This issue is driving me nuts. I have been following numerous forums from other user issues with no fix. My dryer tarts and heats normally but runs cool after 2-3 min. So I checked all of the stats, thermal fuse, and the gas solenoids. I replaced the cycling stat, over temp stat, and thermal fuse. I cleaned everything and disassembled the dryer down to sheet metal. I checked the ohms on the gas solenoids and came up with an interesting find, either the repair book and wiring diagram that came with the dryer are wrong or my 1, 2, and 3 pin solenoid plug is wired incorrectly. When checking the ohms I found this: #1 & #3 have 569 ohms (book says 550 ohms), #1 & #2 have 1976 ohms (book says 1350 ohms), and #4 & #5 have 1305 ohms (book says 1300 ohms). Poles #4 & #5 check normal. In the wiring schematic the wire colors for poles #1 and #3 are reversed in comparison with the way my dryer is wired. It has run fine for years with no issues. As I stated previously, I have rung out all the wires between and on all the component's and this is the only abnormality I have found. My wife loves seeing her dryer in pieces every night but I love to tinker. Please help before she makes me buy another dryer. I did convert the dryer from natural gas to propane when I first installed it years ago.
