the tractor runs great until I start mowing and then it will run for 15-20 min then just kills and will not start. let it set for 20 min runs great for 15-20 min then dies again. if I don't run the mower it will run forever need help

I would first check for spark immediately after it stops, It sounds to me like a coil that is breaking down when it gets hot. After cooling it will heal and restart.

Welcome.

Agree, coil is probably the problem.

Check the gas first. Mine did that then it got worse. Finally it didn't restart. I took the hose off the carb and I had no gas flow. I blew into the carb hose and heard a pop in the gas tank. I had something blocking the gas flow above the fuel bowel. It never stalled again.

Check for gas flow, then coil, then condenser!----when they get heated up all kinds of weird stuff goes on with them! thanks; sonny

Sonny your right if the gas is ok check the coil and condenser for a gap in the windings that opens up when it gets hot
