Trane XV80 Destroying Multiple Igniters
Greetings - I am very grateful to locate your forum:grin2: Purchased my Trane XV80 in 10/2003 & system has performed quite well - until last winter. Long story short, zero heat/cold winter day - called contractor - diagnosed hot surface igniter - quoted $., had presence of mind to research part via internet ($) & source compatible part for WR 768A-15 through local supplier the next day. 1st (compatible-cobbled-together) igniter failed within 2 weeks, given a direct replacement & this got me through last winter. I ordered two spares (WR 768A-15) from Pex two weeks ago, which was a good thing because the igniter failed again yesterday.:gah: Replaced with igniter from Pex, (this is taking me about 5 minutes now) & bam, the world is good again & my significant other returns to the usual complaints of everything I am not doing particularly well with - BESIDES THE IGNITER...
Can someone PLEASE help me understand the next step(s) for troubleshooting what may be causing these igniters to fail?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
