Correcting Error Code 201 on Your Lennox® Furnace

Cold house and experiencing error code 201 from your Lennox® furnace?

Your furnace’s indicator light will show this precise trouble. This red light can be found on the front of your furnace, and usually can be viewed through a tiny window on the access panel door. The light pulses red to display error codes, like Morse code.

As it replicates a fault code, you might see fast flashes or a slow flash that goes on and off. Error code 201, for instance, means there’s a problem with your furnace’s blower motor. As a consequence, the furnace won’t be able to heat as it can’t talk with this piece.

Your Furnace’s Blower Motor Isn’t Working—What Next?

Your furnace’s blower motor is an essential piece because it moves the hot air your furnace creates. Your home can’t heat up without it.

This error is commonly the result of a power outage or the motor not getting power. Detatched wiring or water on the system component controls might be the issue. It could also mean there’s an issue with the motor itself.

Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 201

The cost to service your furnace is dependent upon what the issue is and how many hours it will take to repair. With this problem, there may be something faulty with the blower motor or the system’s component controls.

Here’s the typical price for repairs and replacement:

  • Blower motor repair: $150–$450
  • Replace furnace control board, high efficiency: $600
  • Replace furnace control board, single stage: $75–$200

Your actual expenses will vary based on what the issue is and what model of furnace you have. High-efficiency furnaces, such as variable-speed models, are more complex. Because of that, they’re frequently more expensive to fix.
