My push mower works great an hour than sputters and shuts

Customer Question

My push mower works great for about an hour than sputters and shuts off like it's starving for fuel. What should I do to fix this?

How long before it will restart?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Long enough to shut off again.

Long enough to check for spark? If it has spark, it has to lose fuel, is the fuel cap venting?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Not sure I will check. I first need to find the spark plug. It's hidden from sight.
