We just bought a house with a Sears Homart Gas fired furnace, model # 867.761831. The instruction manual that I found here does not show the actual model we have. I and my brother in law have tried repeatedly to light the pilot light with no success. It burns on natural gas. We've made sure the manual gas valve is open, put the pilot valve on pilot to light it, nothing. I've looked through the whole furnace, have not found a reset button or anything of that type. With it becoming colder here, we need to get this thing going.

My question is, does anyone else still have this type of furnace? Buying a new furnace at the moment is not feasible... ugh!! The furnace itself looks very well cared for.
