SOURCE: Honeywell Gas Furnace

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.

SOURCE: Ruud achiever 90 plus gas furnace

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.

SOURCE: Rudd Achiever Plus - Fan runs 24/7

it does sound like a limit switch to me as well. Make sure the fan switch on your thermostat is set to "auto" and not "on"

SOURCE: ruud achiever 90 plus furnace will not start with door on.

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.

What is the AFUE of my Rudd Achiever 90 Plus with model number UGRA-07EMAES


Per Rudd's website and also as the name implies, the min rating is 90. The 90+ can be as high as 93 but is stated as "plus" to cover the many possible installation scenarios which will impact overall efficiency of the unit.

Rudd achiever 90 plus. does not ignight with top cover on...without cover it works fine


Most likely a venting issue, does this have 1 pipe or 2 pipes? if it has 2 you can try it with the inlet pipe disconnected to see if there is a restriction somewhere in the pipe. It may also be in the exhaust pipe, although you don't need to run it with this pipe disconnected because you can vent the flue gases into the home. How old is this system? Has it worked fine prior to this issue?

Rudd Achiever series model RQNJ-AO42JK 000 mfg


Turn the thermostat as low as it will go and have someone stand out side, they should here the condensor fan and compressor come on at the same time. They are two distinctive sounds so you should
be able to tell if the compressor is running.

If nothing happens and you are skilled with electrical
you can turn power off and remove the electrical
cover to the outside unit. Restore power and carefully
push in the contactor, if the fan and compressor
starts you have a thermostat or low voltage problem.

If just the outdoor fan runs on any attempt, more than likely you need a new capacitor.

Take the front panel off the air handler and look for a heat element. You should notice controls and relays with larger wiring to it. It may not have any heat but you can add it.

Replace Rudd Achiever 10 ???


if the fan motor outside let go it could overheat the compressor which he should have known before he replaced the motor. also there is no way of knowing if there is enough freon in the system if the compressor does not start,your best bet is to get another repairman as a second opinion

Rudd Achiever A/C float switch is clogged.


If the pump was bad the switch is supposed to shut down the ac so the water damage won't occur. You most likely have a bad drain.
