John Deere x540 engine cut out

I recently purchased a used 2010 John Deere x540 garden tractor. The tractor runs great for about 30-45 minutes and then it cuts out. It won't restart for another 10-15 minutes after cutting out.
I used a spark tester after the engine cut out and verified that there is no spark.
I replaced both ignition coils. The tractor now seems to run for a bit longer before cutting out but the issue is still there.
I bypassed the seat switch just to test. Still no spark until the engine cools.
Anyone else run into this?
