That would be the access panel across the bottom of the front panel.

See the image below for help with this.

A restricted vent might cause the flame to shut off quickly but you say sometimes the flame doesn't come on at all.

The key question is finding out if the igniter is still glowing and shutting off.

If the flame is coming on but only staying on a short time then the vent might be the problem. If the flame works for a little bit but then stops coming on at all then the problem can be the gas valve or coils.

The thermal fuse is only a problem if it never heats.

Sometimes the flame will work the first 10-20 minutes then stop heating at all. This usually is caused by the coils or the valve.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem but reply with any additional details for further assistance.
