Getting cold because you’re seeing error code 270 from your Lennox® furnace?
This shows you that your furnace ignitor can’t turn on the flame. After five failed tries, the furnace will stop trying to ignite. It will then go into Watchguard mode for about an hour for safety reasons.
When your ignitor ceases working, it’s best to rely on our ACE-certified technicians. They’ve gone through rigorous training, so you can rest easy knowing they’ll determine what’s creating the furnace error and will mend it to your satisfaction.

Here’s how a furnace ignitor works:

Your furnace will tell you there’s something wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to communicate error codes. It has this red light to flash code, much like Morse code.
You might see short flashes or an alternating slow flash as it shares a fault code.
