Normal operation that flame stays on 30 seconds and shuts down then it kicks back on with demand. The gas does NOT stay on continously or the clothes would burn up. Everthing is working fine except those coils are getting hot and quiting. Wait a long time and it will work of for 15 more minutes. Your problem is a very common failure on these dryers. Replace those coils.

Well,  I put the coils on this morning.  It has made it through one load of clothes.  It appears that was the problem.  Thanks everybody for your help I really appreciate it.
