May not be all that terrible. Could be stuck or faulty carb float allowing fuel to over fill and load up crankcase. Kind of like the ball float in toilet tank. If stuck, usually light tapping on carb bowl with a small plastic mallet or handle of screwdriver may clear this up. If float has a hole, it must be replaced.
