You said you can not see the spark. Have you tried it in the dark? sometimes it is too hard to see in the light.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I did
Expert:  WCohn replied 6 months ago.

And you couldn't see it?

I could not see it at all
Expert:  WCohn replied 6 months ago.

Okay I would say you have a bad igniter.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
What do I do....
Expert:  WCohn replied 6 months ago.

Do you need it lit tonight? If so you can light it by hand, but if it can wait I would have a pro replace the igniter.
