Craftmans snow thrower

I have a 2 year old craftman snow thrower model #15A114 - 0342 8.5HP It ran good the first few times I used it. Now when I put it under a load it will die out and have to wait 15 to 20 minutes to restart it and then it might run for 5 to 10 minutes. I put a new carb. on and it ran good for a while then started to what it did before. Could it be the gas cap or coil thats causing the problem

Yep. could be either. Run it with the gas cap loose(tighten it, then back off half a turn). If it runs longer, then the vent is blocked. If not, sounds like the coil is heating up and you need to replace the coil.
