Furnace Help - Tappan SGUF 80 D 24 E7


Silly question. I am trying to light the pilot light on my furnace and just can't seem to find where to put the match. Does anybody know where the pilot light is on this model Tappan furnace?

If the gas valve has a thin copper wire(thermocouple) from it to the burner area and a knob with on/off/pilot positions then it has a pilot light. If not it probably is a newer furnace with a HSI (hot surface igniter) and no pilot light. Follow that wire to the pilot burner, Turn knob to pilot/hold down/light pilot with match/hold for 60 seconds and slowly release. If it goes out call a tech to replace thermocouple/clean pilot burner etc.

Thanks Yuri. I got her going. I just needed to keep the lighter on the pilot a bit longer and it finally fired up.
