This may sound not useful but the first thing to try is turn off the breaker or fuse to the feed for the furnace for 1 minute and turn back on and listen and note exactly what it does from there and will have better idea how to help and this might fix the problem try and let me know th results

Ruud furnace 2 blinking green light


The ventpipe heat limit, fan limit, and chamber limits are only a few of the safeties that turn a furnace off when something is getting too hot. I recommend a qualified technician have a look at it.

The fan blows but the igniter does not light.


When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. On a call for heat
2.The draft inducer motor starts.

3.The pressure switch which has a small plastic or rubber tube attached yo it senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes.

4.The draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear the gas making a hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow,therefore the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the gas hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Please Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could possibly have a furnace control board problem or a bad limit switch or rollout switch problem.

I have a thermostat that periodically turns blank and heat stops working. To get it to work again I go to the attic, where the furnace unit is, and turn off the switch for the furnace at the wall, then...

Doesnt blow any heat we checked all connections furnace clicks on but never gets warm we think maybe its the heating element but we are not sure how to get to it to check


Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem.The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Our oil tank ran out of oil. We just had it


On the burner unit near where the inlet line enters the unit you will find a little bleeder screw It should require a small 1/4 or 5/16" wrench to open it DO NOT remove it just open it a full turn or 2
Fuel and air will come out of the top of this fitting Once no more air comes out close the bleeder, clean up any spilled fuel and restart the furnace
You may have to do this a couple of times to get all the air out of your lines

AC Fan doesn't blow cold air, frozen coil noticed outside, resetting power resolves temporarily


You need to call a reputable service technician.  The freezing up usually is associated with a low refrigerant charge or low air flow.  Check your return air filter and replace as needed.

Furnace blows cold air, ignitor won't glow.


ok this is going to sound funny but it seems as though the polarity is reversed going into your furnance. to correct this proiblem you first need to unplug the unit and where the cord goes into the furnance at that connection disconnect the two wires. Once theses are disconnected switch the wires .All you are doing is reversing the way the electricity flows into the circut board. I would wager that is the problem

Sounds like your indoor fan motor is not working, check either the cap or the indoor fan motor it's self.
