My lawnmower's carborator is puffing out white smoke when I start it, how do I fix this?

Hi, I'm a fourteen year old who cuts my mothers lawn when it needs tending. I also go cutting lawns for a job. When we moved in our house our landlord loaned us her lawn mower. The lawn mower is a Craftsman Platinum 190cc 22" Briggs & Stratton Rear Bag Rear Propelled Lawn Mower. It is the best lawn mower I ever used. Two weeks ago, the lawn mower puffed out a little bit of smoke and I assumed that it was because I probably overfilled the tank. Today when I when to start the mower, the carborator blew out a lot of smoke. The amount of smoke coming from the carborator lowered, but it kept puffing out smoke. I would like to fix this because I don't want to return the landlords lawn mower in a bad state.
