Heat only working for few minutes then turns off on gas dryer

Sears Gas dryer model 11076832500 purchased July 2006
When we turn the dryer on, the heat kicks on for less than 5 minutes and will not come back on until I turn the dryer off for 1 hour. Then, when I turn it back on, the same thing happens again. The drum still turns but no heat. We converted the dryer to run on propane and have not had a problem years until now. If it is a thermostat or a sensor or a valve coil, is there a way to test them before ordering the new part?
Instructions on how to find and test / change those parts - is that on this website?
