Getting cold because you’re getting error code 270 from your Lennox® furnace?
This shows you that your furnace ignitor can’t turn on the flame. After five failed tries, the furnace will stop trying to ignite. It will then change into Watchguard mode for about an hour for safety reasons.
When your ignitor isn’t working, it’s best to rely on our ACE-certified technicians. They’ve gone through detailed training, so you can rest easy knowing they’ll determine what’s generating the furnace error and will fix it to your standards.
We believe in the quality of our furnace repair* for a year.
This part ignites natural gas, which helps heat your house.
Here’s how a furnace ignitor works:
A furnace ignitor should last about three to five years before it cracks and needs to be subbed out for a new part. It can wear out sooner if you don’t replace your air filter regularly, since a dirty one can cause your furnace to short cycle.
Your furnace will tell you there’s a problem with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to communicate error codes. It has this red light to flash code, much like Morse code.
You might see short flashes or an alternating slow flash as it shares a fault code.
The price to fix your furnace depends on the problem with it and how long it takes to repair it.
Before your technician replaces your ignitor, he or she will check:

An ignitor frequently fails when you need it most, resulting in an after-hours trip charge.
