If your still not getting any gas through,then something is stopping it.
Sounds like the gas valve is staying closed.Make sure you have 24 volts to the gas vavle when trying to lite.

It is confirmed by you that therre is no gas flow .
So this is the critical missing link to the fault.
We must trace the flow of the gas from the front regulator valve . So using a good air jet, if you can get compressed air to blow into the pipes , it will be helpful. so open the gas inlet and check flow till the valve. Now check the flow from the valve to the ovenflow pipe.
if there is no air coming through use a thin wire to puch in for removing dirt / rust.Blown it out.
Check if the nozzle jet is blocked in the valve assembly through which the gas comes in. USe a thin needle to clean the jet.
Once you have established a clean flow of air , put back all the removed parts and connect the gas.
It must work for sure..

It doesn't light up because the gas doesn't arrive at the oven's burners. On this model, like in many others, you need to press on the knob for some time after you light it, otherwise the safety valve will keep the gas flow shut. If you have replaced the entire valve and still get the same result then check the air-fuel mixture at the burners inside the oven, maybe it's off.

Certain gas valves have a shutoff lever on them to cut the gas off to the oven only, while still allowing gas to the stove top burners. This small lever should be sticking straight up or out. Check to see if yours has one and see if that's the problem. If not, let me know and we'll dig deeper. It may be a problem with your oven safety valve. It is usually located in the bottom rear of the oven. It is silver and positioned below the burner tube, with the oven orifice threaded on top of it, in the mouth of the burner tube. Using the handle of a large screwdriver or wrench, try tapping on it while the ignitor is on & see if it lights the burner. Sometimes they stick internally or just go bad and need to be replaced.
