Hello, tell me please if the pilot light is robust or a bit whispy or worse, weak. I need to know how much of the flame sensor that the pilot light makes glow red.

We can go from there

Hello, click here for the gas valve manual

See page 7 for plug in connector, unplug and replug it a few times to burnish its contact pins of any oxide that may be present.

See page 9 for the pilot adjust, try adjusting the pilot one turn clock wise, tell me if that changes anything.

So far it looks like a bad solenoid or orifice in the gas valve.

We can go from there.

PS... in order to know what all those part numbers mean I have to first locate the old manuals for that unit, then look up the numbers... that can take hours if I am lucky enough to find the old manual.

Better is a verbal description of what part you changed.
