is not working properly. Any suggestion?
I'm not sure I'm following correctly. The direct spark ignitor (DSI) will attempt three cycles before going into lockout. However, you stated after that, it is lighting just after one click (which would be excellent)
If the ignitor is taking longer than usual, or is locking out after three unsuccessful cycles....then you may have a propane delivery problem...or
the ignitor electrode needs adjusting or is misaligned as Turbs pointed out. The gap should be 1/8".
