Repairing Error Code 201 on Your Lennox® Furnace

Chilly house and getting error code 201 from your Lennox® furnace?

Your furnace’s indicator light will display this precise problem. This red light is located on the front of your furnace, and usually is visible through a small window on the access panel door. The light flickers red to communicate error codes, like Morse code.

As it repeats a fault code, you might observe speedy flickers or a slow flash that alternates. Error code 201, for instance, means there’s an issue with your furnace’s blower motor. As a consequence, the furnace won’t be able to turn on as it can’t communicate with this piece.

Your Furnace’s Blower Motor is Malfunctioning—What Do I Do?

Your furnace’s blower motor is a critical piece since it distributes the heated air your furnace creates. Your residence can’t warm up without it.

This error is frequently caused by a power outage or the motor not receiving power. Unsecured wiring or water on the system component controls may be the problem. It may also mean there’s a problem with the motor itself.

Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 201

The cost to repair your furnace depends on what the issue is and how much time it will take to solve. With this issue, there could be something faulty with the blower motor or the system’s component controls.

Here’s the estimated 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 exact costs will be different based on what the issue is and what type of furnace you have. High-efficiency furnaces, such as variable-speed models, are more complex. As a consequence, they’re often more expensive to service.
