Question about Craftsman Garden
I have a 26hp 42" twin V lawn tractor
If it's just out of winter storage, then it may be the fuel pump is dry. I've taken the fuel line off the pumps inlet side then attached a small funnel with extra fuel line to the pump. Keep the funnel above the pump, add fuel and start the engine. Once it starts, shut it off and reattach the original fuel line. I've had to do this for the past 3 years and only have to do this the first time - after that it starts all season.

Person has to be on the seat, battery needs a good charge, fuel has to be fresh ( less that 45 days old) oil level has to be correct. If all that is good, then check that the plugs are firing. If the plugs are good and firing it should run. If no spark you may need a "ignition control box" if your model has it. www.mowpart.com or www.sears/parts will have a parts breakdown.

lift your seat and look at the label that you got your model number from. to the right of the model number is the serial number. the first six digits of the serial number is the date your tractor was made - for example: serial no. 060802D002756 would make the unit made June 8, 2002

Two things come to mind. First it could be not getting enough fuel when hot due to carb adjustment being too lean. That could be that the float level in the carb is set too low or the low speed jet is set too lean. When cold the choke circuit in the carb supplies the extra fuel required.
Second in some enjines that have low compression they start cold but when hot the compression drops below 60 psi and makes starting very difficult until engine cools down.
I suspect a fuel problem.

There should be a pipe OR quick release valve coming out the right side at the bottom of the engine where it bolts to the frame. Most of the Craftsman riders I have worked on, had a long pipe with an elbow at the end of it and a plug in the bottom of the elbow for draining. Turn the wheels all the way to the left to allow enough room for a collection pan. It holds less than 2 quarts so the pan doesn't need to be too large

Sounds like your drive belt may have came off or it needs to be replaced. Take the battery out from under the seat to see if belt is still around transaxle. Sometimes it will jump off when doing a lot of starting stopping
