Joel, your furnace is most likely the same as mine, and is located under the stove. If you remove the cover panel, you will see the igniter - it's just like a spark plug with a gap. I removed it and cleaned the tip with a wire brush, and then using pliers, adjusted the gap to about 1/8th inch. After several adjustments, I noticed that the stiff wires making up the sparking gap were burnt and shorter - so I bought 2 new igniters (just make sure that you get exactly
the same part number igniter), one to replace the worn one and the other to put into a small zip-lock bag fastened with duct tape attached to the inside of the compartment door in case I need to replace the igniter again.
BTW, I have spares for "critical" items kept near where you need them - I have a spare water pump in a plastic bag beside the one in service and a spare seal for the toilet bowl in a bag, with instructions, under the vanity.
