In order to diagnose your problem, you will need to set your therm on emergency heat only, watch the cycle in your furnace, and tell me what it does once it tries, and how many times it try's and what it does once it's tried and stopped?

My guess is the ignitor needs replacing (old and has built up too much internal resistance). Even though it still works at times, I would suspect it first, even if it glows during an ignition cycle.

Dryer runs fine but heating unit will not ignite


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

MY ruud silhouette gas furnice unit comes on but burners don"t.can't see pilot light.the unit has electic ignitor


You either have a spark ingitor or you have a glow coil ignitor. The glow coil ignitor is located on the left hand side of the burners. It is a very fragile part.

If you have a mirror or have good eyes, look to see if
it has a crack in it.

I have the same Ruud Achiever unit & it's not working.


It sounds like it will need a hot surface igniter. This is the part that glows when furnace is turned on, and tells gas valve to release gas for it to ignite. At that point funace is lit, it heats up flame sensor witch inturn tells fan to start.

Ruud heat pump question


Does the air handler take a minute or two to start, this would be normal so that it doesn't blow cool air into the house before the unit is warmed up. If not could be the fan relay is weak and needs replacing. As far as the outside unit it sounds like you need to check the refrigerant. In cooling they are 70/150 psi. This should be checked in cooling mode, once you turn it to heating mode the pressures switch bring heat inside the house instead of out. I hope this helps.
