John Deere 455 lawnmower

Leo Messmer My serial number is M00454c040513
The mower randomly stops. I have read some of the posts and it stated the serial number would be helpful so I have included it . I have taken it to the local John Deere dealer a couple of times but the problem keeps recurring . I have pulled on the wires at the starter and they seem ok.
I don't remember when the transmission oil was changed last.
The dealer changed one of the safety switches the last time.
Please give me your suggestions on what to do in which order.
I was thinking about changing the transmission oil to start with.

jr need a bit more info to be of any help,

how is it stopping? is it stalling out? when your driving does it bog down before stopping or does it just quit? if its bogging down and then quitting you could be running on one cylinder, pull one side plug wire off and see if it starts, repeat on the other side, which ever side wont let the engine fire is the cylinder with an issue : could be the ignition coil, or wiring, could be a dead cylinder lots of things it could be

chances are if the dealership replaced a safety switch, there could be another one on the way out, there are a few in the system. I have seen many cases where the circuit board with malfunction, when it dies tap the circuit board on the right hand side of the machine and see if it will fire back up, if thats the case i would pin it to that board as they are a common failure. beyond that unless you have a technical manual to diagnose the circuitry, you wont have any luck repairing it.
