Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am APPLIANCE-HVAC GURU a very experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.

Please allow time for me to respond, sometimes I get the questions or responses late so please be patient as I have no control over the site issues. NOTE, I have nothing to do with your payment to the site and did not receive that money.

Or is the inducer motor coming on at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Inducer motor is coming on the igniter is not glowing.
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK check and see if the ignitor is broken or if you have a volt meter see if there is power to the ignitor across the two wires to the ignitor. The ignitor may be broken and bad.

We discovered the igniter is broken. We will have to find a replacement part tomorrow. Thanks.
