Get the furnace really hot, pull the cleanout material and look it all over. If it's really bad, there is going to be a solid plug of glass to stare at. If it's clear, look up the hole. Make a little rake out of angle iron and drag the crud out. If solid, heat up the glass plug with a torch, as big as you can find. If there is really a lot of crap, be ready to contain it and keep valuable combustibles away from the cleanout.

This is not a fun job.
