It was installed by the Propane dealer. I read the book last night and it agrees with you guys, 4 seconds for the burners to light. That's what the slowest one takes. It is a propane stove as the guy we bought it from brought it from up north to the park he moved to in Florida thinking they had propane. Turns out they had natural gas, so instead of converting it, he simply bought a new stove. I guess the only thing that is slower than normal is the oven. I timed it last night and it took 1 minute and 35 seconds to light.
