Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Have you tried hitting the reset button? What is the model number of the furnace? do you have a multi-meter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Model # ***** 85 Lennox elite. I do have a meter. I own an automotive shop so I should have all the tools we need

I did hit the reset button and made sure the fan spins free

I'm not having any luck finding specs for this model. We can give it a go or I can open this back up to my colleagues who may have specs. Let me know what you want to do. If you want to continue I need to know what you have for a burner ignition control and what happens when you hit the reset.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Beckett burner the Lennox model # ***** ***** 140 psi
Expert:  Rick replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I still need the brand and model of the ignition control on the burner and what if anything happened when you hit the reset

Expert:  Rick replied 1 year ago.

If you can't find the ignition control model give me a picture of it. You can post a pic here by clicking on ADD FILES next to the SEND button
