My troy bilt did this and the manufacturer couldn't help.

The problem was this: it wasn't able to **** air through the gas cap. Thus the gas tank would get lower (as you mow) and a vacuum was created. It then starves for gas and quits. After a while of cooling, air slowly gets into the tank and it works again.

You can easily find out if this is the problem. Next time it stalls, take off the gas cap for a second (and listen to the air rush in.) Then replace the cap and if it starts easily, that's your problem. Solve it by getting a new gas cap--they're supposed to let a bit of air in around the threads, I think.

I have the same model from Troy-Bilt. I have only had it about 4 or 5 months. Mine has started using a LOT of oil. I noticed a significant increase in temperature compared to my old Husqvarna 2 cycle. Mine does not completely stall, but it does start to sputter when it gets hot. I am going to take mine back to Lowe's where I bought it. So far I am VERY unhappy with the TBP6040.
