    Hi Lee, and welcome to the forum.

    Have you checked to see if you have voltage to the ignitor during start-up? If the ignitor is clean, and theres voltage to it, (unless it's burned out), it should get hot. If no voltage to it, check on the control board to see if fuse is blown.

    I have a Travis Ind. service guide I can email to you if you want it....has flow charts for all kinds of problems.

    What year is the stove? Have you had it since it was new?

    I have sent you a PM.

    Very common for ignitors to go out the last 1 to 7 years shorter life for stoves like the travis stoves that shot off and on with thermostat because it is using the ignitor more.

    Until you get a new ignitor you can use the stove in manual mode (no stat) and light the stove with an approved firestarter and or a plumbers torch.
    it was not untill the past 7 years or so that stove DID not have ignitors and most stoves were lite manually
