    When replacing ignition controls and there is no direct cross to say,a Honeywell Universal, can't you just match the specs as close as possible? Don't see anything special about this Johnson Control that was on a Lennox Rtu. The local wholesaler mentioned something about,some controls are all plastic versus metal on the backside for grounding. Never heard that before! :dunno:

    Lennox should be able to get a board that superceedes that one. The last one I did switched to a black one, united electronics maybe?

    in a pinch I just get something with the closest specs I can find, then order the exact replacement.

    White rogers has a universal that comes with different chips that control the purge time, trial, etc.

    ...or unless the ignitor is touching the bottom of the burner rack and grounding out,as I discovered after swapping out the box.

    Got the New box(black). Turns out,that it's all plastic vs. the old one with the metal backing and the extra ground wire. So the Counter Guy was right, I just never noticed until now.
