I just bought a house and had the gas turned on. My 4 y.o. Coleman hot air heater will not fire. When I turn up the thermostat, the blower starts, the igniter glows red but no ignition because no gas comes out. The heater just shuts down after a minute or so. Can anyone give me something simple to check before I incur more expenses?

Thanks for your help.

Make sure

gas valve is set to "ON",not pilot or off.If these prove true you should replace ignitor.It is the least expensive item to replace.PDF
