Duo-Therm Gas furnace won't start up


I bought a older mobile home 1980 detroiter and it has a duo-therm gas furnace.
The problem is it just quit working one day. The blower motor won't start and the thing doesn't seem to heat up when the thermostat is turned up.
Little info-
The pilot light is lit.
The blower motor was just replaced and the other motor in it was serviced before winter.

Duo-Therm Gas furnace won't start up


On a 32 year old furnace I'd start with a heat exchanger inspection before even taking the meter out of the tool bag. Something in the low voltage circuit is keeping it from working and you'll need to test the components one at a time. Got a meter and know how to use it?

Duo-Therm Gas furnace won't start up


Sadly all most all of my tools were lost when I moved, long story. I can get my hands on one and I am sure, but I don't know how to use one either. I am very inclined to learn however! Now that I am no longer a renter I've been trying to learn what I can on how to do home repair myself. I've bought a few home repair books too, but nothing dealing with furnaces yet.

*I can for sure get a hold of a meter. I just got off the phone with my mechanic friend.

Reset the system and got the pilot light going again, still nothing.
