dryer barely heating up

I have a gas dryer...kenmore, I think I've had the thermostat replaced once before for not heating up. A few weeks back I noticed it seemed like it was taking forever for clothes to dry...I pulled the dryer away from the wall and checked the vent. there was lint settled on the bottom of the exhaust tube thingy but not blocking it. Unless there is a blocked going from the all wall UP out to the roof. My vent exits up the wall and out through the roof. seems to be drying fine after that so I figured that was it.


Again yesterday I noticed the clothes taking FOREVER to dry. Well the dryer is lukewarm on high. Not sure it would be a venting issue. Not sure if I should have it looked at again or time to replace. It is probably 15+ years old.


Thoughts??
