SOURCE: How do you change the air filter on a Ruud silhouette II furnace?

If it is a down flow, it will usually be found in the return air plenum just above the blower. You need to remove the front panels and look inside above the blower. You may need to remove a second door to access the blower section. If it is an upflow, remove the bottom door and look alongside the blower where the return air comes in.

Flame sensor needs to be cleaned. turn off the furnace power switch or breaker. pull the flame sensor located in the burner runner section of the furnace. It will be easy to locate because it has 1 wire running to it. pull the screw being very careful not to harm anything else. get the sensor out. inspect it for cleanliness. clean the sensor with light grade sand paper gently. re-install the sensor plug the wire back on. restart your furnace and this should fix the problem.

I would be looking at the heat exchanger. They are designed to have the heat from burnt fuel flow thru them. Cracking or pin holes will let the super heated air into the furnace interior and in there you have some over heating protection some look like buttons, older they look like an external thermostat, and these get the hot gas from the burners and trip then the furnace shuts down. When the furnace comes on again some times the blower will come right on because the sensor says hey this thing is hot when in fact it isn't. This also can and if bad enough will cause carbon monoxide poisoning, please inspect this closely or have a professional look at this. There is no price ever to great to replace a human life.Sorry probably not the answer you wanted but better safe than sorry!

SOURCE: my ruud silhouette II gas

are all the vents in the house full open?
is the flue vent pipes clean and un obstructed?

be sure none of your ductwork on the air return side is collapsing restricting airflow when the blower tries to run.

Is the draft inducer fan coming on?

could be a bad high limit switch.

My furnace comes on and heates the house for about


There is a limit switch that is likely opening. Be sure your filters are clean and all registers and grilles are open and not obstructed. If the problem continues, you may have a dirty indoor coil or undersized duct work. Some models have a window where you can observe the LED lights. If when the furnace shuts down you see any blinking, you need to count the flashes and we can figure out what the problem is from there.

I have Ruud Silhouette ii, about 5-6 yrs old...heater will work for a while, then it shuts down, house gets cold, I'd bang on the heater box, it comes back on..why does it do that? It does that every...


Rob, the blower always blows into the furnace therefore the arrow should always point to the furnace. As far as the unit failing at times, you may have a lose wire. Inspect all wires and reconnect them after cleaning if they look suspicious. Turn off the power to the unit prior to this. Your Ruud may have a diagnostic light that may help you troubleshoot the furnace next time it fails to operate. Check on the wiring diagram that is pasted on the reverse side of one of the panels. If it indicates a flashing or blinking light, you may be able to get a starting point where to look.

Ruud Silhouette II Gas Furnace, the furnace lights but will only stay on for a few seconds?? What could be the problem??


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).

I HAVE A RUUD SILHOUETTE II GAS FURNACE. The glow rod glows bright, the fan whirrs for 30 seconds there is a click and nothing happens...the fan stops. No flame...nothing.??


this can be a few things. tonight, i fixed one with the same symptoms and it ended up being the gas valve was bad and the gas pressure on the outlet side was only 1 in water column on an LP furnace. That is one thing and would have to be checked with a manometer. The other is the board may not be sending 24volts to the gas valve telling it to open. hope this helps

Ruud Silhouette II Fails to Ignite


sounds like you have bad flame sensor or the sensor is in a bad postition. To get eliminate the lockout turn the power off to the unit and back on again. Look at the circuit board light and see what the troubleshooting code is.
