My Ruud Furnace wont stay lit

This heater will start as normal with a fan stating to run for a minute then the burner will ignite and go out almost immediately so we dont get any heat.

    I have the same issue. It is sporadic though. It won't work for a while and then will work for a week or so and then won't again.

Hi Bmreid
The problem you describe sounds pretty much like your gas valve is going bad. There is a brand by Honeywell called a Smart Valve which is anything but smart, when the electronics in the valve start going bad the furnace will run great for a day or two and then the next day may not run at all and then an hour later my run and then an hour later may not run again. Very sporadic operating furnace is usually the Honeywell Smart gas valve going bad.

Pull your flame sensor out from in front of the burners. It is about a 3" long metal rod. Clean it with a piece of sand paper and then reinstall it. It should work fine.

Our Lennox Conservator G8E furnace goes through several ON-OFF cycles (we counted up to 10 clicks) before it stabilizes and stays ON. Once it's ON it works fine. - Any suggestions?


If its a gas furnace it could be the heat sensor on the pilot flame unit. When the sensor is failing it stops telling the control that the pilot is lit properly and the furnace goes thru another start up sequence.
You can try to scrape any flash and dirt off of the heat sensor rod to clean it or remove it and clean or replace the sensor or the pilot assembly. There are plenty or furnace parts on Amazon. The next most likely thing is the relay board is ready to fail that part is ~$80 but you need to get the part number right and be experienced with wiring.
WARNING-DANGER B4 you do anything to your furnace Turn Off The POWER first! If there is no plug or switch near by, shut of the circuit breaker! If you don't know what any of this means then you are likely not a good choice to mess with this device
Be Safe :)

I have the following home thermostat Honeywell-YRTH230B1009-Thermostat My husband changed the filter last night and the heat has not been on since. The gas in on and the pilot is lit but still no heat. We...


If your furnace has a filter or fan compartment door, be sure it closed tightly and that the filter is installed correctly - there could be an interlock switch that is preventing the thermostat from operating. Also, if you haven't already turned off the power to the furnace, do that, wait a minute and then turn it back on.

Obviously, make sure the thermostat is on, is set to heat and calling.

Replacing blower motor in furnace w/Fasco brand #D727


Some one missed the wiring diagram. I believe its like this:
L1 = Line 1 = (Hot all are same thing)
Black Hi
Blue Med
Red LO
Now usually the black is for AC and connects to a normally Open (NO) contact on the blower relay.
The heater speed (either red or blue) go the the normally Closed (NC) on the blower relay and on one side of this wire or contact on the relay it goes to the heating blower thermostat on the furnace.
The remaining wire (blue or red) you tape off.
L1 also feeds the Run Capacitor on 1 side and the Brown wire feeds the opposite side

The white wire is Neutral and goes to the neutral on the main line.

If this helps you please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Blower will not come on


could be the fan relay is bad. or the run capacitor. if these check good. you may have a bad heat sequencer. hard to tell, if you thave a/c you can turn thermostat fan swith to on and if blower comes on then relay and capacitor should be ok. some units have two or three heat sequencers 1 controls fan and the others control heat strips hopefully this helps good luck

Thermastat and furnace


you should have 24 volts between yellow and white wires at the stat when the stat is set to heat and set as hot as it will go. burners should light first then 3 to 5 minutes later the fan motor should fire up. if burner doesn't light check the wires going into the top of the gas valve see if you have 24 volts arriving there from the stat. if you do then the gasvalve is probably bad. you can bypass the action of the stat by jumping red to white on 90 percent of the stats made and in a few seconds the gas valve should click open gas flow to main burner where pilot ignites it. another easy check you can do is flip stat fan switch to on. fan should come on at once. if not then you have either no high voltage to unit or no low voltage ( as in a bad transformer). if the fan comes on you know you have high volts and low volts...by cover i assume you mean the decorative cover but there second cover with the mercury bulbs and all is still there. if you have only the bare subbase then new stat time. sounds like an old furnace if it has a standing pilot, it should be checked for cracked heat exchanger by a pro with a n electronic carbon monoxide detector. NOT a diy item due to the real danger of co poisoning.
