When it quits, you have spark at the plug? How long before it will restart?
If no spark, you have a bad ignition coil. If you have spark, check the fuel solenoid in the base of the carburetor, it has to stay open as long as the key is on, and has to have 12 volts to work.
This is the Briggs single cylinder,, OHV engine. Intex. Here is manual link.
Fuel starvation will be lack of fuel from the tank/and fuel pump, if it has a pump. May be gravity feed to carb. Or the carburetor is not letting fuel through the main jet. The solenoid in the carburetor plugs main jet when it is closed.
