This is a tricky question. The igniter and the thermostat are the most probable causes but since they were replaced we can rule them out. Other possibilities are the high limit switch or a relay switch. Because it happened after the power went out, it's possible that something shorted out. You'll probably need a heating professional to solve this problem.
