Toro walk behind mower. Starts, runs, turn it off then won't start

I am having a weird problem with my Toro 6.5hp self-propel mower.

It starts fine (push the choke 3 times then pull the chord), runs fine.

But then if I use if for a few minutes and then turn it off, it won't start again. I leave it for 30 minutes or so and then it starts fine again.

Any ideas what's going on?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the gas cap vent is plugged. Remove the gas cap, then reinstall when trying to restart. If it starts, then clean the gas cap.
