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.

have a look at the air filter it may be blocked with dead grass causing it to run very ritch and burning up far more fule than you need to, it could also be the choke stuck on, maybe the cutter blade is blunt making it work very hard ,if it is then file it till its sharp again,or the worst thing it could be is the piston rings have worn out and its burning engine oil in witch case fit new rings in it,,,still winter is nearly here and grass dont grow much then do it?
ps, i have a sheep for sale? baaa!

SOURCE: Mower blows white smoke
Depending on how old is your mower, it could be broken rings in the engine, or just excess oil. I would recommend to check oil level first.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Change engine oil
Check underneath the mower at the bottom of the engine's crankcase and see if there is a possible plug of any type there. Be sure you lift the mower the correct way when tipping , typically with the control handles going down towards ground...not on its side.

Testimonial: "The lawnkeeper model doesnt seemed to have a drainage plug at the model as one would expect. I was advised by the manufacturer to tilt the mower to one side to drain the old oil!"
