Hi Craig, sorry to hear your having problems. the first thing to try is running the machine with the fuel cap loose. The cap has a vent that allows air into the tank as the fuel is consumed.

Ensure that the cooling shrouds are clear of and grass / debri buildup causing it to over heat.

If those fail, it is likely that you will need a new ignition module. As the module heats up it expands. if there are any weak spots it will cause a broken internal connection when expanded. When it cools off, it contracts and the weak connection is restored.
