Question about Craftsman Garden
Runs fine, starts when cold fine, but stop it and while hot it will not start.
Your mower may just be over heated. This is commron, make sure there is no dabris around the cyl inder head fins if leaves or grass get in there it will not be able to cool properly. your mower may have an air vaine on it that comes from the carb and directs air to these fins. it governs the machine if any of these parts are bent or not working properly this to will cause the mower to over heat and not start back up. Finally you may want to go and by a spark plug that is for high heat and will remove heat better than a cooler plug . good luck

fuel issue. probably has junk in the carb bowl that gets sucked up when the machine start. You might be able to get away with just taking the bowl off and dumping it out (you will see it there is junk in there. then dump out the gas thats in it and put fresh gas in. Ideally you should clean up your carb which is not that difficult. an air compressor on very low pressure will provide some assistance (10-20 PSI)

Sounds like it's running rich. If the mixture is slightly rich it will start well when cold, but when hot it floods. Check the air cleaner to be sure it's not clogged/blocked. Get a new plug for it and if this happens again just install the new plug - the new plug won't be fouled with fuel. If it started with the new plug then you're on your way to a carb adjustment (that is if the air filter/cleaner is clean)
