Make sure to purchase a thermostat that will operate on a millivolt system the old Honeywell t-87 would work but the new T-87 replacement ones do not work. make sure the wires are not touching each other at the connection points. Hope this helps.
Turn the unit off, then back on this should reset the fault. If it does not
go into heating mode make sure thermostat is turned all the way up.
If nothing still doesnt happen then you need to make sure a breaker is not tripped.
If the furnace starts,then a hot surface ignitort should glow, if it doesnt
either it is cracked or the induced draft blower didnt come on. If it did glow and the burners lit and shut off, then the flame sensor is dirty and needs to be cleaned
the pilot light always stays on, its designed to allow your heater to turn on by itself without you needing to light a match every time. if the pilot light is burning you have nothing to worry about. its when the pilot light goes out that a small amount of gas leaks into the room. and by small i mean smaller than a hand held lighter... if you still want to shut the entire thing down you could turn off the gas line feeding the heater or possibly the whole house, otherwise the pilot light will stay on. as far as the actual heater turning off, thats probably controlled by some sort of thermostat somewhere. if you set the temp to very cold it should stay off. if that doesn't work then you may need a new thermostat.
from the mod number it looks like you have electric baseboard. these do not have blowers in them they work off natural air movement. but heat up rather quickly. your gonna have to chk if baseboard is getting power to determine weather or not the t stat or the heater is not working. but first chk your circuit breakers. most heaters are 220v (double breaker)
Buy some more thermostat cable with the same number of conductors inside it that you need. Twist the wires in the wall to the conductors on the new cable you just bought. Wrap the connections with electrical tape and pull the new cable with the old cable, starting at the furnace. You will then have all brand new conductors to fit to your new thermostat.
look inside the control panel of the heater. look for a 120 volt to 24 volt transformer. There may be a fuse on the transformer secondary. The thermostat switches a hot 24 volt wire so you won't find a common at the thermostat.
