Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

The first thing to try is to clean off the ignitor electrodes which double as a flame sensor. Steel wool is best or a green ScotchBrite pad. You can use fine aluminum oxide sandpaper in a pinch. If that doesn't work check all your electrical connections. Beyond that you'll need a multi meter to do some voltage testing.
