Lennox Furnace Dead


Welcome to internet diagnostics 101.

Never assume anything...

Just because they have a meter, doesn't mean they know how to use it.

Do not be influenced by what they "think" it is. If they knew, they wouldn't be here.

Pay attention to what you are not told.

When all the techs agree, its the wrong answer.

People tend to focus on what the last guy out there did.
If this were relevant, replacing my transmission will fix my flat tire.

People tend to focus on what the last guy out there did.
If this was not relevant, we wouldn't have call backs.

I am the Master of Cold. If I goof up your furnace, your on your own...

If the transformer is bad make sure you get an autobot, and not a decpticon...

So the problem is solved. Actually 2 problems. The transformer was bad and so was the board. Once the tech switched out the transformer( I don't know what this means. "...make sure you get an autobot, and not a decpticon...") , the unit livened up, but no heat. Glow stick didn't glow. He checked all the switches were working properly, with the Lennox tech on the phone guiding the procedure. He picked up the new board and once installed, the furnace fired right up.
Seems the house had a storm last year that fried a TV and the cable box. I'm thinking this is when it happened.
Tomorrow we put in a whole house surge protector.
Thanks for the input.
