the problem is with the igniter.
I cannot see your response
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 7 months ago

I apologize I am not sure why your having trouble seeing my response. If the ignitor is wanting to light intermittently, it could mean the ignitor is going bad or the flame sensor is dirty. What is the model number of your appliance your having this trouble with?

It’s an Italian made Ftatelli, 5 flames. I cannot find the model #
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 7 months ago

so I would honestly say the ignitor is going bad and is going to need to be replaced. Without a model number I can not walk you through this or suggest the part to replace it. Do you intend on doing this job yourself or having someone come out to fix it?

I was hoping to do it myself. Your answer doesn’t really help me
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 7 months ago

I will open this up to other experts who may be able to assist you without a model number. You will receive an email once someone new takes over the question.
