Inconsistent heat in gas dryer

I have an 11-year-old GE dryer that is not consistently heating. Sometimes we turn it on and it works fine. Other times we turn it on and the heat doesn't come on, requiring we re-start the dryer several times until we can hear the pilot ignite. We clean out the lint trap after every use and have cleaned the vent as well, but the problem still exists. Suggestions? Thank you
