Honda garden tiller stops running when hot

We have a small Honda garden tiller (Harmony FG100). On ocaission, it will stop running when warm or hot. What would cause this? Air filter is clean, gas is full.

Hello Biederboat!

Check for spark at the spark plug when it quits. (assuming it doesn't start right back up). If none, then you have ignition problems, likely a bad coil. Also, try loosening the fuel cap just a bit when it quits...could be a clogged vent in the cap allowing the tank to develop a vacuum.
