Replace the igniter even if it is glowing, this will repair your problem, you may think that it is glowing and should work, however the amperage needed to open the safety valve is not enough and it will just glow or be dead completely, the part number you need is WB2X9154, You can order the parts you need from the following places,,, or, all of these places offer easy returns and reasonable prices for their items.
