are you sure you mixed the gas and oil exactly to the directions? if not, dump ot the old gas and put correct mixture in.a new sparkplug may help to. lucas

Such smoke would normally indicate a problem with the liquids being dispensed by the carb. Clue: lots of lube.
Depending on which disposable Homelite engine it is, maybe one of the bolts attaching the "jug" to the crankcase suffered brittle failure.
If no local service available, suggest replace it with something durable. E.g. Echo, Stihl, anything but cheap s**t. You should have no problem finding product evaluations, like from Consumer Reports, or knowledgeable neighbor.

Easy to fix. Buy something that does not have Homelite on it and it will run better. They are cheaply made and wear out rather quickly.
