Furnace + bad smell = possible danger.

While a smell could be caused by one of the heating pipes passing through an area of damp, rot or where certain wildlife goes to die, it is possible a fault with the combustion, the flue or simply insufficient ventilation.

Best not to take chances as some furnace or flue faults can be life-endangering so call a qualified heating engineer at your earliest opportunity.

I have a lennox furnace that woke me up with a burning smell coming through the vents. I went downstairs and checked the furnace and found nothing on fire. Turned thermostat down from 68 to 64 and burning...


Hello
Its possible the motor is going bad,more likely the blower wheel assmebly needs to be cleaned.

Have a look at the blower motor assembly for dust and dirt on and around the blower motor and wheel.Clean it off with a damp rag and a vacum cleaner.
Check the area for any trash or loose stuff that could be causing this smell.

Usually when a motor goes bad it will run for a while then slow down,then stop on thermal overload.

Then when it cools off it will restart.

Lennox pulse 21 furnace - nothing runs on but control board tries


you will need to verify voltage from the board to the inducer. If you have the installtion manual there is a flow chart for the sequence of operation of the furnace.
The basic sequence is:
1. thermostat calls for heat
2. inducer motor starts and runs for a pre-set amount of time
3. the pressure switch closes and allows for ignition trial
4. ignition is proved back to the board allowing the system to operate.

Verify 120VAC to the inducer motor upon call for heat from stat, if you have 120 at the leads that connect to the inducer and it does not start , the motor is faulty. If the inducer starts use a voltmeter across the pressure switch terminals, a voltage reading of 0 VAC will verify contact closure and ignition should occur.

The pulse furnace was under a factory recall due to breaches in the heat exchanger, unfortunately for you, the Lennox Corp. has ended the program that allowed for an allowance / furnace for replacement. To test the heat exchanger a special kit is required from lennox that will verify integrity of the heat exchanger. (If the heat exchanger seal has been comrimised the pressure switch will not prove and the igniton sequence will be interupted and cause the system to go into "lock-out" mode).I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear. Hope this helps, please list as "very helpful" if it did

No ignition on pulse furnace. runs through cycle trying to start and you can smell gas outside by the exhaust tube


MAYBE the module. If you call for help be sure they know how to work on a Pulse or they're likely to just tell you to replace the furnace (try to find a company that was a Lennox dealer at least 10 years ago). The Pulse is a very different animal that many in my industry don't understand and are quick to fault - the Edsel of the heating industry.

The bearings are bad. You need to replace the motor. Motor cost $75 to $125. Labor is on avg. $150 to $400 with an decent A/C Company . You can try to oil it but its not recommend by Lennox. That furnace at the time they build it was top of the line. Good Luck.
