SOURCE: Furnace not cycling properly

sounds like the flame sensor needs to be replace. You can try cleaning it with steel wool. This will get you by for a little while.

SOURCE: fan continues to run after heating

That's the fan switch. It's a thermostat that controls the fan coming on and off, it's probably failed and needs to be replaced. You can see it if you take the front off the furnace, the wires come off it and go to the fan motor.

SOURCE: meaning of rudd furnace trouble codes

Error Codes
A green LED indicates system faults
Steady On: System OK
Steady OFF: Board control fault or no power applied
1 Flash: Ignition failure (control in one-hour lockout)
2 Flashes: Pressure switch fault, fails open (switch is
stuck open)
3 Flashes: Limit switch open (main or auxiliary)
4 Flashes: Pressure switch fault, fails closed (switch is
stuck closed)
A yellow LED indicates flame status
Steady on: Normal flame is sensed
Flashes: As flame weakens, frequency of LED flashes
increases

SOURCE: my goodman furnace model gms95 has gone ape. when

It sounds like your furnace is cycling off because your high temperature limit is tripping. This could be caused by a restriction of intake or outlet airflow. First thing to check is your intake air filter, clean or replace as needed. If that doesn't help, make sure your warm air registers are open, a rule of thumb is at least 60% of the total registers need to be open for adequate airflow. The high temp limits will reset themselves after they cool so that would explain it taking a few "cycles" to reach desired temperature. Good luck and please rate my answer if it was helpful.

SOURCE: Furnace cuts off before reaching set temp.

You can make sure it is not the thermostat by crossing or jumping the R and W terminals (or associated wires) together. This will keep the furnace calling for heat. As it is approaching set temperature, get in front of the furnace and inspect the air filter to make sure it is clean, watch the control module for any error codes that may be turning off the system prematurely.

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).

If the furnace is cycling on and off and not reaching temp there is a problem in the control circuit. If the thermostat is not satisfied the furnace should be running without shutting off in which case the capacity of the furnace is inadequate because of size or problems reducing the capacity. This could be caused by an increase in home size, poor air flow (dirty filter, loose fan belts, fan running slow, obstructions in the duct), dirty heat exchanger or burner, reduced gas flow, over temperature switch bad causing the burner to shut off early, or a few more technical reasons. You may do well to call a technician to troubleshoot this problem.

Is it normal for my furnace to have burner cycle once or twice


That sounds normal. When the bonnet reaches a preset temperature the burner turns off then when it cools down a bit the burner turns back on. Clean filters etc will help to keep the burner on longer in a cycle.

Does the furnace stays off?.
Furnace are ment to cycle on and off because of limits .If you set to 70 furnace would cycle several times before reaching that temperature.
Just make sure your filters are clean and you got proper return air flow because lack of air flow will cause furnace to shut off sooner than normal

Rudd model #UGDA-075C-ER furnance shuts off before reaching desired temp setting set it on 73 it will cut off at 66 etc.


Make sure that the air filter is clean and there are no restrictions in the duct system ie. carpet over register, dog lays on vent etc... If that looks OK, check your thermostat to see if it is still calling (sending a signal) to the furnace by inspecting the circuit board. I think this model of furnace will blink rapidly if there is a call for heat. You can confirm what your furnace does by looking at the board when there is a starting of a heat cycle. Keep in mind that you will need to look thru the small viewing window and not remove the door panel that has the door safety switch. The door switch de=energizes the system. The board will also blink a certain number of times if it experiences an error. You can find the diagnostic chart on the wiring diagram pasted on one of the door panels. It may give you a starting point where to look if you have an error code blinking.

When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.

Furnace stops before set temp is reached. continously cycles like this Therm ok, tested, bypased with same effect.


Short cycling, could be because of gas pressure, drain issues from inducer and exchanger (if 90% plus furnace), auxilary limit getting to hot (dirty filters, obstruction, dirty coil), or your flame sensor is failing. Does the furnace lock out? or does it just cycle on and off? If it does how often? Thanks
