Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

What you're describing sounds like delayed ignition. This is a potentially dangerous condition and it should be checked out by a Munchkin trained pro.
