My igniter doesn't glow. Igniter is good. Checked all connections. Can't find any thermo fuses. Found a thermostat l300 Ge part # ap 2042686. Can this be my problem? Is there any way to test it? Or what else could it be? THANKS

Be SURE to NOT TOUCH the igniter with your fingers...the oil from your body will cause a hot spot and burn out the igniter. Good Luck!
