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 your situation. What's the actual model number of your unit. It's on the rating tag inside the burner compartment.

The serial number is *****

You can't light this pilot with a match. It has electronic ignition.

Still there RIck?
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
ok so then how would I start it?
There is an on/of knob. I turned it off then back on,. but still smell the gas when I turn it back on.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
btw- the unit does power on.

If the power is on and the thermostat is tuned up then you have a malfunction. You'll need a multi-meter to troubleshoot this
