We have trouble lighting the large burner, it lights

Customer Question

We have trouble lighting the large burner, it lights immediately and we know to keep holding down for some clicks, as with the other burners, but with the large one, hold down for 10 clicks lift of, flame goes out, do it again for about 10 more, same thing. I would say hold for about 30, you will get there, most annoying . Any clues
Thanks. Jill

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect you have an issue with a spark path to ground or a thermocouple is failing. Use sand paper to clean the electrode or the thermocouple. Any change after cleaning?
