When I start the dryer, it heats right up, but only stays hot for anywhere between 5-15 min. with a meat thermometer in the exhaust tube, I'm reaching ~140 deg F. then I lose heat. With the kick-panel off, the flame goes out, and a couple of minutes later, the igniter glows bright, but the flame doesn't kick in. This continues every couple of minutes.

I ran the diagnostics on the moisture sensor, thermistor and thermal fuse. All checked OK. I tried to check the high-limit thermostat, but with very little clearance, I couldn't get the wires off to touch the volt-meter probes to the thermostat tabs.

If I let the dryer sit for 10 minutes, it starts just fine with heat again, but the process above repeats.

Any suggestions on where to go from here? I figure I need to get back in and check that high-limit t'stat. Is it possible that it would work properly at room temp or low temps, and then fail at elevated temperatures?

Thank you,

Jeff

Bad coils on the gas valve will do that.

from what I read at other sites its bad coils or blocked vent
you can test coils with ohmmeter,unplug first

and take vent off first to try it out
