Dryer heat turns off after about 5 mins. and does not come back on

Kenmore Dryer, Model 110.70802990.
Flame goes out after about 5 Mins. running, and does not come back on. I opened the front cabinet and checked the Radiant Sensor with multimeter and it has continuity. Replaced both the Thermostat and the Thermostat Internal Bias. After the flame shuts off sometimes you can stop the dryer and restart and it will get hot again then flame goes out and does not restart, gets completely cold. Sometimes you have too wait for the dryer to cool off then restart and it will heat up again, Then flame goes off and does not refire after cooling down.

Having a broken appliance we count on daily must be really frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I suggest you set service with a Sears technician so they can fix this for you. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!
