    Take some microamp

    readings during that 15 seconds it stays on. You should have between 2 to 10 microamps, 3 to 5 is the norm. Even though you have replaced the sensor make sure it is positioned correctly in relation to the burner. It should be about a 1/2" to 1/4" above the burner and at least 3/4" into the flame. Make sure the burner nearest to the sensor is lighting completely and is not blowing by the sensing rod, if it is then adjust the primary air to the burner to stabilize it.
