White smoke is oil burn off. First off, check the oil level (sounds dumb, I know) and make sure the oil is not overfilled. Overfilling would be the easiest solution. If there is oil burning onto the spark plug but the oil is not overfilled, I would think rings... possibly scarring in the cylinder. Something allowing the oil to seep past the piston into the head. If the cylinder is scarred, there are .020 oversized pistons and rings available for the engines, rebore the cylinder and place those in.

This is caused by two things low oil level and overheating, The oil also has a cooling agent in it so if it was run low the engine would not get lubrication and overheat possibly causing the conrod to break if you say its only 10 hrs old i would be talking to the dealer you purcased it from or the engine manufacturer. its unusual for an engine with very little hours on it.

Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.

White smoke indicates that it is burning oil. The smoke would be black if it was running rich. So probably the rings will need to be replaced eventually. These mowers are prone to problems but the carbie is least likely to be the problem. So before you adjust the carbie take the cover off the top and give it a good clean and check that all the hoses are connected and are not cracked. Then make sure the airfilter is clean, blow it out with an air compessor or better still get a new one. Then try it out agian. If this doesn't help there is two screws on the carby marked L and H. Turn these only 1/8th of a turn at a time and note or make their current position. Start with the H scew with the mower at full revs. Turn anti clockwise untill you get max revs then turn it back a bit. Running too lean will over heat the motor and damage it. Then if needed adjust the L (or Low)screw. If you get black or grey smoke when you push the throttle up from idle to full its too rich so turn clockwise. If if slows before it picks up to full revs turn anti clockwise.
