Hi zmansgirl,

If it's within warranty, I'd exercise that and get it fixed.

Usually, if it appears to run, but isn't heating, the magneto has gone bad. It's not a cheap part, and not really a DIY (do-it-yourself) operation.

Even if not within warranty, I'd have an authorized service center do the job. They should have a list of authorized outlets with your manual and other literature.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon
