Sears Homart Automatic heating (furnace probably from 60's)
I have a furnace that has been working fine. It proably isn't as efficientAS A MODERN ONE HOWEVER In the winter the gas bill is never higher than $60.00 per month (there is a pilot light and the house has gas oven/stove and gas dryer. Usually around $30,00 in cooler months, so repairing this is definitly an option. It has stopped. What can I problem solve? ELECTRIC MOTOR? OR? (gas polot is still on-maybe I'll change to pilotless electric ignition?) ANY suggestions welcome as soon as possible!!!!!
It's not the thermostat
Thank you:thumbup:

Unfortunately, and with all due respect, if you have to ask you probably are not is a position to mess with a gas furnace yourself. You need to pay the $100-or-so and have a reputable HVAC company come in and fix it for you.

Do you have a thermocouple, or a thermopile?

Could be the gas valve.
Or perhaps a bad transformer.
Or a blown fuse.
Or someone turned off the emergency switch.
