Question about John Deere Garden
Although Jay Plesset is wrong about the alternator powering the ignition system you won't be able to run it without the magnets and the alternator due fact the electric PTO will quickly drain your battery as you no longer will providing the charging of the system.
Now there is a pair of magnets that operates the magneto but they cast into the flywheel and I have never had them to come loose or break so I am assuming that you are referring to the ones inside the flywheel.

You have a defective ignation coil. When the engine gets hot, the winding in the coil opens and the engine stops. After it cools down, it will again make contact and start again. If you don't know where the coil is, follow the wire from the spark plug. The spark plug wire is attached to the coil from the factory. It's easy to replace with a 1/4 inch socket set. Set the magnet to coil gap with a standard business card.

Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.
