Check the oil level in the engine and make sure it's not overfull or contaminated with fuel.

Thank You 30 year Tech

Motor works perfectly. It was full of gas when I drained the oil. Replaced with fresh oil, cleaned up around the motor, new spark plug and it ran like new.


Thank You

Why was the oil full of gas????

Carburetor is probably flooding and filling the cylinder up with fuel. It may be real slow and may not be a problem for a day or two, but if it sits awhile it's possible it will happen again. Keep an eye on it and if you see that gas is filling up the carburetor, you will need to take care of the problem or you will end up with gas in the oil again.
