How a Furnace Ignitor Works

This part ignites natural gas, which helps warm up your space.

Here’s how a furnace ignitor works:

  • Thermostat launches call for heat.
  • Furnace ignitor and blower become activated.
  • Ignitor heats to as hot as 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and ignites burner gas.

A furnace ignitor should last approximately three to five years before it cracks and has to be replaced. It can break down sooner if you don’t replace your air filter when needed, since a clogged one can cause your heating system to short cycle.

What Happens When a Furnace Ignitor Stops Working

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.

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

Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 270

The bill to fix your furnace depends on what the issue is with it and the amount of time it takes to remedy it.

Before your technician replaces your ignitor, he or she will check:

  • Gas flow

  • $200 during normal service hours
