Shut my furnace down today to clean it. First time it hasn't had a flame going in it in 2 months. I cleaned it out, went to start and it wouldn't start. Tried a power off/on reset and still nothing. Had all the right lights and right things happening but wouldn't start. Opened the door and felt the burn pot. Stone cold. Have a combustion fan light...power light...status light...auger feed light with pellets feeding and igniter light. Obviously a bad igniter. I'm assuming I have the regular fin type igniter and not the pressure igniter because my furnace was built in 2008. I didn't pull it out. Just started it manually with starting jell. Can't mess with it now in the cold weather. Anyway...trying to get a warrantee replacement. My furnace was built in 2008 but sat on a showroom floor until August 2011 when I bought it, so the damn igniter is only 2 years old use wise and it really hasn't started that many fires. Couple questions...If I did get the pressure igniter, is it a direct replacement for the fin type? Can chiseling away the carbon on the burn pot break the igniter if you stab the carbon in the pot with force?
