Built in 1973 - wood and cement sides

If it;s safe or will call Bottini who insrtalled the heater - think it's the ignitor

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 brand and model number of your heater?

no = let's see if it worth $37 first

I"m assuming the fan runs, since you smell gas that would point to an igniter issue. Are you comfortable pulling the igniter and checking it out? Do you have a multi-meter?
