I have to wait a bit and then it will start again. The burner will fire then after 5 second or so it will shut off again . Then it will do the same thing again
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It's the bottom burner only the broiler works just fine so I figure its the thermocouple

Are you sure it wouldn't be the thermocouple
Appliance Technician: Ray, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 month ago

there is no thermocouple on it. It;s possible the valve control could be doing that but its very rare. You can see if a wire terminal is loose on the control valve

Are you 100%sure that's the problem before I buy it
Appliance Technician: Ray, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 month ago

that;s the only thing it could be.. If it was the oven ignitor you would smell gas at times

Ok it fires up just fine . It just won't stay lit
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It keeps shutting of like if the thermocouple was bad
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I wasn't sure if it had one or not because I haven't torn into it yet. But the control board is easier so I'm good
Appliance Technician: Ray, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 month ago

its a possiblity it could be the ignitor but i really doubt. the relay on the board seems to be getting overheated and shut the burner off. the board is the thermostat/coupling
