stove pilotless ignition not always working
« on: June 09, 2010, 12:21:46 AM »
the top 4 burners have pilotless ignition system.

usually the burners light within 10 seconds. lately i have experienced where
i can't get any of the burners to light, but if i wait for 20 minutes then they will light.

in the oven there is a bar that glows and then the flame lights within 10 seconds usually.
lately  i have experienced where the bar will glow but the flame does not light, but if
i wait for 20 minutes then it will light.

is there an explanation for this behavior?
should i replace some parts? if yes, let me know part names.
or is it this an indictator that the stove is dying and needs to be replaced soon?

please let me know your advice. thanks.
