Ryobi tiller fills with gas

Its a ryobi 2 stroke 410r 31cc 9" tiller. I used last year and it was acting up a little but worked OK. The I get it out this year and a few days ago I was using it and it worked fine, I shut it off then 2 days later I go to use it and the tank is empty. I fill it and it works fine. Yesterday it wouldnt start, gas was running out of air filter and exhaust. Then today the same thing happened and I had to take the spark plug out to dump all the gas out of the engine. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks alot

I'm afraid it's time for a carb kit. The whole carb kit is required, not just a cleaning. Sorry Make sure to soak all parts & blow dry with compressed air. Roger

What really sucks is that its not my tiller. A friend droped it off last year and I didnt want to use it but he left it anyways.
