Albert, A lot of lawn mowers have a problem with the gas cap not venting properly and will quit running after running a few minutes as you described, try running with cap removed or very loose( be-careful of splashing fuel).

Other things that could cause this issue are bad fuel, weak/colapsed/kinked fuel line, faulty spark plug, faulty ignition/coil, oil over full, clogged air filter, plugged/dirty carburetor, worn engine parts internal rings/valves/etc.
