Evcon Furnace- Pilot won't light

I have an old(13 yrs?) Evcon furnace in a mobile home. The pilot lighter used to click all the time when the gas was turned off in the spring, then it stopped. Now when I set the pilot lever to set, it won't light. It won't even make the clicking noise.
Is the auto-lighter electrical or battery operated?
What should I look for?

Take the cover off the burner compartment of the furnace. Obtain the model number of the furnace off the rating plate in the burner compartment and post it here.


Turn the thermostat all the way down.


Turn the thermostat up and carefully observe the sequence of events that occurs as the furnace goes through its sequence of operation. Describe what you observe here in detail.

model # DCRT075AUA or DCRT015AUA

I turned the thermostat down and then up. I heard a click in the blower section that signals the heat is coming on. It is normally followed by the roar of the burners, I assume. This time nothing.

I'm not able to find information on your furnace based on the model number.

If there is a circuit board or ignition module, perhaps you can post the make and model of that.
