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.

Our oil furnace keeps shutting off when temp is reached then my husband has to gobleed it then itll start back up but do the process over


Depends on if this is a 1 or 2 pipe system. If it is a 1 pipe system, the fuel pump may not have enough pressure & need to be replaced. A 2 pipe system should self prime, so if there is no return fuel line, you may need to consider installing one. Also check to make sure the fuel filter is clean.

Your furnace should have a 5 year warranty. Check with Goodmanmfg.com and see if it is still covered. The installer should have registered the serial #.

I have a 4 year old Goodman heater model GMS81155CNA that we just replaced the blower motor on, fortunately it was under warranty until April. Now it keeps trying to cycle 2 or 3 times before the burners...


i would start by checking the flame sensor mounted in the same area as the ignitor or glow stick as you called it... the flame sensor is a metal rod mounted in the direct path of the flame once lighted... it senses the flame and sends signal back to control board to keep gas valve opened and continue the operation.... if the flame sensor is dirty or faulty will start to shut system down premature... the pressure switch could be a problem as well but normally if it goes bad it will fail as soon as unit fires and continue to fail due to a bad diaphram in switch... will mimic a bad flame sensor as well unit will fire but will within seconds shut back down.... the ignitor has to be hot enough to light when gas enters chamber and can be weak but if it works sometimes then i would say it is ok....the flame sensor can be pulled and gently cleaned with light grit sand paper dont over due it but clean it up a little and try it... again it is located next to hot surface ignitor( glow stick) usually has quarter inch hex head screw holding it in place... positional to get out but will come out....

Furnace cuts off before reaching set temp.


You can make sure it is not the thermostat by crossing or jumping the R and W terminals (or associated wires) together. This will keep the furnace calling for heat. As it is approaching set temperature, get in front of the furnace and inspect the air filter to make sure it is clean, watch the control module for any error codes that may be turning off the system prematurely.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

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
