Kind of curious though as what the problem is with the old one. I do my own repairs and this one stumped me.
The gas only comes on intermittently. I can see the igniter glowing but most of the time, there is no gas present.
Sometimes it will ignite but after a few minutes goes out again.
The timer and thermal breakers all check ok. I'm thinking it must be the solenoid that actually turns the gas on.
I did not think it worth investigating because half the time the drum sticks...I got my $400 worth.
