Sounds like your mixing too much oil with the gas and that is causing your smoking problem.
As for it not running very long I suggest you follow the directions below.

Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank, if you have one.
It may need replacement or cleaning.
Also check your fuel tank for debris/trash and clean it out if necessary.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy
and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard
and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor
internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small
rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid
and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of
the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to
reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the
carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need
to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes
to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first
and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Why does my 25cc Sears gas trimmer keep shutting off?


Clean the screen in the muffler output, or it could be a bad ignition coil, another way to eliminate possible problems, is to unhook the kill wire at the coil and or check it for wear.
remember to blow out the tank filter with compreesed air

Overheated and now it wont start


overhet then smoke as I'm sure you know is not good. then shut off and will not start, sounds like a blown head gasket, this would allow coolant to escape to the point of overheating, and the smoking as well, coolant in the cylinders via a blown gasket would prevent starting. DW Mylin

Why is the trimmer head smoking/melting?


I think the melting is in your the head the feed that hods the line. That's the plastic bit. I have had this happen not just with one brand either. The problem is vibration. if things are not properly balanced the head vibrates, the resulting friction causes heat, that causes more wear and more heat. End of strimmer head! I not buy them two at a time on ebay!

Ryobi 105r overheating


Well, I don't know just yet.
Is the smoke blue and does it do it the whole time that it is running? If so, the gas could be mixed too rich.
Exactly how long does it run? If it is 10-15 minutes then it is probably your gas cap that is the problem. It is clogged with dirt. The gas cap must be able to breathe or the carburetor won't get the proper gas flow.

The most likely senario is that the water pump went bad which caused the overheating in the first place. Then after the engine shut down, the water pump seized up. When the engine was restarted, the timing belt started to smoke because the water pump, which runs off the timing belt, was not turning. Since the engine overheated to the point of shutting down, blown head gaskets are a possibility. Put a new timing belt and water pump on it and start it up. If it runs OK, you're good to go.
