I have cleaned out vents and was getting no orange glow.  Changed out igniter and thermostat.  Now I am getting the orange glow but will not heat up.  Any suggestions please.

Check #38 Cut-Off Thermostat and #53 Thermal Fuse in the Bulkhead Diagram.

Unplug the wires and put your ohm meter across the leads. If they are good it will be a 0 resistance. If one is bad you will get no reading on your ohm meter.

This video will show you how to test a thermo fuse.

The coils change in resistance and fade when old. Making it very hard to diagnose. Change them coils.

I believe you are correct, but they are easy enough to check if you have a meter in your hand anyway.

Checking to see if you have power to the coils is a great idea. If you have power to the coils and they don't open the gas valve then replace the coils.
