You could have a weak ignitor. They need to usually ohm out under 100 ohms, about.

Then, depending on your reading, if say it is bad, it is bad.

But if it shows likely good, then either the ignitor may have been installed a little out of position, with a retrofit replacement at some time. Or you are not getting gas, which could be from something not letting gas through to the gas valve (obsturction or gas valve turned off inside or outside the house -unless of course you have other gas appliances that do work), or the gas valve is sticky(sometimes you can free it up if you rap on it say with butt end of screwdriver when it should be lighting up -but do other checks first to establish if power to gas valve and if you are getting gas to it), or the solenoid in it is bad, or you are not getting 24 volts to the gas valve, or the burner by the ignitor has some obstruction.

To test with voltmeter, see if when the valve should open, if you get 24 volts at the two main valve wires. You may actually want to disconnect them from the valve and actually test just the wires that way, so you are not fooled by some false reading/or flutter of reading numbers if you are using digital voltmeter. IF you do not get 24 volts to those wires, reverse which volmeter probe you put on each wire.

Not sure exactly what you mean? You bought the whole heating unit used? And the valve was stuck now? Does that mean you got it unstuck?
