My mower was smoking upon start, but would not start (grey/white smoke).   I noticed it was low on oil.   I simply changed the spark plug and added lawnmower oil SEA 30 (Walmart -  plastic blue 20 fl oz container).  Started up on the third pull and smoked a bit, but then was all good.  No smoke!   All the other recommendations are great, but you may find that it is easier than you think.
