Craftsman Lawn Mower 700 Series

I just bought my lawn mower and it is the second time i have used it. While mowing the second time, i noticed the oil cap a little loose and some oil coming out as it started slightly smoking from the muffler. I checked the oil and noticed it was a little low so I added more oil and tightened the cap. It worked for a few minuted and then started smoking again majorly. I noticed oil dripping from the air filter compartment now and still smoking from the muffler. Again I cleaned it up and let it cool and tried again and it worked for a few minutes and then started smoking again. Whats the problem and how do i fix it?

New lawn mowers would not be expected to be smoking. I located a link from a previous expert post that may help find the cause. You can check the information if you like while waiting for the expert. Also if you can add the model number of the mower to this thread it will help the expert provide a better answer.
