Question about Air Conditioners
When you turn on the heat to my ruud package unit the ignitor lights the flame and then it goes out after about two tries the dianostics light binks once and the furnace shuts off please help
One flash on a Ruud furnace indicates failure to ignite. There is a viewing port on the furnace where you can watch the flame. If the ignitor is igniting the burner and then 2 or 3 seconds later, the flame goes out; you most likely have a flame sensor that is dirty or not working. Check to make sure you are getting gas. Check the connections of all wires to the control board. If the sensor is not part of the ignitor, see if you can get to it to clean it with a small wire brush. Make sure there is a good ground connection between the board and furnace frame. If the flame is not traveling all the way to the flame sensor, clean your burners. If the flame burns inside the burners, you may have weak gas pressure. Good Luck.

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.
