Have a problem with my furnace, and I hope you can help me.
I switch the tstat to call for heat, and the following is what I get .....
1. The Combustion blower starts.
2. Then I hear a '' CLICK ''
3. There is a long quite moment.
4. The another '' CLICK. ''
5 Finally the main blower turns on, and all we have is cold blowing air. NO HEAT.
I never see the Igniters glow, and I only smell a hint of gas.
MAKE : LENNOX
Sounds like the ignitor is bad. there shoule be a 2 wire plug going to it. after the inducer motor starts, you can check the voltage at the 2 wire plug located under the burners. you can unpug it to check voltage or you can probe the back side of the plug with a volt meter. if you are getting 120v but it is not glowing, it is bad. you can also ohm it out while it is off.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When you say door are you referring to the front door or the furnace door? If the unit kicks on AND off by itself I would say it's in the tstat or the tstat wire. If it were internal I would think the blower relay or heat contactor/relay were getting stuck AND THE FAN WOULD NOT TURN OFF until you flipped the breaker. Good luck
If it's a new thermostat that you have recently installed, check your installer configuration. Make sure the tstat is set up for gas or electric heat, depending on what you have. Some t-stats also have a small switch on the back to switch from gas to elec. A gas furnace has components to control the fan, electric unit uses the tstat to control the fan. Hope this helps!
If its a high or mid efficiency furnace most of the time the sequence of operation goes as follows: tstat calls for heat (R&W at tstat ) ventor motor starts, pressure switch closes, spark or hsi lights pilot or main burners. main blower motor comes on. From your description of a humming noise it sounds like maybe the ventor motor is seized.
Hi check out the flame senser is clean also jump ou tthe pressure switch see if it lights when you do this , igntion modul is just a box with some push on wires just get the right one the info is all on the module
Expensive is relative, service calls are never free. But if you have an idea what the problem is, you are armed against an unethical service company. Now to what you describe, could be a couple things, first let me explain the difference in fan speeds. Furnaces that both heat and cool have multi-speed blower motors. High speed is for cooling and lower speeds are for heating. The fan switch at the T-Stat turns on the high speed fan relay. The lower speed fan is turned on by either a temperature activated switch (silver box mounted on front on furnace above burners) or a time delay relay which is solid state. That being said, your problem could be a defective fan switch or one of your blower motor windings has gone bad. Most motors have 3 or 4 speeds and a technician could just change speeds and all would be good. A fan/limit switch is not so expensive that you would replace the unit. Bottom line, unless your really handy, a heating company is in your future. Good luck and please rate my answer if it was helpful to you.
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.
That's going to be in your installer configuration. Check and make sure the G terminal has a wire connected to it at the tstat , and that connection it tight. In the configuration menu, make sure it is set for a heat pump, elected heat. It seems to me that the tstat doesn't know its connected to a heat pump. Should be able to locate aodel # for tstat on the back of it. And ask Mr. Google for a manual, if you don't have 1. Hope this helps!
