    Trane ignitor 80 or 120?

    Have to head way out on a call Monday but want to be sure I have an 80V ignitor if needed. I have 120V galore in the truck and he's a good ways from parts place.
    Not sure and have had no luck searching so far to find out of this unit uses the 80V.
    Furnace Model TUX2B080A9422AA
    Circuit board (original) 50V60-495-04 D342262P02

    Seems Trane has been changing over to 120V ignitors when replacing old boards but if all he needs is an ignitor I want to be sure to have the correct one for this unit when I get there. Sick of these 80V oddballs and WTF their reasoning was behind them in the first place.

    I need to know what ignitor this uses BEFORE I get out there so I have the correct ignitor with me as a backup to the 80V I probably have on the truck.

    Sent you an actual email, with the replacement part # and about to send you a screenshot for proof of that as well.

    Thank you. I'm wondering if these universal 80V ignitors are any better. They seem new to me and might be by some knockoff place overseas. They are big pencil thick round ones like those White Rogers 120v ones.

    Never used them. We bought a box of 80v and a box of 120v trane igniters probably 2 years ago to split between two service trucks and I don't think we've exhausted 1/2 of either box. Don't seem to have a huge failure rate one they went over to the solid flat igniters.

    Trane has ditched ALL 80V igniters.

    They recommend replacing them with the 120V update kit.

    OEM is an 80V, IGN00117.

    Are you referring to the IFC kits with the IGN00152 included? They still sell an 80 volt replacement for the 00117, different number now. I'm curious if it's not the ifc kit what the 120 conversion you are referring to is? If you happen to have a part # handy could you PM me? Or i'll investigate further some time this week. I know there are a few different conversion kits with boards, like the variable speed inducers that are no longer available and require a new board and inducer, just a 2 stage psc. And there are a couple kits converting from 80 to 120 volt igniters, but haven't seen anything to simply convert the igniter alone. Thanks!

    I have had 3 ignitors ( 80 volt) go bad on this furnace AS Model- AUHMD120ACV5VAC. Meeting electricians out there Monday to check proper grounding of the house. Have they had some big issue with the 80 volt ignitors?
