I have a kenmore series 800 dryer. At start up the flame ignites runs for about 10 seconds then turns off. About 60 seconds later it lights back up and turns off the flame after about 5 seconds. Replaced the high Limit Thermostat, Gas Valve Solenoid, and Flame sensor. Out of ideas.

Hi,

Is the dryer apart or have any panals off or is it all together?
Tried ( test only ) with the vent removed/off from the dryer?

Took the exhaust off the back and ran the dryer and flame ran longer. Cleaned exhaust vent of various lint and its working much better now.
