Question Craftsman mower with B&S engine dies every 5-10min

This is a Craftsman self-propelled mower with 6hp Gold B&S engine. It would run for about 10min then die. The engine then has to be primed before it can be started again, then it'll stay running for another 10-15min or so. This is weird! Has anyone seen this problem before? Thanks.
