Toro Walkbehind mower stalls on hot days

Hello - I have a 6 HP Toro walkbehind self propelled mower. It runs fine on cooler days, but on hot days it will stall after about 10 minutes. After letting it rest a 1/2 hour or so it will restart, but then do the same thing. We took it to a dealer who ran it, on a cooler day, for hours & said it was fine and gave it back. Has anyone else run into this before?

Sounds like a bad coil. Check for spark when it dies. If none, replace the coil.
