Just bought a house, gas furnace was working fine. gas

Customer Question
Just bought a house...

Just bought a house, gas furnace was working fine. gas company shut off gas, then came back and turned it back on after the confusion was cleared up. Since the gas has been back on, can't get the furnace to light. Gas hot water tank is working (we have gas) Induction motor doesn't start... nothing is happening at all. (Rheam Criterion II) We do have a light on the board flashing 4 times, pause, 4 times....

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the pilot light?

Thermostat is on, no pilot, it has an ignitor

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It's cold

Due to my current work load and responsibilities I may not be available for the live phone call but along the way, the website will automatically present the offer.Please note that there is an additional cost for the service and if a technician calls it may be a different technician. However we can continue here as long as needed .
