craftmans brigga and stratton 6.5 mower

hi i bought this mower used but it looked to be in great shape. My husband has replaced the air fliter and never loked pretty new on the thing but it starts right up and has trouble to stay running. He has cleaned the carburetor and he has cleaned the spark plug but it still to seems to die after running for awhile. He is thinking there is fule problem but we are unsure-or maybe a vaccuum issue I have no idea except this is a becoming a real pain

any info would be helpful

Hello shannon!

How long does it run before it dies? Does it start right back up? Did it run at all before he cleaned the carb? Sounds like it might need a better carb cleaning, but not sure until I know the answers to the previous questions.
