Has engine been run or is it new. The carburetor has a stuck needle valve nd float, and the fuel is running through the carburetor. If bower is new, and never used, do you want to work on it, or it needs to go back to store!

Carburetor needs a good cleaning, may just need to remove the carburetor float bowl and clean the float and the needle valve. Here is typical carburetor.
