“bad ignition, but furnace runs great” , posted Thu 10 Nov 18:15 ______________________________________________________________________ I have a Lennox propane furnace (circa 1994) with a heatcraft control board upgrade. The problem is when it tries to start the exhaust fan and the propane will kick on but no ignition. I can get it to light (very carefully) with a BBQ grill lighter and it will run normally. I know that a new control board is a few hundred dollars, but would there be way I could replace a component on the circuit board (which the diagnostics show as normal), if replacement of the ignition plug or a new wire failed to work? Thank you for the help any one might have. just saving cash Replies: tinman “Re(1):bad ignition, but furnace runs great” , posted Thu 10 Nov 19:17 ______________________________________________________________________ Do you have a spark ignitor(clicking)or is it a hot surface ignitor.Sounds like it is your hot surface ignitor and not a circuit board problem.It is located right in front of your burners usually 2 white wires going to it.120 volts powers it if you have power going to it and it does not glow to light the main gas replace it. pxfwichita “Re(2):bad ignition, but furnace runs great” , posted Thu 10 Nov 22:11 ______________________________________________________________________ to: “tinman” They’re the clicking kind, i assume the type that sparks(clicking). It has a thick black wire that runs from a black cylinder on the main board connecting to two bare wires that set in the path of the flame, they are the thickness of hanger wire. One i guess is the positive and the other ground. There is also a separate apparatus that i think is a flame sensor assembly with a braided white insulated wire that goes to it. Thank you so much for your help!!! just saving cash acefurnacefixer “Re(3):bad ignition, but furnace runs great” , posted Fri 11 Nov 07:03 ______________________________________________________________________ All the heathcraft board does is work the blower and inducer. The ignition is controled buy a ignition control box. What you need to find out is if you have low voltage present at the ignition control box. Should have 24 volts between common and hot, if you dont then possibly the pressure switch is not closing due to a blocked vent, or you have a open limit circut.If you have 24 volts at the control and no spark then the control is bad. Yes! I CAN fix that!
