Feeling a chill because you’re getting error code 270 from your Lennox® furnace?
This means your furnace ignitor can’t start the flame. After five failed tries, the furnace will stop trying to ignite. It will then change into Watchguard mode for about an hour for safety reasons.
When your ignitor isn’t working, it’s best to depend on our ACE-certified technicians. They’ve gone through detailed training, so you can rest easy knowing they’ll determine what’s generating the furnace error and will fix it to your satisfaction.

You might see quick flashes or an alternating slow flash as it shares a fault code.
