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?
