How did you check power to the igniter? What was the reading? Did you check the igniter for continuity?

I checked power with a voltage meter. The meter indicated 120v. I have checked continuity now, however I assumed continuity was ok with 120v at the valve.

I'm afraid I did not get it clear. Have you disconnect the igniter and checked it for continuity?

If there is 120 VAC to the igniter while the control calls for heat, and the igniter has continuity then it must glow.

Might be there is something wrong with the tests you performed or their descriptions you posted.

I don't think I have performed the test wrong. I think I have a bad igniter. However, Appliance parts pros will not replace it without your approval. However, I am willing to try something different if you give me a suggestion.

What is the exact resistance reading of the igniter?

I'm not sure how to read resistance,I have cheap multitester with 1k ohms.the reading is between 0 and 1, with 5 divisions between 0 and 1. The needle reads between the first and second division.I would call it .30

Sounds like the reading is about 300 Ohms which is good.

Can you unplug the igniter wires and retest the voltage?
