Ruud Achiver series Furnace issue

I have a Ruud AC/Furnce that was here when I moved in, so I do not know the model. The problem I'm having is that when the hearter turns on, the gas ignites, but doesn't stay lit, and making it so that the heater never fully turns on. The a/c side and fans work.

Any help you can givre is appreciated.

Sounds like it may be a bad flame sensor. After the ignition, the flame sensor needs to send 24v back to the gas valve to indicate the the ignition took place. If it does not do this, the gas will shut of as a safety precaution. The flame sensor can often be cleaned up with a piece of sandcloth to fix this problem, or it may be replaced.

This issue is caused either by a damaged power cable, or substandard wiring within your residence. DO NOT USE THE UNIT IF THE WIRE BECOMES HOT, AS IT POSES A FIRE HAZARD. Have the furnace checked by an authorized technician, and also verify that the wiring in your residence is adequate for the current draw of the furnace.

All my other AC Units have had a drain directly to the sewer system...usually connected under a sink. Does my Ruud unit only have the drain to the outside of the house? Usually, when the AC is draining...

If you have a CENTRAL air unit, you should have an overflow to a drain in the furnace area. So I don't understand what you are saying about a connection to the drain under the sink!

Do you have the make and model correctly listed? Because with your question it does not agree what I know about the Ruud Central air that you listed.

My adp coil already failed in my only 2.5 yr. Old Carrier ac unit. I am now looking at an estimated $1500.00 repair. Coil is under warranty so the above cost reflects labor only. Adp serial #7107A07780....

Sorry, I don't have any solution but I'm in the process of replacing my 2 AC systems (4 tons by York). My RUUD dealer has provided RUUD ac and gas furnace with ADP coil and not using RUUD coil. Should I insist on using RUUD coil rather than ADP coil?

Furnace runs on heat, air conditioner does not

If you have a Gas furnace in the Attic then the answer is yes. The outside condenser will not run if in fact you have a gas furnace.
