unless the ground was a steep slope while mowing or the mower was tipped over 35 degrees or more in any direction except with the handle bars down (spark plug up is ok), it will most likley be a blown head gasket between the pushrod gallery and cylinder. remove the head and get it re-faced then assembly with new gasket. valve adjustments are 4 thou inlet and 6 thou exhaust

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.

Like the other guy says drain the oil out. Disconnect the spark plug wire (for safety). Place the mower onto a stable platform to work from. To remove the drain plug usually you need a 3/8 ratchet and I use a short extension so I don't skin my knuckles. Put the extension end into the drain plug and remove. Have a drain pan to catch the used oil. Clean the area around drain plug first. When oil is drained replace the drain plug and tighten. Add your new oil. ONLY ADD ABOUT 15 OUNCES. Use SAE 30 motor oil. Once you get the oil in set it on a flat surface and check for the proper level. Add if needed. Usually the push mowers only use about 16 ounces. I start with 15 because it is easier to add than remove the oil. Replace the spark plug wire, prime and start. It may smoke awhile to get the old oil burnt up.

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.
