leaf blower won't start

hi - I have a craftsman leaf blower. I think I screwed up the gas /oil mixture.
It won't start. I drained gas and replaced. then I took carb off and cleaned.
Since I never cleaned one before I was afraid to take it apart totally. I just sprayed the holes with carb cleaner and air. still nothing.
thanks.

Did you run it very long with the improper mix??? or did it never crank??. If it never started i would check the spark plug or maybe the diaphram in the carb is bad from sitting over winter

rebuild the carb. the diaphram is dried out or stuck.Its what pumps the fuel from the tank to the carb. In other words these carbs have a fuel pump built into them.
