Question about Homelite Garden
This is as simple as it gets. If the carb is 10 years old and has not
been rebuilt in the past 2 or 3 years it will need to be rebuilt or
replaced. The average life of the diaphragms is about 2 to 3 years,
If your carb has limiters which will only allow the adjustment
screws to turn about 1/2 turn, you will likely not get any relief from
adjusting the carb. You will have to take the unit to a local dealer
for help. Most likely you will need to replace or rebuild the carb.
The problem is that you most likely will not have a Homelite dealer
in your area. If you can not find help in your area try Southern
Supply Co. Their number is 205-833-2525 and they have anything
you will need for Homelite products and they will ship anywhere.
Ask for Jason. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: blower wont run at full throttle
Start with the spark plug it is the easiest.
But sounds like the carbourator is dirty, Probably fouled with old gas varnish. When it is idling give it a little throttle, flip the choke on and then full throttle. If it goes full throttle and doesn't conk out, it is a fuel issue.

Unit is either having trouble picking up enough fuel or muffler is plugged. First disassemble the muffler and check that the flame arrestor screen is not clogged. Clean as needed. Cost, $0. Check fuel pickup line from fuel tank to carbureator for cracks. Replace if brittle or cracked. Next would be to check the diaphram in the carbureator. Even a small hole or crack can cause this problem.
