Why is my new rider mower blowing out white smoke?

I just bought a Craftsman Briggs and Stratton rider mower (model # 917289210). I took it out into the lawn for its first ride and it was blowing out a lot of white smoke. I checked the oil level and it was fine.

It is very unfortunate that you just bought this new mower and its blowing out white smoke. Since this is a very new mower there are a couple of things you have to do before taking it out on its first ride. If you take a look at your owners manual it will tell you what to do before you use your mower. If you don't have your manual handy you can go to the top of the page here on ManageMyLife and click on the "manuals" button, enter your model number and you will access you manual. I hope this helps!
