A word of caution; never stick anything into the orifice when cleaning it. Enlarging that orifice even a micron will result in unreliable operation. Us a can of compressed air only to clean it.
Another thing to check is the solenoid valve itself. There is no feedback circuit to tell the fridge that the valve opened.
The solenoid could be corroded inside. Try tapping on it with a screwdriver handle while the igniter is snapping.
