While your Lennox® heater cannot talk to you, it possesses a way to communicate a furnace error.

Its control panel has two LED lights that can show a fault code. Depending on the problem, your furnace could show steady or flashing lights.

What Does the Flickering Light on My Furnace Mean?

Your heating system depends on lights to flash code when it requires repairs. It also works this setup to let you know it’s working like it should.

Correct function includes:

  • Simultaneous slow flash—furnace operating properly.
  • Both lights flash fast—furnace is initiating the call for heat.

If you see a single light flashing slowly and the other flashing fast, your furnace could be experiencing a low flame signal. This can occur even when your heater is operating correctly. It signifies the flame sensing rod might have buildup or in the wrong location on the burner. Call us at 814-308-0416 for assistance.

Here are a few other of the most common issues for Lennox heating systems.

Furnace Refuses to Turn On

Here are many of the light sequences you may notice when your heating system refuses to or keep operating. Most of these problems must be repaired by a professional, for instance from Patterson & Stirling.

  1. Both LED lights aren’t lit. This indicates your heater might not have power. Look at the breaker box to confirm the heating system fuse is not flipped. You should reset the fuse if it’s in the “off” position. If it rapidly turns off following a reset, don’t try to reset it again and get in touch with us us at 814-308-0416.
