This made me a little nervous so I hit cancel to stp the gas and now I don't know what to try next. Any suggestions?
You're getting a delayed ignition or the new igniter was not installed properly. Once you program a cycle,and temperature, the control supplies 120 VAC to the igniter, It starts to glow, when the igniter glows"white hot" it produces a 3.2 to 3.6 amp draw or 3.2 to 3.6 VAC to the terminals on the safety valve. When the proper electrical requirements are met, the bi metal switch in the safety valve opens and releases the gas for ignition and burn. Check and make sure there are no loose wiring connections, the openings on the burner(s) are clean and the igniter and mount are not bent or deformed, if both igniters are glowing "white hot".
