Try getting the numbers on top of the compressor and taking that to your ruud dealer

I have a RUUD gas pack unit.....when you turn on the heat, the blower does not blow any air out of the vents while on "auto". If you put it on "on" it blows cold air out of the vents. What is wrong?


Sounds like the thermostat is hooked up wrong. If the ac doesnt work right its in the thermostat programming or the wiring. Hope this helps good luck

Ruud gas pack cuts off after a short heating session. Only can start by resetting rollout switch. What could be wrong?


burners could be rusted blocking gas from getting across , so it pockets up and ignites all at once ,there also could be a partial blockage in heat exchanger but this is unlikely, or more seriously the heatexchanger could be rusted out with large holes in it so when blower comes on the positive pressure pushes flame back. either way when the roll out switch is tripped it indicates a pretty serious and potentially harmful issue that should be inspected and diagnosed by a reputible company.

I HAVE A RUUD SILHOUETTE GAS FURNANCE. The pilot light keeps blowing out. When I light the pilot flame it seems to work perfectly at ignition. As the Manual instructs, I hold down the ignition switch for...


Short answer, yes. However you could have another problem. Replace the thermocouple that keeps the pilot lit. You can get a universal one at any good hardware or farm store. Make sure the new thermocouple is well into the pilot flame. If the blower knocks out the pilot flame again, I would be suspecting cross contamination from a crack in the heat exchanger. As the exchanger heats up, it may be causing a small crack to open and allows the blower to extinguish the flame. It may also be causing a leak of Carbon Monoxide into the heated room air. I would get it checked out very quickly.

Ruud UBHC AC System - Provides no Aux Heat


Tried this on my unit today, and observed the same results, but got Aux Heat (with A setting), if the H (blue wire) connected to B terminal, as per instructions for my 6036 Ritetemp. However, in this case, when the set temp is reached, I hear the click, but HVAC still blows aux heat indefinitely.

I also have RUUD UBEA 17J10..., and replaced my old honeywell with 6036, and can't get heat pump working. Both of my units are 14 years old, so I'm thinking to replace them soon.

Ruud gas pack has stopped heating.


Could be a faulty thermostat, (referring to the furnace\heater. As far as the A.C., you must have a dual thermostat with a switch for A.C. and Heating. Is the thermostat digital or mercury bulb? As for the A.C. it sounds like it is going off on high discharge pressure. Is the cooling fan running that cools the condenser? It must be spinning freely or it may be starting and because it is partially seized, it will cut off with a high current draw. Anyways, the condenser must be clear of any debris, no shrubs around it. The compressor could be bad and trying to start but goes off on overload because it isn't starting. It's start capacitor could be bad and not giving it that extra boost on start up which is what a start capacitor does. Good luck.

Ruud gas pack has stopped heating.


Is it spark ignition or a glow coil? Sounds like the ignitor is busted. If it was a roll out switch the fan would stay on trying to cool off the switch.

RUUD model URGG-10E31JKR GASS PACK purge fan and main blower


if the purge fan wont start on its own see if there is a capactor attached. if not replace it. more than likely you cannot lube the bearings in your blower motor. the new fans are not serviceable.

Is this an older gas heat unit? If so, you may have a burnt out heat exchanger, this can be dangerous.
