You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

Tilt it over so the oil cap is on the bottom...it'll rest on the handle and hang there...put a container under the oil fill pipe...something shallow like a glad sandwich container works perfect...get a paper towel, and reach under an unscrew the cap...all the oil runs out into the container...it'll fit !!
Wipe the dipstick off clean, and put it aside...take this time to look at your blade on the other side...it "should look" similar to wood chisel at the last 5 inches of the blade on both ends followed by a wing under it...BTW: their $12 bucks new...and worth it !!
Go back and look at the container and be sure the oil is finished draining...take the lid for the container and snap it on and move it out of the way (no body likes an oil spill)...wipe off the oil fill spout, and re-fill...takes about a half a quart, so don't over fill it !!!

If by fouled you mean the plug tip is wet with oil (you would also get a lot of smoke while it's running), the cylinder or rings are damaged and oil is getting by the piston. If the plug is dry and has lots of black soot on it, it's running too rich for your altitude. Most lawn mowers are set to run at about 1000 feet of altitude to work in most areas. If you are well above that your air is thinner and the carb will run rich. Depending on the type of carb you have, you have to adjust the fuel flow needle valve or get smaller jets to meter the gas through the carb.
