This answer was rated:

I have a Toro Recycler Model 20950 bought in 2013 which starts well when cold but after mowing 2 or 3 bagfulls it will not restart until it has cooled for about 20 mins. It has had a new spark plug and the carb cleaned out by the local agent several times. I use normal auto petrol with a Briggs & Stratton 'Fuel Fit' additive.
The local agent has run out of ideas - what do I try next?

OK - a carb issue? but the agent has already cleaned this once & replaced the ignition coil. It almost seems as though there is an overheat sensor but the agent says no. What else can be done?
Hi its always possible you have a spark issue but usually that would be a constant , not when its hot or cold;-)
