It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. In your machine, it appears Amana doesn't sell the coils as a separate item and the whole valve needs to be replaced. The part number is Y504091.
Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.
Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.
At front, remove 2 screws near floor at the bottom of the lower front panel. Pull bottom of panel toward you and down. The gas valve should now be accessible on the left. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.
Reverse process to re-assemble.

Hi there! The only place that will sell Brunton Helios parts is Brunton itself. You can get in touch with them through numbers on this page -> http://www.bruntonoutdoor.com/contact.php. They may not support the product any more, as it is legacy. I would try contacting them first, and then check out second hand stores and pawn shops for a new one. Good luck! Alex

The problem you're having is related to the OPD Valve in the Propane Tank. But, it is solvable by following the instructions below.
1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.
If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.
