As with all home repairs, the first step is to turn off the power and in this case, the fuel. There should be a switch on the side of the furnace, if not, check the electrical service panel and shut off the appropriate breaker.

The gas line will be connected to the furnace in a black pipe and will have a shut off valve nearby. To shut off the gas, turn the valve so it is perpendicular to the gas line.
