Feeling a chill because you’re getting error code 270 from your Lennox® furnace?
This means 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 your safety.

Here’s how a furnace ignitor works:
A furnace ignitor should last about three to five years before it cracks and needs to be replaced. It can wear out sooner if you don’t replace your air filter regularly, since a dirty one can cause your furnace to short cycle.
Your furnace will demonstrate for you there’s a problem 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.
