Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. Answer: That would be a bad gas coil set, replace this part on the unit and you will be good to go. They will work a couple times typically after the unit cools off, but once the unit starts to heat they fail.
