Fixing Error Code 201 on Your Lennox® Furnace

Frigid residence and getting error code 201 from your Lennox® furnace?

Your furnace’s indicator light will show this precise issue. This red light is located on the front of your furnace, and typically can be seen through a tiny window on the access panel door. The light flickers red to show error codes, much like Morse code.

As it replicates a fault code, you may notice fast flashes or a slow flash that goes on and off. Error code 201, for instance, means there’s trouble with your furnace’s blower motor. Because of this, the furnace won’t be able to switch on since it can’t contact this component.

Your Furnace’s Blower Motor is Malfunctioning—Now What?

Your furnace’s blower motor is an essential piece because it distributes the warm air your furnace generates. Your home can’t get warm without it.

This error is typically caused by a power outage or the motor not having power. Unsecured wiring or condensation on the system component controls could be the problem. It could also mean there’s a problem with the motor itself.

Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 201

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

Here’s the typical cost 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 exact expenses will vary based on what’s wrong and what type of furnace you have. High-efficiency furnaces, like variable-speed models, are more detailed. Because of that, they’re often more costly to repair.
