Lennox Merit problem.


There IS gas feeding the valve, it's been proven by removing the hex plug on the inlet of valve.

yes, there is gas flow at the outlet too. I guess we can rule out valve now?

Lennox Merit problem.


Well, a little late to reply but it was finally fixed late last may and has been working like a charm since. One question is this. The combustion box fresh air intake is simply drawing in basement air through the black 2" intake pipe. I plan on (sometime soon hopefully) finish my basement and the furnace will be inclosed it it's own furnace/laundry room.

Will the intake need to be routed to pick up common area air? Outside air? Or just leave it alone? I was visiting a family member with the exact same unit as mine and had intake air coming from the outside. Is there any significant benefit to this?

Thanks to all who help!

Outside air is the way to go. You wont have air seeping though cracks and crevices of the home trying to get back in to replace what was exhausted that way.
