You need to find out if it is losing spark or fuel when it shuts off. A cheap spark tester will work for this and can be purchased at Harbor Freight or an automotive parts store. If it has spark you can use carb cleaner to spray into the carb and see if it will stay running. Also how long does it run before it shuts off and does it start right back up after it shuts off? More info may be helpful as there are many possibilities.
