Problem: How can I tell the difference between the Trane, American Standard 80-Volt IGN00145 ignitor and the 120-Volt IGN00152 ignitor?

Answer: This answer is directed to showing the difference between the 80-volt IGN00145 and the 120-volt IGN00152 Trane, American Standard ignitors. We have this question asked many times because it is hard to determine which ignitor is installed on some of the Trane furnaces. Some people have asked us, “Could I have the wrong ignitor installed in my furnace? My IGN00145 ignitor is going out quite often?”  If you have a new Trane furnace then you probably have the IGN00152 ignitor. If you have an older furnace that does not have a new control board KIT installed then you probably have the older 80 volt IGN00145 or IGN00117 ignitor installed. The easiest way to find out the difference is to measure your old ignitor and compare the measurements with the pictures below. You could also email me, Steve Arnold with your furnace’s model number and I will be glad to look it up and see which ignitor that Trane and American Standard recommend.
