Rudd UGDG-10EAMER Furnace keeps shutting off before reaching temp

Furnace was not cleaned for some time. repairman came out and changed pressure switch. worked till he left and then shut off. He said the furnace needed cleaning.(vacumed out) We did this but could"nt do the blower as I didn't know how to remove it. cleaned as best I could and tried to start the furnace? No Luck??called repairmn out for third time to see what was the problem? He said probably was the circuit board??but lites on board were working . cleaned the sensor and the blower and ran for a while but does not heat house because it keeps shutting off?? Repairman feels the board is causing the problem because of it was coming and going (Intermittent)?? He also said it wasn"t getting enough air and was overheating?? Thought maybe the Air Cond Coil in Plenum was blocked(Dirty)?? My Daughter has spent Three Hund. Dollars and it still isn"t working.. Any Sugg?? Price of cr.bd??? Thank You, Don

    have a ruud hot air gas furnace ,last 3 years it would turn on run a minute or so then shut off, then five minutes or so turn on gas burner ignites blow s gas for a minute or 45 seconds then gas shuts off etc cycles over and over like this for the last 3 winters well this winter it got worse to a point the gas would ignite for 10, 20 , 30 or maybe 45 seconds if i was lucky then the nice bright blue gas would flame out again i cleaned the spark ignitor with steel wool it wasnt dirty looking anyway, well that didnt work ,i bought a nice new thermostat that didnt work, so i read over and over the trouble shooting guide on the back panel turns out the flame kept shutting off cause theres a vacum plastic tube runs from a electrical switch to the exhaust fan above the burners for the exhaust piping out the house well the tube on one side was kinked a little , just a little cause whoever put it on seemed to cut the tube just a littttle to short so when you put it on the nipple it was kinked a little so i took it offsucked on the tube and the electrical switch would go clik ,clik so i put the tube back on the nipple without letting it kink so much it looked like the letter L before, and vooooola ! burner , furnace works like a charm ! 1st time its ever got the house to 70 or 65 or 75 or 80 if i want and the burner now stays lit until the jobs done! im so proud of myself well good luck folks! mj

Well guys it sounds to like you could have a duct work issue alot of times in the older houses the duct work is not sized correctly causing restriction of air flow wich in return is causing the limit to open in al if you have a 1200 cfm blower you have to bring in close to 1200 r/a and put out close to 1200cfms

If you have a air restriction, like the tech has said, then the system will be shutting down do to the high limit switch. This switch prevents the unit from over heating, to the point of causing sever damage. Before you call that company back out I would let them know that you are not going to pay for another trip because they haven't fixed the problem. Ruud does not have many problems with the control board. They are a die hard breed.

    To clean your "A" coil you will have to take your plenum apart to get to it. This can take some time if you have never done it before, but you will be saving a bunch of money. It would take either a 5/16 or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the screws. Once you are able to open the plenum you will have to remove the A coil a little just to look up into it. This is a very time consuming job and can be very messy. To remove the blower is easy. On the Ruud system you have either 2 or 4 bolts that holds it in place. The bolts are located on what looks like a slide rail. Once you remove the bolts the blower will slide out toward you and you should be able to see if your blower wheel is dirty or not.

Furnace blowing cold air


Try pulling the rubber hose off the inducer power vent motor housing and pressure switch. Make sure the barbed fittings are clear of debri (with a small allen wrench) and the hose is clear. Re-attach & run test.
A limit might also be open...check the flame rollout limit center manual reset & press in.

Bryant 345mav furnace shuts down early after one minute


Try to jump pressure switch as soon as the inducer come on and see if it stay longer. if it does you might have problem with draft or pressure switch itself defected.

When temp is below freezing furnace will not ignite. Fan will turn on but there's no combustion. eventually it kicks on but shuts down after a few min. We only have this problem in the really cold temps.


Check the condensate drain lines in the furnace. disconnect the power and remove the cover. Remove the black drain lines and flush and clean with a water and clorox solution. Then check the rest of your condensate drain line for blockage. the blockage is freezing and causing the furnace to shut down for a pressure problem.

Rudd model #UGDA-075C-ER furnance shuts off before reaching desired temp setting set it on 73 it will cut off at 66 etc.


Make sure that the air filter is clean and there are no restrictions in the duct system ie. carpet over register, dog lays on vent etc... If that looks OK, check your thermostat to see if it is still calling (sending a signal) to the furnace by inspecting the circuit board. I think this model of furnace will blink rapidly if there is a call for heat. You can confirm what your furnace does by looking at the board when there is a starting of a heat cycle. Keep in mind that you will need to look thru the small viewing window and not remove the door panel that has the door safety switch. The door switch de=energizes the system. The board will also blink a certain number of times if it experiences an error. You can find the diagnostic chart on the wiring diagram pasted on one of the door panels. It may give you a starting point where to look if you have an error code blinking.

I have a rudd hot air gas furnace,ignitor sparks


to carmelmontgo; do you have a smart gas valve sometimes the wire connections get loose. remove wire connector then reinstall. also cleaning a flame sensor will work if the flame sensor is good. I would check the ground connection sometimes contaminated with rust. also I would check the gas pressure with a gas manometer...my email is alpharomeo@windstream.net

I have a comfort zone furnace. If it's 50 degrees in the house, and i set my thermostat to 70 or so,it takes at least 24 hours to reach 70 degrees. The furnace starts up and runs normally for about five...


When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.

Electric furnace won't shut off

Ignitors shutting of for about 30 sec then relighting.


This sounds like a flame sensor problem. You may lightly sand the sensor for a better sensing the flame that will keep it running. There is another problem it could be. Check that the proper gas pressure according to the mfg is correct. A very slight amount has cause this problem quite a few times. You should have a qualified person with a gauge designed for this to test it. Maybe you could get your local gas provider test the gas to the home 1st. The gas pressure adjustment and test should definately be preformed by a qualified tech. Good luck J
