There was a design problem with another manufacturers ignition syment that used a hot surface ignitor. I wont mention their name but the proble occured because the igitor got too hot due to the location of the hot surface igitor in relation to the burner flame. The fix ended up being that a special bracket was made to put the ignitor further away from the burner opening, this put it into a lower temperature range. The amperage problem may be due to excessive heat.
