The simple diagram for that specific problem it connected series to thermal cut off sensor.
The two black wires, One came from a power supply line (it means an active power
and the other one goes to the load motor) If you shorted it connection it will run the motor.
But it bypass the sensor.

Unplug the power then try to fix the both end of that black wire connected to terminal bolt of your thermal sensor by replacing the broken plastic nut with a new one.
Fit the nut thight to avoid electrical arch while giving power on at the start.

Heater is not igniting


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
f there is no heat, check the electrical service panel for a burned fuse or tripped breaker. Relight the pilot light (see below). If there is not enough heat, adjust the burner air shutter (see below); and clean the burner ports (see below).
If the pilot light does not light or does not stay lit, clean the pilot orifice carefully with a toothpick, test the thermocouple and replace it if it is faulty (see below).
If the flame flickers, adjust the pilot (see below).
If there is an exploding sound when the burner ignites, adjust the pilot to a higher setting and clean the pilot orifice and the burner ports.
If the burner takes more than a few seconds to ignite, clean the pilot orifice and adjust the pilot light.
If the burner flame is uneven, clean the burner ports. If the burner flame is very yellow, clean the burner; open vents in the furnace room to provide more air; adjust the burner air shutter.
If the furnace makes a rumbling noise when the burners are off, clean the burner and adjust the burner air shutter.
If the air is too dry, wash or replace the evaporator pad if you have a humidifier; test the humidistat; and adjust the water-level float to raise the water level.
If some rooms are too cool and others too warm, the distribution system may require balancing. Refer to the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide .

o light the pilot on a standing-pilot (always on) ignition system, follow the lighting instructions located near the control. Otherwise, try these steps: Light the pilot:
  1. gasfurnace1.jpg Press and hold the pilot control knob to start the pilot. Set the control knob to the pilot position. Hold a long match under the pilot gas port.
  2. Press the control knob; the pilot should light. Hold the control knob down until the flame is burning brightly (about 30 seconds). Release pressure on the knob, and turn it to the on position.
  3. If the pilot goes out when you release the control knob, try relighting, holding the control knob down longer. If the pilot again goes out, check the thermocouple (below).
Adjust the pilot:
  1. Remove any cap covering the pilot adjusting screw on a combination control.
  2. Turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise to increase the flame or clockwise to decrease it. It is correctly adjusted when the flame envelops the thermocouple bulb by 1/2 inch and appears dark blue with a small yellow tip.
Test and replace a thermocouple:
  1. Hold the control knob to pilot and light the pilot as above.
  2. Unscrew the thermocouple fitting with an open-ended wrench.
  3. Set a multimeter to the DVC (lowest voltage) scale.
  4. Clip one multimeter lead to the end of the thermocouple tube nearest the pilot and the other lead to the fitting on the other end of the tube.
  5. If the multimeter shows a reading besides zero, the thermocouple is functioning. Replace the thermocouple tube.
  6. If there is no reading, you will need to clean or replace the thermocouple following steps 7 through 11.
  7. Release the control knob and shut off the main gas valve on the gas-supply pipe that leads into the burner. Shut off power to the burner at the electrical service panel .
  8. Remove the thermocouple from its mounting bracket.
  9. Wipe the combination control clean and install a new thermocouple, tightening it by hand, then give it a one-quarter turn with a wrench.
  10. Insert the thermocouple into the pilot bracket, being careful to not crimp the tubing.
  11. Turn on power to the furnace and relight the pilot (above).
Adjust an adjustable burner air shutter:
  1. Set the thermostat to its highest setting to keep the burner running. Once the furnace has heated up, remove the burner access panel and loosen the locking screw.
  2. Open the shutter by turning it to the right until the blue base of the flame appears to lift slightly from the burner port surface. Then close the shutter until the flame reseats itself on the surface.
Clean removable burner tubes and ports:
  1. Shut off gas and power to the furnace.
  2. Unscrew or loosen and remove the tubes from the supporting bracket.
  3. Carefully clean the tubes with a brush or vacuum, making sure not to damage the burner ports.
  4. Use a stiff wire to clear any debris from clogged ports.

You will need to relite the pilot if this is a standing pilot furnace........If this has an electronic lite for the pilot then cycle power to the furnace and set thermostat to heat. and retry sequence. Once you get the pilot to lite then watch it to see if the main gas comes on. if it doesn't then you need to check and see if you are getting 24 volts to the gas valve with a volt meter. If you don't feel comfortable with doing this then you will have done everything that is simple. You will have to call a service tech. Problems that it could be are gas valve, limits not closed, ignition control board, main limit open because the blowor motor locked up or motor has open winding or run capacitor open.

No spark on unit


Need more info! Is it a Gas heat unit that is package or split unit? Is it force draft induced? Is there any sounds or audible noise that it is trying to call for heat and ignite? Does the inducer fan spin-up prior to calling for pilot. Is it a pilot light or a Hot surface ingition? Is it a direct spark ignition system?

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 Rudd hot air gas furnace. The ignitor sparks and lights the fire but as soon as the ignitor goes off the fire goes out, flame light doesn't go on. What could be the cause?


Hi, Check the flame sensor next to the pilot. It should be a ceramic rod with a metal tip that rests in the pilot flame. It may be dirty. Clean the tip with steel wool real good and make sure it is in the pilot flame good. This will cause that condition to happen. If this doesn't take care of it, get back to me and we will go from there. Should solve you're problem. Merry Christmas,

Sometimes the pilot orrifice get plugged up and need to be taken apart and cleanned,,,,,, adjust the pilot flame on the gas valve, or check gas going to the unit to see if the in-line gas valve is opening and closing.

Relighting the pilot for a rudd heating and air


I dont know of any manufactor that makes a stand alone pilot anymore. (pilot you have to lite). The pilot should lite itself when you turn on the heat.
