Craftsman Riding Mower won't start and stay running

I have a Craftsman 917.288031 riding mower with Briggs and Stratton engine (model 31G777, type 0806-B1). It stalled while mowing the lawn and would not restart. I have drained all gas from tank and Bowl Float under carb. I added new gas and still no luck. I installed new gas filter, new spark plug and air filter, no luck. I checked compression by putting my finger over spark plug hole and it blew on my finger so compression was good. I confirmed the Fuel solenoid (699915) is working and it does pull down when IGN is on and push up when IGN is off so it is OK. It has restarted once or twice since it first stalled but sounds very poor runnig and stalls after about 30 seconds. Any ideas on what I should try next?
