Question about Homelite Garden
My Homelite leaf blower had a similar issue. I could hear a metalic clicking sound when it was running.
It turns out the flywheel has a cast in place key which is soft aluminum. The bolt holding the blower impeller and the flywheel in place had loosened up enough to allow the soft key to be destroyed.
I carefully re-installed the flywheel using Loctite® 660™ Quick Metal® Retaining Compound. The important issue here is to make sure the flywheel in aligned on the output shaft to retain ignition timing.
The blower runs perfectly after this repair.

Its a fuel delivery problem. Its running lean.
Check the fuel line in the tank to see if the filter fell off. If the filter is loose in the tank than the best way to repair is to replace the fuel line. Also the diaghrams in the carb are dry or the screen is clogged. Lastly, if the fuel lines are not rotted and the screen in the carb is clear and everything is in proper working order then you can adjust the carb ( if it has adjustments). Start by turning the low speed needle out ( counterclockwise) 1/2 turn.
