They normally have a thermal cut out on the rear, behind a small cover or rubber area. Reset this by pushing it in. You have probably let it get too hot at some point by not keeping the filter cleaned often enough, or the outlet hose getting blocked. If there is not a reset, or it doesn't resolve the problem, it may be a fault with the hetaer element. These are not normally difficult to replace, just normally difficult to get to!

Could be a bad hi limit thermostat. Could be a bad glowbar ignitor. Check the glowbar ignitor at the gas valve, is it glowing bright orange/red? If not. Replace the ignitor.
