I need the model number of your furnace. You can find it on the rating tag inside the blower compartment

I was able to get it to work, but the gas will not stay lit. It is a Rheem Classic 90
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I take off the panel and manually light it, but just a few seconds after I close the panel the gas goes out
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 2 years ago

That's the series not the model number. I need the model number on the rating tag.

I did go outside and remove the 2 foot of snow that had drifted around the gas pipe that goes into the house
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 2 years ago

Snow around the gas pipe makes no difference. Snow around the exhaust does. I can't help you until you give me the actual model number
