Question about Craftsman Garden
This has been tipped right over and now there seems to be oil in everything and it won't go, what can we do?
If the engine has been tipped oil will come through the engine breather and soak the paper filter, remove the filter, remove the spark plug and clean/replace, with the plug out crank the engine a few times to to evacuate any oil in the cylinder, replace the plug and try again ( with the filter still removed ) when it finally starts it will smoke quite heavily so do this out side and on a non grass surface ( oil sprayed from the muffler will kill the grass) it will smoke for some time until all the excess oil has gone, check the oil level in the engine and top up if required.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Check your oil level. If it is way over full, smell it to see if it smells like gasoline. If it does, you have a carburetor leaking gas into the engine crankcase. If you recently had the mower over on its side for blade changing or inspection, you have gotten oil up on top of the piston and it should burn off in a few minutes of running. Check your air filter to see if it is soaked with oil, replace it if it is.
