Gas furnace not firing up

After having new gas logs installed, we relighted the pilot for the Central Environmental Systems forced air gas furnace, but the burners will not fire up. I have found what looks like a reset button, but nothing happens when I push it. (I have attached a picture.) The pilot is burning just fine and the thermostat is set correctly. What am I missing?

Welcome to the forums.

That sensor in your picture is for flame roll out. Since your furnace had been functioning normally... that wouldn't be the problem.

It sounds like you have an older gas furnace. Does that have the type of gas valve where you have to turn the knob to pilot, hold it down, light the pilot and then turn it to on ?
Did you turn it to on ?

I'm not familiar with your brand of furnace. Can you post the model number for us. It should be located on a metal ID tag behind the service access cover.
