Hello thejackal8975. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

First thing to do is verify all control panel settings are set correctly and the hot surface ignitor (HSI) is glowing. Chances are the HSI isn't glowing and needs to be replaced. Below link to the sticky note will provide all the additional help needed. Also reading the existing questions in the forum topic.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, downloadable repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the most likely possible problem may be. They will need the make, model and serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts and problem resolving matters. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs or services. Always check for gas leaks whenever moving the appliance and/or a service or repair includes any connection of a gas part.

It's always adviseable to clean the entire exhaust venting system every 2 years. Or during any dryer maintenance, connection, servicing and or repairs.
