Question about Garden
The fuel filter is in the gas tank on the big fuel line. You can use a piece of wire with a small hook to pull the line and filter to the tank opening. These filters are available from small engine repair shops.

I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crackor split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

Sounds too lean.
Can you cover the air intake with your hand 90% or use the choke a bit and then load the engine to see if it runs better?
If you ever find a carb with manual high and low mixture adjustments that will fit yours......put it on and keep it on.
You can usually get then from older tractors.

First thing to do is check and repair charging system. They are/could be related problems in that there is an electric fuel shut off solenoid on the carburetor and if the battery is going dead, it could be cutting off the fuel flow. I wouldn't worry about the spark plug or cleaning the carburetor just yet.
Put a meter on the battery terminals, run the engine at full speed and check the voltage, If you are not getting around 13,5 volts going back to the battery, repair/replace the charging system. If it is less than 2 years old, it should still be under warranty so you might want to check with your dealer. I am guessing that it is a B&S 23 HP and replacing the alternator can be expensive and time consuming
