Tyler. I have a DCS range and like many, one of the burners

Customer Question

Good evening Tyler. I have a DCS range and like many, one of the burners won't stop clicking. It started when I did a deep cleaning with Oxy clean, so I am sure there is hardened powder somewhere. However, I have cleaned all of the elements many times, as well as the igniter (using stainless steel toothbrush and rubbing alcohol). If I hold a flame from a lighter to the igniter, it stops clicking. I noticed that all the other burners have 2 levels of flame - the primary heating flame and an underlying dull flame that comes in contact with the igniter. This burner only has the primary flame, but I can't figure out what is holding the underlying flame back. I have taken off the hex nut and cleaned every hole and orifice, but can't figure out where there could be a blockage
