Troubleshooting of error code 201 is very easy sometimes, but this can be difficult if any hardware issue has happened. Let’s start with the first step.
Turn Breakers OFF and ON
A breaker monitors the circuit and in the event of complications, such as an overload or a power outage or sometimes just a fluctuation, it immediately shut off that circuit. So, if any power outage happened and since then, the error code 201 is happening, turning OFF the breakers for 30 seconds and then back ON may help.
Check If an issue is with the Motor
Lennox Error Code 201 refers to an issue in communication with the indoor blower motor. So, if after applying the first step, this error code doesn’t fix and the communication doesn’t restore, then, you should check if there is an issue with the motor. Test the circuit and motor with a tool called ECM motor tester.
