You will have to clean the carburetor and change the oil. Probably a stuck open needle valve in the carburetor flooded the engine and got into the oil. I would clean the carburetor change the oil and install a fuel shutoff so when you are done using it you turn off the fuel to the unit and let it run out of fuel. If it's electric start make sure you turn off the key when it stops running.
