Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you replaced the coils and you're getting this response where the igniter glows on and off but the flame won't come on, I'm really sorry to say but the electronic valve itself will need to be replaced. The valve is not a cheap part at all I'm afraid which is why you replace the coils first in case the coils just need to be replaced. But since that didn't work, below is a link to the valve you'd need to order for your model. Just for reference. If you have a thermostat issue or anything like that, the igniter wouldn't glow.
