Atwood Water Heater Propane Operation Problem

The Atwood Water Heater (Model GE 9 EXT W/PL) in my 2017 27' International FBQ works fine on electric but has a problem using propane. It seems like too much propane is allowed to accumulate before the igniter fires causing a pretty good flame to erupt from the location where the igniter lights the gas. I had the trailer in for a window replacement a few months ago at Colonial and they checked the water heater for this problem. They said they cleaned the unit up and performed a service on it, not sure what that covered. That did seem to solve the problem for a short period, but now experiencing the same issue while on our current trip. Any ideas on how to address this problem?

Atwood Water Heater Propane Operation Problem

I looked in the Atwood manual and do not see what you are referring to. Is there a circuit board somewhere in the system that you are referring to?
