Lennox HVAC Circuit board problem
I have a Lennox central unit with a 24L8501 circuit board that is flashing alternating fast lights. When I bypass it the blower goes on. There is 120 V getting to the board. The compressor is working.the model is G26Q4/5-100-6. It looks like the board was wet at some point. My friend said replace the board. Is there anything else I can try before spending the money?

Here is a link to the service manual for your unit:

If you look on page 12 it shows that alternating fast flashes is:

Improper main ground or
Line voltage below 75 volts
Broken ignitor
Open ignitor circuit

Here is another link that contains a schematic for your board (page 10):

If you look at the schematic on page 10 (bottom right) it shows the main grounding point. That is where I would start be inspecting the ground and making sure it is tight and not corroded. Turn off power to unit before tightening any wires or screws as a safety precaution!

Do you have a condensate drain safety switch that might be preventing blower from coming on?
