    amana trouble

    Got a amana that when it lights it fires off and then stops then lights again, all within a second, i am not losing power to gas valve nor am i losing manifold pressure, has a new ignitor, it makes you sit back when u are watching it. it is almost like the flames get sucked away from the burners for a split second.

    It's probably a problem with flame rectification or a grounding problem. Get a qualified tech out to diagnose and repair.

    So it's rolling out? Or lifting off?

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Get your manometer out, and check the pressure your switches are seeing.
