Question about Craftsman Garden
If the saw is overheating, blow out the engine case with compressed air to rid it of sawdust/dirt accumulation. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler, for plugging. Does the saw 4-stroke at speed when running free, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting? If not, adjust the H jet needle CCW somewhat until the previous occurs. If the engine seems to be about normal temperature when it quits, try a fresh spark plug gapped at 0.020". If still no help, then suspect the ignition module is failing from heat. Remove the left side case to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Change out the module by removing the mounting screws, the plug-in wiring, and fish out the plug wire from the case. Install the new module using a thin business card for a gap gauge--turn the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert the gauge, and allow the module poles to contact the magnets, then tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn while checking the pole gap to make sure that it doesn't close up further. Hope this helps!

If you mean that it starts fine when cold, but if you stop & turn off the engine (to to pop into a shop for example) then try to restart and get absolutely no turning over, then you need to replace your battery. It has a short or crack which is expanding when hot creating your problem.

Clean the air filter and check that the choke is operating correctly.
