Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.
The diode is not causing that issue. You likely have a bad door switch there are three. Check the top and bottom ones. One is likely bad.

Yes the door latch switches
You have to take the switches out and test them with an ohm meter like the video shows for continuity when the switches are depressed/
Is the gas valve getting power to it can you check for 24 volts across the wires to it?
That was not meant for you, I have opted out to see if another expert can assist you in this as I am going offline.

Replaciing the HV diode
Disconnect from the electric supply. Remove casing.Locate item 35 the high voltage capacitor. The HV diode (36) is connected to one of the two terminals of this capacitor and then connected to the metal chassis. Remove and replace old with new. Job done
Perhaps you need to understand this, manufacturers of appliances do not give out information to the general public with regard to how to repair their appliances. Two reasons, firstly it could lead them to a legal claim later if you electrocute yourself and secondly it undermines their own service network. We engineers take years to both be trained and also to pick up the tricks of the trade. I have told you how to replace the diode in my post above, I enclosed a diagram so that you could see where the items were so you could subsequently identify them and change them accordingly. With regard to the switches, the video that my college posted gives you all the information that you need to test the switches out also. I am assuming that you are not familiar with test equipment ie the use of a standard multimeter, if not I would suggest that you do a bit of research on how then work then you should be able to locate and test the switches accordingly. If it were me I would change the diode first and then if that didnt work move on to the switches. If you have a multimeter and are unsure of how to use it come back to me and we can resolve that for you too.
I suggest that you go back up the page and select the 'CLICK ME' left by my college - that shows you how to check the switches. I totally agree there is no limit to what questions you can ask. However as an expert of 30 years in this field I have a duty of care to ensure that I am happy that you are competent to carry out any task that I advise you on and do not put yourself in danger. So far you have not given me any indication that you can follow the most basic of engineering instructions. Now either you want my help or you want your money back. So far I haven't received a cent for the time I have put in trying to help you. If you would like me to opt out of this question I will be happy to do so.
Have you found the High Voltage Capacitor?
