Ryobi leaf blower -won't start

I have cleaned the carb, put in fresh fuel, checked the fuel filter and lines, verified spark at the plug and can't get engine to fire. I sprayed starter fluid into carb and it still will not show any sign of firing. Moisture makes its way to the plug tip but no burning. Any next step suggestions?

Check the compression you need 90+ lb for it to run. Remove the muffler and inspect the piston and cylinder walls for deep scratches, if it has them the blower is trash. Have a good one. Geo
