Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of you situation.

If the draft inducer (small fan on the front) doesn't work nothing else will happen. It's the first thing that needs to start up and create a draft before the burners will fire up. Is the inducer motor hot to the touch?

Do you have a multi meter?

I do not

That limits what we can do to trouble shoot this. There are a coule things we can try without one. Do you want to give it a go? If so you'll have to jump the R & W terminals on the furnace thermostat terminal strip. Do you know where that is?
