Lennox G24M3-75A intermittent problem

______________________________________________________________________ My Lennox Gas heater G24M3-75-A2 was installed in 1999. WOrked fine till this year. The SUrelite Board (Lennox part 2418501) shows this diagnostic code Led #1 OFF Led #2 Slow blink The thermostat calls for heat and sometimes it will not fire just the exhaust fan runs continually. The following actions were performed by a qualified HVAC tech. Replaced the pressure switch (worked fine for 5 months) Same problem as before Replaced the exhaust fan motor (no change in symptoms). Viusally checked the exhaust vent for any problems. It was clear. Checked the condensation line off the pressure switch it was clear. Replaced the intake filters with new 3 M pleated filters The problem still exists with no change in symptoms. Any ideas would be appreciated.

He can check this with a manometer.

Was the original painted black?(motor and housing?) For years now when u get that code and find a black ventor housing the repair is to order the new unpainted motor that includes a new un contaminated pressure switch.. Perhaps and its a long shot, perhaps they replaced the pressure switch leaving the old painted ventor on, wich continued to flake paint and contaminate the internals of the pressure switch with moisture and paint flakes and when they changed to the new version of the ventor the damage was already done to the the new pressure switch. Aside from that.. Is your chimney lined? Or B-vent. If lined with flex liner has it been inspected right at the base of the chimney?
