Why Is My Lennox Furnace Clicking?

Furnace Repair – Carrollton GA

Most of us are used to the odd noises that come out of our furnace systems. Modern Lennox systems should leave you expecting a warm, efficient system throughout the winter. If a persistent “click” has appeared or your system doesn’t seem to be heating as well, it could point to a larger issue.

Furnace Issues

The Usual Suspects

Let’s take a look at a few likely causes:

  • A Bad Pilot Heat Sensor – When your Lennox has an electric spark ignition and your pilot appears lit check your main burners. If the main burners remain cold and dark, you could have a bad pilot heat sensor. In this instance the system will continually spark (creating a sharp click) in an attempt to light it.
  • Worn Bearings – With age your system’s motor bearings start to wear, it can cause a regular clicking sound as the electric motor turns. If not addressed, the problem will continue to worsen until the motor is further damaged.
  • Faulty Gas Valve – Sporadic clicking can indicate that the problem could be with your home or business’s gas valve. This can lead to a dangerous situation requiring your gas provider’s assistance.

Leaving these issues unchecked could leave you with a cold house, high repair bills, or even a dangerous gas emergency.
