Could be the gas valve?

Do you hear the gas valve come on at all? If not it could be the gas valve. Usually the flame sensor produces an intermittent problem where sometimes the unit works and sometimes not. If it were the sensor, you would see the gas come on then shut off again. Sound like the gas valve is not operating. Is the ignitor producing a good spark?
