Strange. Pull the plug and place it in the ignitor. It shold glow nice and orange. If not, and your plugs are good, try another ignitor. It's always good to have one that uses a refular alkaline battery just in case.

Check with a volt meter and make sure you are getting voltage to the igniter. Something could be wrong with it.
