I have two older Lenox g16 furnaces and neither is working. I just replaced a bad inducer motor assembly on one. The motor spins correctly and seems ok. Cycle starts pilot lights has flame sense burners light then all goes off in 5 seconds. Then it retries. I cleaned the flame sense rod. I now am hearing a buzz I think from the controller as soon as the burners start. It buzzes fir the 5 seconds and shuts off.
