    Heatilator ND3933I gas fireplace - signs of life but no fire.

    I've got some sign of life on my gas fireplace but no ignition, just a glow under the logs. The only thing I know for sure to do is buff the flame sensor, which I have done, and still no ignition. As far as I can tell, all gas lines are turned on. Any thoughts?
