rv stove igniter doesnt click as fast as it used to

TTs only a year and a half old but weve camped a good amount in it (20+times). The spark igniter used to click I would say probably two times a second and now the last couple of camping trips it clicks maybe one time in 3 or 4 seconds so its a huge difference. It still lights the oven and stove but its just strange that it would change so drastic. Anyone else experience this type of thing

Does it have a battery? If so, is it weak?

Pull the stove top and check the wiring for the spark it may be shorting out along the way . check it to all burners common problem

From what I gather, your stove has electronic ignition. Chances are you have a button on your stove that looks like the one in the below picture? If you unscrew the silver portion you will find a AA battery. Try replacing that battery.

Yep... needs a new battery if push button as in the photo.

Others that you push, only 'click/spark' once per push regardless.

Same with the ones you turn. One spark per click.
