My riding mower stops moving forward after 30 minutes of cutting it starts right up the blades engage properly and cuts great it will just stop moving

Check under the seat under the battery box there you should find the drive pulleys for the rear end the belt could be worn out and turned inside out causing it to slip or stop pulling once it heats up mine was installed inside out from Lowes when I purchased the mower causing me to replace the belt hope this helps

Sounds like the throttle position sensor - will make it upshift and downshift erratically also. Around $24.00, 5 mins to pull and replace--bottom electrical connector on your throttle body-drivers side-two torx screws hold it in

Brand new Ariens riding mower dies when given full throttle

Your carburator needs adjustment, and since this is a new mower, this should be covered under warranty. Check the Ariens website for the closest certified repair shot to your zipcode. If you got it at Wal-Mart they may just replace it.

Starts well,runs wellfor five mins but then cuts

My first guess would be the fuel filter. It is probably almost completely plugged.

Mower keeps cutting off while trying to mow or ride with blades dis engaged. It will act like it is about to cut off a few times then it finally will. Doesn't matter the throttle position( low or high)....

This might be a stripped wire somewhere, maybe a wire going to a safety switch under the seat or on the cutting deck and it is earthing against the body from time to time.
