Question about Heating & Cooling
My Rudd Achiever plus just stops running. When I power it down and back up, it sounds like it tries to start once, goes off and then does start running. However it does shut down later. It is a propane furnace.
When was the last time you changed your filter. Also the last time you have had it cleaned and checked?

A Make and Model number of the furnace not the thermostat will help but I can walk you thru the operation of a typical furnace. It sounds to me that the burners are igniting properly but the flame sensor is not sensing the flame and shutting down the system. You will need to find the sensor and clean it and check the wire from it to the control board. Typically, the flame sensor is found at one side or the other of the burner box. It is a small probe that the flame hits. Depending upon your model it may have a small wire attached to it leading back to the control. Or it may be part of your auto-pilot assembly. ? At any rate, you will need to get to it and very delicately brush it off. Then inspect the flame channel. This is a trough area where the flame travels to ignite all burners. Over time, they tend to fill with rust and debris. Take a small screwdriver and run the blade down the trough. Inspect the wire that goes from the flame sensor to the control board. Make sure it is not frayed or broken or shorting out and that the connection at the board is good.
Beyond that, it's time for a technician to come.
Let us know the Make and Model of the furnace (found inside the furnace cabinet) and maybe we can help you further.

I have 2 Ruud Achiever 90 Plus UGRK's. Units were install in 2004. One unit flames' out after ignition just prior to the fan kicking in. Confirmed gas value is functional by switching valves. Check wire connections. Could it be the remote sensor or another 24 volt sensor at the IFC that locks out the gas valve?

does the furnace ignite?? your system may not have been lighting and has gone into ignition lockout count the codes of the led lights then remove panel led diagnostic codes are listed there.
if led codes indicate no problem verify capacitor is good and that mtr is getting 115 volts.

I would try to check your return air first, making sure there is no blockage and that your air filters are clean. It almost sounds like when you take the cover off, you are pulling enough air into the system for it to run, but as soon as you close it off, it's not getting enough air flow, therefore, tripping a limit switch inside the furnace. Most furnaces will also have the codes for the flashing lights and what they mean on the inside of the door covers.
