Did you try cleaning the igniter? Have you tried using a match?  You might burn the crud out and get it to work.

Welcome to the forum
Did it work when you swapped the orifice?

Is the propane turned on completely? They turn off the propane when filling the tank and occasionally don't turn it back on completely.

Remove the propane line going to that burner and verify that it's clear. I don't see where it can be anything else.

Yes easy fixes are good especially before you spend a bunch of money to fix the wrong thing.
