#66962 Whirlpool SF380LEKQ oven w/ DSI won't stay lit

After 10 days the new burner is working well, so I'm calling it a solved problem.  Apparently the original design was marginal.  The new one sparks up immediately.  It's apparent when you see the design change:

The old burner had only four gas ports near the igniter electrode and the igniter shield has only minimal air holes (more solid):



The new burner has eight igniter gas ports and the shield has much more open area:


So with more fuel and air supply, the burner lights more reliably.
