If you have replace the valve and verified that the orifice is clear, then the only logical place for the gas to be blocked up will be the burner bracket and tubing assembly going to the center burner.

The new valve needs to be adjusted. Did you make sure the orifice was the same length as the old one?

See the end of this burner valve has a nut on it. That is the adjustment on most gas valves. One end is the knob end the other end is the orifice adjustment. Most of them come turned all the way in for LP gas it must be adjusted out for natural. Do this by setting the old valve beside the new one and making them both have the same length to start then tweak it if necessary. Don't have the old valve no more? Their are more valves on the stove.
