Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

good evening, if this igniter is glowing but theres no flame the issue is the gas valve coils. Gas Valve Solenoid 279834 Main Product Viewthese coils are what opens the valve, they get weak and fail. these are inexpensive and easy to install. you can fix this yourself . heres a link to the parts. they are around $22.00, there's also a video at the same link to show you how to replace them. thanks and have a great night, Bryan
