We currently clean the bottom of the deck by turning the machine on it's side, carburetor up. I called Exmark and was told it is OK to clean it this way.
I clean my deck the same way. I occasionally have the issue of it shutting off also. I believe that when the fuel starts getting low in the tank, the tank starts developing a vacuum-when it starts to die-briefly unscrew the gas cap. This usually fixes it for me
