Hi the problem here is the safety valve coils. They have developed a short. As the dryer heats up the coils short and then when cool down they work again. You will need to replace the coils. These can be located on top of the gas valve. Click HERE for the replacement part. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Mike
