there are several issues that can cause this most common is the vent restricted backing up heat in the dryer if its as old as you say you need to check the whole vent system it has to be 4inches dia all the way if its mashed or drooping under the house its restricted if its folded over or mashed behind the dryer its restricted the thermal limiter is a safety thermostat it opens about 300 degrees to prevent fire the dryer has three thermostats an operating thermostat a safety thermostat and the thermal limiter if the operating thermostat fails then the safety thermostat takes over and cycles on about 165 on and off if both thermostats fail then the thermal limiter opens about 220-300 depending and it doesn't reset and cuts all the power to the dryer till a tech can check everything i just told you about so if your vent is clear and the best way to vent is 4inch pvc drain pipe 90 it up behind the drier then connect with a short peice of metel vent then just replace all three thermostats

If ignitor glows then clicks off, and process repeats itself every few minutes it sounds like either you have no gas going to valve or more likely one of the burner solenoid coils on top of valve is shorted out. The coils usually come as a kit and are inexpensive. They are held in place by a bracket with 2 screws.

Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.
