Go buy a new blower, you ran the wrong fuell/oil mixture and seized the motor.

SOURCE: Homelite leaf blower bogs down.
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!!

first replace fuel filter in the gas tank you will need to fish it out with a coat hanger bent on the end to replace if that still does not fix your issue carb needs to be rebuilt

Thats a lean condition. Check fuel lines and fuel filter. If the fuel ilnes are discolored or stiff or really super mushy, If the fuel filter has become detatched from the fuel line then the fuel lines need to be replaced.
If the carb can be adjusted you can try to adjust but its likely that the carb should be rebuilt with new diaghrams and gaskets.
Adjust by turning the low speed screw out ( counterclockwise) 1/2 a turn. The low speed screw is always the one closest to the motor and usually marked on the carb body with an 'L'. When you richen a motor up the idle will drop so you will probably have to turn the idle screw in 1/2 a turn. 1 and 1/2 turns out from light bottom is standard starting point ( 2 turns for poulan products). If you get more than 3 and 1/2 turns out on the low speed screw or if turning the screw has little or no effect then the carb should be rebuilt.

This is either a clogged muffler or carb. Take the off and see if it will rev. If not you need to clean carb and install a carb repair kit. Do not run long with muffler off.
