Slamming the door makes the bimetal open the gas valve because the ignitor is weak. It should be real bright. If it is dim orange it is bad. If it won't pull 3.5 amps it is bad.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
