Most of the Lennox G-16s that I have repaired were having problems with the gray Penn-Johnson Piggyback igniton control module.
This is best repaired by replacing the spark module. Sometimes it may be neccesary to replace the gas valve also. Lennox updated to a ROBERTSHAW ignition system. Honeywell can also be used.
Also check that there is no water in the pressure switch or tube.
Hope this helps.

I have a lennox furnace/ new thermostat/ wont turn on/ have to turn the switch to on and off a few times or completely leave it off for a small time and then it will come on and sometimes run for hours....


i dont belive that furnace has a spill switch so the chimney would not be your problem with this.the furnace has a lock out after so many trys to light. by turning it off your reseting the board. i would look at my pilot light as the main problem. it may need to be cleaned. then look at flame rod position. remove gas tube from bottom of pilot assemble and a small thimble looking thing should come out it has a very small hole in it to clean. reassemble and check connection with soapy water with the pilot lit for leakage

I have a Lennox Whisper Heat that when a call for heat comes, the pilot lights as it should, then after about 30 seconds the blower fan comes on, then its about another minute before the burners light....


Yes it should go in this sequence, first exhaust fan, after establishing air flow you get a pilot, after signal from pilot is established you get main burners, then they have to reach a set temperature on the high limit and then the blower comes in. Now you have several over heat safety sensors one of them could be tripped check by powering the furnace down and see if they have a reset button on them, some do some do not. If not it should be the sensors closest to the heat exchanger and blower assembly use a volt ohm meter and check them should be normally open until temp is established then closed. This is easier done than it is to describe, now locate the high limit switch and bulb and see if it is open across the contacts it should be until it hits temp then it closes to start the blower. Hope this helps instead of confusing the hell out of you. Take your time locate the items then test.

I have a lennox furnace that is about 25 years old and for the last few days it doesn't want to kick on. I replaced the thermostat thinking that was the problem, but it wasn't. The problem that I'm having...


I would suggest that you have someone turn thermostat up to call for heat while you are watching. Being that old it may or may not have a induced draft motor on it. It it does the draft blower should come on first, then spark igniter,then pilot ,next the main burner,and after a short period the main blower. If you do not have induced draft motor the spark igniter should come on as soon as thermostat calls for heat. If it doesn't I would check all electrical connections making sure they are all clean and tight fitting. Just follow it through step by step . You can use volt meter to check across red and white wires from thermostat to where they hook into furnace. When you are calling for heat you should read about 24 volts. I would be inclined to replace spark igniter but if it does what it's is suppose to then I would go to gas valve. It might be worth your time to check connections on t-stat. I have occasionally seen wires that were broke under screw and some time make connection and other times not. You can also remove red and white wires from t-stat and temporairly touch them together. this should turn heater on. Hope this helps. Thanks.

My Lennox G10R03-110-1 heat unit, will not light the burners even though the pilot light is lit, and the thermocoupler was just replaced today


Hi,
You have a pretty old Lennox there. The G-10's went out of production many years ago....
Since you have pilot and the thermocouple was replaced you will need to check and see if there is voltage going to the gas valve. You should have 24v AC across the two wires on the gas valve when there is a call for heat. If not then the limit switch or the high limit switch are cutting the power to the gas valve. You will need to reset or replace them.
If you have power to the gas valve then you have a
faulty gas valve and will need to replace that.
It if very possible that the gas valve has failed on a furnace the age of yours. That would be my first guess. But do check for voltage before replacing it.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!
