Ignition Lockout on this unit means #1 that it is set up on propane. If you are low on propane, or were low on propane and just refilled, low/no gas pressure could be the issue. If you ran out of propane, thre is now air in the gas line that needs to be fully blead out.
If propane level is not the issue, replace the ignitor.

The ignitor on these units is also the flame rectifier (flame sensor). If the unit is firing up, but the computer thinks that it is not, then it is not sensing a flame. Replacing the flame rectifier/ignitor will fix the problem in this case.

My ideal logic combi 30+ is saying ignition lockout and my radiatiors arent heating up as well as my water not turning hot. How can i fix this please?


Lockout is a safety feature. Usually a latching condition and needs to be investigated rather than blindly reset. (The Combi has a bit more intelligence.) With the ignition locked out, you can't hi-fire the boiler, so no hot water of either type. The 'L' should also show a code number - check your user manual (google) for more guidance.

I've had a lockout on a non-combi: it was caused by lack of circulation of central heating water through the boiler.... The system boiled and the trip tripped. The pump WAS running, but wear in a valve actuator resulted in the valve feedback saying valve open while it was physically shut.

It sounds like the ignitor is not working, Since the heater is not detecting a flame it goes to lockout. Check the ignitor wiring to see if it is in good shape. Sometimes the connection where the wire (from the IID) connects to the ignitor gets corroded.

It could also be the IID which makes sure the safety loop is complete before calling for heat and sending current to the ignitor. Good luck with it.

Usually a lockout code means it tryed so many times and then it locks out or stops. First, when a furnace is locked out you have to kill the power to the furnace to reset the lockout. I don't know this furnace but there are manual resets around the burner called flame rollout switches that have buttons in the middle that have to be pushed back in. Also the power vent has to come on when the furnace gets the signal from the thermostat. This is proven by a flow switch with a rubber hose on it. The next step is a 30 sec. purge, then the igniter glows or sparks and then the main burner comes on.
The other switches are hi limit on the front wall of the heat exchanger. That might get you started. If you have anymore questions [email protected]

Reddy heat/scheu kerosene space heater no ignition


Typical kero heater uses either a spark ignition or a hot surface. The hot surface igniter is very fragile. A small bump may break the elements. Flame is detected by a photocell, signal is sent to the lockout relay board. Change the igniter costs about 50 bucks.
