While the flares were sealed as a part of the manufacturing process, it appeared that excess moisture in the production environment may have caused the magnesium pellets in the igniters
to oxidize to the point at which ignition of the grain was compromised.
The new igniter

The electric fuse igniter

and flame sensor are located inside a sealed combustion chamber and aren't usually visible.
The dispenser is part of the effort by Sandia and EG&G to automate the entire fabrication process for actuators and igniters

Then when it's time to start up again, fog oil is blown onto the igniter
