    Model # 6CSO6 - 036 - 90 - 3P
    Serial LOOKED like LG600C 06284 not sure on these digits though

    Anyway..I need a direct spark igniter....THATS ALL for this. When I call anywhere from Grainger to Johnstone supply...I get the same answer of..............

    Serviceability of units in the field seems not to be on the radar of many manufacturers. I bet this would change if some of the design engineers had to spend a season servicing installed units for a season.

    It will probably be a whole new ignition kit and wiring harness too...with instructions that cover 10 different models and 10 different new diagrams you stick on the door.

    Not a fan of lennox or carrier furnaces when it comes to service. It is freaking pain just to clean the dang flame sensor on a lennox...

    Lennox would not like/help you anyway because you could not get the correct model number.

    You could tell the owner you cannot fix the Lennox.

    part number for the ingnition module is 49w66, the ignitor electrode itself is a 80k09, this parts fit the gcs16-036-90-3p machine with a serial date code in 03 that was the best i could come up with given the above numbers, the parts are also available in all of the parts centers in the southeast (thats all i get to see ) and in the north american parts center in marshalltown iowa, hope this helps you

    It seems Lennox is a PITA to deal with. I've had problems getting parts in a timely manner several times. More than with anybody else. I had a lady request a Lennox the other day. We put one in about 8 years ago and she has had no problems out of it. Her 2nd floor Lennox is 25 years old with no problems until the other day when the gas valve died. She opted for a new system for that one rather than fix the old thing.
    I like DIY'ers. They pay better to fix.

    Lennox equipment is OK, but getting parts is a PITA unless you are a dealer. Product support is pathetic.

    Tommy, are you looking for the "blue box" that the high tension lead is fed from?

    It should have the number of seconds of prepurge and the number of retries printed on it.
