25 yr old Rheem furnace - no heat

Pilot flame ignites fine but the main burners won't ignite. The blower just runs and runs and then finally shuts off. Mod# RGLC-07NC-GR. Natural gas BTW. Robert Shaw igniter.

Thanks in advance for any info!

Try cleaning the pilot. I know Rheems were a bugger if the pilot was not really clean, even if it doesn't appear dirty. I'm assuming this is an electronic ignition unit, not a standing pilot with a thermocouple.
Good place to start

Hmmm.........

Clean the pilot even though it lights? I'll give it a try. BTW this is an intermittent problem. Tonight it's back on. Works like it should. Who knows how it will act tomorrow. Thx!
