The DSI control board will allow 3 start attempts before lockout.
There is a 15 second propane flush before DSI spark. It will take time for the "Flame Rod" to detect the ignition. If it does all is well and the red light will go out. If not, the red light stays on and 6.8 seconds later and another flush/DSI cycle will start again. This will happen 3 times and can take about 2 minutes to complete all 3 attempts.
While "a minute or so" and 2 minutes sounds like "picking nits"; stand in front of that panel waiting for the light to go out with a stop watch.
It can seem like forever.
