    Is there power to the unit?
    What model is it?
    Plug something - a lamp, fan - some kind of small
    appliance into the receptacle underneath, if there IS one...
    If not, is there a battery powered igniter?
    Again, what model is it?

    What does the ignitor button look like, is it a round red or black button (not the on/off/pilot) and when you push it in there is some resistance to it?

    The other style runs off a 9v battery and I think automatically sparks when you hold in the pilot knob on the valve. Battery could be dead.

    Heat n Glo is NOT a model. It's a manufacturer of gas fireplaces & stoves
    (& other hearth units, as well).
    Is your unit a fire place?
    If it is, there's a silver sticker on the bottom right of the
    base of the unit - in the valve cavity.
    What MODEL is it?

    Is there a click when you push the button on the piezo??
    If there isn't, replace the piezo.
    If the IS, check to see if the wire coming out of the back
    of the piezo & that the wire sheathing is in good shape,
    i.e. - no bare spots where it could be grounding out & directing the
    spark to a spot other than the igniter near the pilot hood...

    That is for a fireplace, yours has the same kind of components, just maybe not in the exact same locations.

    If you cannot figure it out after looking through that, you should have someone come service it for you.
