out at the end of year last year if not bad gas will leave deposits in the carburator.here is a simple sugestion drain any gas out of it thats in it .put fresh gas in it and 2 table spoons of marvel mystery oil in gas tank you can get it at any auto parts store crank it untill you are sure fresh gas oil mixture is in intake wait an hour and let the fresh gas\oil mix do the work.pull plug dip it in fresh gas put plug back in and try to start it this often works if it dont you could have leaves .dirt .rust .or debris on surface of flywheel ,or a bad sheer pin on flywheel the sheer pin is whar times the engine on most small engines good luck i hope these sugestions help
I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt. Hope this helps!!
