    Somewhere on the furnace, usually on one of the panels there is a chart or list that tells what the flash codes mean. Have you checked your filter?

SOURCE: Trying to wire RUUD gas furnace. connection block

No problem have done this many times. R from the t-stat goes to R on the indoor unit. G goes to G Y goes to Y and C goes to C if you have a C or the t-stat the you are using. If there is no C there dont worry about it. It only need to be hookup if the t-stat uses power from the unit to run. Many t-stats today use battery power and do not need the C wire hooked up. Now R and C from the outdoor unit. R goes to the Y on the indoor unit and C goes to C on the indoor unit. That means that you may have two wires under the Y terminal and sometimes under the C terminal on the indoor unit. If on the outdoor unit there is no designation of R and C dont worry, just hook one wire to each of the two wires there for your low voltage connection. It does not matter which one goes to which unless they are marked then it may matter.
This should get you up and running and see it really isn't that hard!! :-)

SOURCE: Ruud Silhouette II Gas Furnace, the furnace lights

Bad or dirty flame rod.
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).

We have royal red furnace to heat our home.The fan dose not stop.


Details.......does the furnace function normally otherwise? Might just be a stuck fan switch. Make sure the thermostat hasn't been set on Fan ON setting or summer air circ. on older furnaces.
Find the fan switch and tap it and see if fan quits. If it does,fan switch is bad.probably. Always make sure your air circ. filter(return air to furnace) is replaced every 3 mo. or so,too. don-ohio (:^)

My oil furnance is running but when it reches temperature it shuts off and will not come back on until we bleed the lines


You have a small leak on the suction side of the pump between the tank and the pump. when this happens the pump looses prime each time the furnace shuts down and when the furnace tries to fire up again the saftey device trips before the oil gets to the burner.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.

I have a Coleman Evcon electric furnace, the blower fan runs constantly and I have to shut the breaker off inside the front cover to turn it off. The switch is on auto and it runs even when the thermostat...


It could be a thermostat problem. Also it will seem to run constantly as it tries to heat and one of the elements are working which could be a sequencer problem.
