Hi .. if this is a brand new heater, then you probably need to have the gas line bled. This means getting all the air out of the gas line feeding the burner. This can be done by constantly trying to light the burner or poilot . or it can be bled down by a HVAC tech.

Make sure propane is on and getting to your stove burners ok, first, then try switching it back on. If it fails to ignite, shut switch off and try a couple of times, if still no ignition, get back to me.

You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

You are correct, there should be no flame after it shuts off. Pull the + wire off at contacts as well and see if flame remains, if it does, the gas valve is faulty (leaking by) and should be replaced.

Very simple, do you have a 12 volt light tester, or multimeter?
First thing to try is to remove the thermal cut-off from circuit and try it. That's the little diode like thing inside the plastic sleeve below pressure relief valve. Remove it from the circuit and hook female spade from end, directly to thermostat where other end was before. If that does it, replace thermal cut-off.
If not, start testing for 12 volts when trying to ignite, from one side of thermostat, then over to ECO, or just go directly to gas control connection. If 12 volts getting to gas control, thermostat and ECO are o.k.
Are you getting spark at electrode?
