Hi. If the igniter stays on, you have a bad flame sensor.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
The flame sensor is on the side of the burner tube. The flame spreader opens and sends power to open the coils.

ok. is there a way to test the flame sensor with a ohm meter. im a diesel tech by trade so i know how to use it. should it show open and the when iginitor lights up see a diff in reading
I do it by connecting wires from flame sensor together. When igniter glows for 10 15 seconds, pull wires apart. Valve should open. Just don’t touch anything with wires.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Can’t ohm it with power going to it.
