Riding Mower cuts off and wont start

I have a John Deere Riding Mower (LT155). Yesterday, I was not able to start my mower. This Morning it cranked right up. After cutting for about 5 minutes, it cut off and would not start. It turns over fine. If I let it sit over night, it will start up, but not for long. Any Ideas?

RE: Riding Mower cuts off and wont start

Have you checked to see if you have spark when it shuts down? Have you checked to see if adding choke keeps it going longer at least? Have you tried dribbling gasoline directly into the carb throat? Gas tank cap vent clear?
