Customer Question

Matt. I have a Lennox G43UF that is not igniting. I followed the steps on this site and I measured the voltage from the circuit board and it was at to the ignitor harness. I was reading about 118 volts, so not quite 120v. Is this enough voltage?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: When the furnace turns on the inducer motor runs, and it runs for a few minutes then shuts off flashing an alternating red and green light.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — HVAC Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

I did not see any glow from the ignitor in the site glass. One other problem I can't figure out how to get the ignitor out. The wires go into the burner box, but there is no screw to hold it in. I don't know if I'm supposed to open the burner box, it seems like it is sealed pretty tight.

118v should be sufficient for igniter to glow.We need to get to it to see if maybe it is burned.

Looking for a picture showing the igniter, there should be a bracket holding it in front of first burner.May have to remove a panel to get to it.

Unable to find a pic. If you can take a pic of the burner box about 18" away I should be able to help you locate the ignitor and how to remove it to check it for crack or burned place.
