I'm sorry, but we still can't get the model number to register in the Sears Kenmore home page.
Either way,

Remove the wire harness connectors from the new gas valve coils, look at the terminals on the coils closely, there should be traces of scratches on the metal terminals, where the interior contacts in the wire harness connector attach on the terminals, if there are no scratches on any of the terminals, we dont have a good connection on the coils and the coil will not activate and release the gas. I there is gas to the valve and all the coils terminals have scratches, if the glow bar cycles off and on, but there is no gas released, there would have to be a mechanical failure in the valve body, and you'll need to replace the gas valve.

Thanks for allowing to assist you,
