  1. Problem: Ignitor only getting 5.6V at terminals. Schematic calls for 120V.
    Trane 90 NG furnace 1997 vintage. W-R control board.

    Any suggestions?

    1. This could be any open safety control like a pressure switch, limit or rollout switch that is open and will not allow the ignitor to light. I would suggest that you check to make sure all the safety controls are closed. If all the safety controls are closed and you are still not getting the right voltage to the ignitor then this could be caused by a bad relay in the control board. You might need a new control board.
