That hose is likely to be the crankcase ventilation hose. It allows combustion gases that get into the crankcase to be recirculated into the engine via the air cleaner. If the oil level is to high, oil can get sent back into the air cleaner along with the waste gases and flood the the cleaner element. Check the oil level, also make sure the unit is sitting on level ground, this can cause it to send oil back to the cleaner. Good luck.

Also make sure your air filter isn't clogged. This causes a lot of vacuum in the valve chamber and lets more oil accumulate in there than there should be.
