How do you fix a smoking lawnmower?

It is smoking out of the muffler.

The model number of my mower is 917.287240 and I am convinced that it is a fuel problem. I took the carb apart and checked to make sure everything was working correctly. I couldn't find anything wrong. After I put it back together, it had stopped smoking so I went back to mowing the lawn. I engaged the mower and no smoke (previously, this caused it to smoke). But once I started mowing again, I got the same smoke. What is the solution? Do I need a new carb? I am only 2 week out of my 2 year warranty.
