If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.

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.

SOURCE: MAIN BURNER WILL NOT IGNITE
Any RV sales and service dealer can get parts for you, if they don't already have them in stock. Is the pilot staying on at all? If yes, what happens when you turn from pilot, to On? One easy thing to try is undo thermocouple (probe that sits above pilot flame) from gas valve (3/8" wrench) and clean the end of the thermocouple with fine steel wool, as well as spray some WD-40 into the hole it came out of, and give it a blast of compressed air after to clean it out as well. (protect your eyes) Then re-install the fitting and snug it up good, and try lighting again. You may get lucky that it's just corroded or dirty, and this may cure that.

Testimonial: "very good info except my description of the problem was not detail enough."
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?
