Lennox Boiler will not light


Its a lennox boiler with a honeywell thermostat. They were both installed in 2009. I've never had any problems with it until now.

My heat won't kick on. Its about 57 in my house right now and if I mess with the thermostat it will sometimes kick on but only enough to raise the temp a few degrees. I have it set at 80 right now (my normal setting is 65). I checked the wire connections in the thermostat and where they connect to the boiler, as well as any other wire connections on the boiler. The gas, is on the thermostat is set to heat, the fan is on auto, and it also reads heat is on. The unit is about 3 years old. Any suggestions?

Look at the flashing error LED in the blower panel, and look what error it is indicating on the back of the blower panel.


PS: You have a furnace, not a boiler.

Yes, please verify that you have either a boiler (no fan) or a furnace (Fan). Boilers heat with hot water furnace creates hot air thru vents/registers
