Ruud achiever 90 plus furnace-water leaks from the drain pipe

This furnace should condense, as long as it goes into the drain. If it is leaking inside the furnace, there may be a seal that needs replacing in either the pvc drain pipe or concentric drain trap needs resealed.

Freezing pipes and water dripping on to motherboard of the heater in a Ruud UAKA-030JAZ system. Help?

More than likely, the system is low on refrigerant and the copper line-set is freezing up and water is dripping onto the board in the furnace (and other things) because it is an upflow system with the evaporator coil on top. Other things to check would be:
1. Dirty/clogged filters in the return air system.
2. Fan motor not working inside furnace. (The Blower)
3. Coil dirty/clogged which could be checked by the amount of airflow coming out of the vents. This would have to be cleaned by a technician.

Most of the time, it is the charge which also means there is a leak in the refrigerant system somewhere and needs to be fixed. Hope this helps you out! Good luck.

My ruud silhouette II gas furnace starts up and runs for 15 mins. or so and shuts off. just replace thermosta and filter. ??

are all the vents in the house full open?

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

Do you think you may have water in the inducer fan? Really. There may be a drain hose connected to the fan housing that allows the condensate to be drained away. Remove the hose and check for debris blocking the hose. While you are looking at it, make sure your venting slopes to either the outside or back to the furnace, you may have a build-up of water in the horizontal length of the vent pipe. Hope I helped!

We built an outdoor room and the dryer vent is now "indoors".

you'll have to go to lowes or home depot and buy the rigid vent pipe not the flex type. Figure up the elbows and straight pcs. Usually vent pipe is 4,6,8 So make sure you get the correct size. Now as far as going through an existing interior since the vent pipe will be larger than the wall studs you want be able to go through the walls unless you have 6in. stud walls and the vent pipe for a dryer is usually 4in. I think. If you do have 6in interior walls you can run through them but make sure it's interior walls instead of outside wall interior walls usually dont have insulation. If you can't go through the walls your next option is simply through the each floor and out the roof or out the wall. Build a square chaise around the vent with 2x4 lumber, drywall and finish.Be careful if you go through the walls you may have to reroute wiring and water pipes.

We have been having trouble with our airconditioner since moving into our home. We switched AC technicians and found a very simple problem. The dryer vent is directly behind the AC unit and is clogging up...

put an extension elbow on the pipe that exits the house and route it away from the condenser on the A/C but dont let the pipe extension get excessively long or your clothes wont dry as efficiently

I have a Ruud Achiever 90 plus furnace that will not ignite

Again is this a spark or a glow coil? If it is a glow coil look at the coil and see if there is a crack or white spot on it. If so it needs to be replaced.
