Engine runs strong than dies

    I own a Toro recycler mower #20037. It starts fine and runs strong for about seven minutes, than it starts to run rough and eventually dies. It won't restart immediately, once the engine cools it will start right up and run strong again for several minutes, and than die again. It has fresh gas, clean plug, I'm puzzled as to the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks ahead of time.

    Sounds like a bad coil.

    Bad coil would be my guess.
