Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

Do you have power to the gas valve when the ignitor is on?

OK if it is not lighting make sure the orifices are clean and make sure you have gas to the unit. If so replace the valve it is bad and would be a common issue.

If you get no gas out of the orifices and have power to the valve replace the valve.
