Need help stopping item spawner script

I am not familiar with scripting.
I have an item spawner script that spawns the item I need however the spawner does not stop AND the items will spawn in the same spot multiple times. I need help stopping or disabling the script once the number of items I want to spawn has been reached and for those spawned items not to overlap.

This is the code I have so far that works flawlessly.

local spawns = workspace.ItemSpawns

local items = game.ReplicatedStorage.Items

local seconds = 3

local function chooseSpawn ()

local _spawn = spawns:GetChildren()[math.random(1,#spawns:GetChildren())]

return _spawn

end

local function chooseItem()

local item = items:GetChildren()[math.random(1,#items:GetChildren())]

return items

end

while wait (seconds) do

local _spawn = chooseSpawn()

local items = chooseItem()

local clone = items:Clone()

clone.Parent = workspace

clone.Corn.corng.CFrame = _spawn.CFrame * CFrame.new(0,5,0)

end

after adding the line “if clone is >= 7” the code stopped working entirely and giving the error, "ServerScriptService.SpawnerScript:20: Expected ‘then’ when parsing if statement, got ‘break’ "

local spawns = workspace.ItemSpawns
local items = game.ReplicatedStorage.Items
local clone = items:Clone()
local seconds = 3

local function chooseSpawn ()
	local _spawn = spawns:GetChildren()[math.random(1,#spawns:GetChildren())]
	
	return _spawn
end

local function chooseItem ()
	local item = items:GetChildren()[math.random(1,#items:GetChildren())]
	
	return items
end

while wait (seconds) do
	if clone is >= 7
		break
		
		else if clone < 7 do
			local _spawn = chooseSpawn()
			local items = chooseItem()

			clone.Parent = workspace
			clone.Corn.corng.CFrame = _spawn.CFrame * CFrame.new(0,5,0)	
			end
		end
	end
end

I would appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction of how to stop the spawner script and the items overlapping. Thank you.

replace the line "if clone is >= 7 "
with
if clone >= 7 then

Try this.

local spawns = workspace.ItemSpawns
local items = game.ReplicatedStorage.Items
local clone = items:Clone()
local clonevalue = 0
local seconds = 3

local function chooseSpawn ()
	local _spawn = spawns:GetChildren()[math.random(1,#spawns:GetChildren())]

	return _spawn
end

local function chooseItem ()
	local item = items:GetChildren()[math.random(1,#items:GetChildren())]
	return items
        clonevalue = clonevalue + 1
end

while wait (seconds) do
	if clonevalue >= 7 then
	end
	if clonevalue < 7 then
		local _spawn = chooseSpawn()
		local items = chooseItem()

		clone.Parent = workspace
		clone.Corn.corng.CFrame = _spawn.CFrame * CFrame.new(0,5,0)	
end
end

Sorry for the late reply, both your method and SelDraken’s methods work exactly the same in that they spawn the item in a new spot each time however which i really weird. Any idea how to get it to spawn more then one?
