Craftsman snowblower exhaust

Have a craftsman 21" 5 h.p. snowblower that emits a lot of heavy smoke from the exhaust pipe..Model 536.885213..I was wondering if it is a simple adjustment on carb. or is this carb. not able to be adjusted. Any help would be appreciated.

forgot to mention, exhaust is so strong that you feel the ill effects from it after using..I am hoping that I can fix it myself. Thanks for any help.

Problem is most likely in your gas oil mix. I would suggest running the machine out of gas and then have a brand new 50:1 mix. Buy a good quality 2 cycle oil, Echo or Stihl and put exactly 2.5 oz. oil to 1 gal gas.
