First you will have to get a carburetor kit ,it consists of diaprams and inlet needle,you then remove the two srews that hold carburetor on the engine and remove gas lines,also the throttle cable remove screws that hold ends of carburetor on under these you will find the diaphrams and needle remove these be carefull not to loose the little spring under the needle lever.
!get you a can of carburetor cleaner and spray carburetor the blow it out with air you will notice little jets in carburetor that have to be clean use a wire from a bread tie to clean them out install new gaskets and diaprams in same position you took old ones off.you can also look at carburetor to see what kind it is walbor,zama,tilloson? type the name in google search and can get a diagram of carburetor if you loose your place,or just ask me.

I took the carb off (easy- two screws), rebuilt and cleaned it, removed the black "H" & "L" needle jet screws (with no screwdriver slots) with a tiny pair of needle nose pliars, 1/8 turn at a time. They are very tight. Then I cut the slots with a fine hacksaw blade and re-installed them. BEFORE you begin, MARK where the "pointer" notch is on each screw so that you know where to reset them and count the turns coming out. Also, cutting the slot 90 degrees off of the pointer mark helps.
An option would be to hold the carb body in a vise and cut the screw slots thru the aluminum guard. Be very gentle, the screws are soft steel. If I had to do it again, that's what I'd do.
Get it running and adjust the "L" at idle until it runs smooth as rich (open) as it can. Then hold the throttle wide open and open the "H" (high speed needle jet) until it runs smooth, as rich as possible. This can be a CHORE.
Remember, richer (more fuel) is better than too lean. Too lean means less lubrication and running much hotter. 80% of the cooling in gasoline engines is from the evaporative effect of the charge coming into the engine. That's why carbs ice-up well above freezing. Ask any pilot.

Homelite wants to sell you a new carburetor assembly. Your blower came equipped with a RuiXing brand carb. RuiXing does not offer any repair parts for their carbs, only replacement units.
Now for the good news....a Zama brand primer bulb fits perfectly on the RuiXing carbs. Check with your local small engine repair shop for a Zama primer bulb. The blower requires removal af the carb to get at both of the screws that hold on the bulb. It is not difficult, just one nut holds on the outer airbox cover...don't lose the little washers. Then one long stud and one short screw will take the carb off. Replace the primer bulb and reinstall everything the same way it came off.
