I have searched the forum and have not found this problem. My pilot stays lit, but when turning the stove on I have to turn the flame to high and then it takes 20-30 seconds for it to ignite. Previously,it didn't matter what position the flame was in. I also have a build up of soot on the glass in front of the pilot, which is on the right side. I was thinking to have the entire pilot assembly replaced, but after going through my manual, I am concerned there could be an issue with the air shutter. Should I clean inside and see if there is a change? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated before I make a service call.
