Too much oil in the crankcase (overfilled!) Engine speed is too high. Oil filler cap or oil fill gasket is damaged or missing. Breather mechanism is dirty, damaged or defective.
Common signs include oil leaks, excessively high idle, and a decrease in engine performance, power, and acceleration.
As mentioned above, the high probability of oil leakage from the valve cover is caused by the failure of the crankcase ventilation system. In addition to leaking into the engine under pressure, oil leaks into the combustion chamber.

How do I remove and clean air filter? – Briggs & Stratton Lawn-Boy 10640 20-Inch 6.5 HP Gas Powered Lawn Mower
There should be a square of plastic on the side of the engine which is opposite of the muffler. It has a small hex head with a slot cut in it. Remove this plastic cover and the air cleaner should be inside of it.

You haven’t supplied a lot of information but generally when this happens it is due t the mower being tipped the wrong way.
If you must look under the mower then tip it back with the handles to the ground and front wheel in the air.
Now to rectify your problem; The air-filter will probably be saturated with oil. It will probably be the cartridge type which is not serviceable. Purchase a new filter (take your old filter so the sale person can compare like for like). Before you refit the new filter, take out the sparkplug, it will probably be saturated in oil – wash it in petrol, let it dry then refit it. The engine should start and belch out great quantities of smoke. Don’t be alarmed this will burn away. Once the smoke has cleared, check the oil level, fit the air filter and mow your lawn.
I have a Kohler 17 HP engine on a Craftsman lawn mower. I have a clear fuel filter and can see that after operating the engine, the filter runs dry and the engine dies. I disconnect the filter and hear a short sucking sound (vacuum) and when I reconnect, the filter fills up again with bubbles coming up thru the gas tank. What is causing the vacuum to be created (does it also with the gas cap removed).
I would say it is the filter, you can straight line it and see if it does the same with the filter removed, I am pretty sure it won’t. good luck Tim
