stops after about 15 min

HI, I have a Sears mower with a Kohler CV15S-41567 engine. The mower starts and runs for about 15 min then it just cuts off. I have found that there is not spark after this. Someone told me to change the ignition switch but that did not help. I am not a small engine expert but I am thinking it is something breaking down when it gets hot. Is there a coil or magneta or something like that, that could be going bad when hot? If so where do I get one of those?

It's probably the ignition module and not the switch thats causing your problem. Kohler part # 12 584 04-S should be the one for your engine. Check with your local Kohler dealer, or you can also obtain from Sears.
