You just bought it which means it is under warranty. Take it back where you bought it or call Honda. You must have the vent plug installed to use the machine. If it is blowing oil out the vent plug then it is either overfull or it is building up pressure for some reason. Make sure it is not overfull and if not, then call Honda and avail yourself of the warranty. If it is overfull, remove enough oil to get it to the proper level.
Remove the spark plug, plug it back into its wire. Hold it close to the metal frame WITH INSULATED PLIERS. Pull the cord and see if you get a spark. If no it is the coil, plug wire or a safety switch. If yes put it back together. Take the air filter off. Spray some "easy start" or "carb cleaner " into the carburetor. Try starting. If it starts for a moment then dies, you do need to clean your carb.
The engine requires more fuel at higher loads. If unit sat up for some time the jets in carbureator may have become partially plugged due to varnishing. If this is the case, the easiest fix, is to add 'Sea Foam' fuel system cleaner to gas tank. engine may have to run several minutes for this to work. I reccomend tripling the dosage amount reccomended on the label. This should also resolve the problem if fuel starvation is caused by 'sticking needle and seat' problems. If engine stalls with an abrubt clunk, then unloader problems may be responsible. I unit sat up for a long-long time, you may be better off removing the carbureator and rebuild it or have it rebuilt professionally.
