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. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Have you checked the ignitor to see if it is glowing or broken?

where I'm I looking to see the glow plug
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

You would need to remove the top and look down to the right with the lights off to see if you can see anything glow. If not you need to remove the front on the unit and check the lower thermal reset on the burner housing. That often trips causing that issue. It is on the bottom of the burner tube when you have the front off and has a button on it that you can press.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
