Instructions for fixing the choke on a Craftsman LT-1000 lawn tra

I have a Craftsman LT-1000 lawn tractor. After 10 minutes of running, the tractor stops running. Let it sit for 15 minutes and it will run for another 10 minutes. The tractor coughs prior to shutting down.

I suspect the carb is sticking. Are their instructions on how to fix this?

I have MS and I need the tractor each week, this is becoming a big problem!

I have been hearing alot of this problem. Well it is gravity flow. I just bought a 2002 lt1000 17 hp without a carb the guy was having the same problem so he sent the carb away to get checked out and low and behold it got lost. He waited the summer to see if it would show up but it did not. He got mad and bought a new bigger one. Any ways i am waiting on a new one. Now in my reading these problems i discovered that the fuel line coming out of the tank to the carb is lower. Might be somthing to look at. JIM

Look under the mower to see if the drive belt has come off or broke. It is the belt that runs from the bottom of the engine to the rear axle.
