Check outside unit to see if it is working. If fan is blowing outside put your hand over unit to see if air is warm. If outside unit is running and air is cool. Low on gas or compressor not running. You need to call a service tech to check it out. Also check the brreaker on outside unit. Russ

    may also be the disconnect/breaker/fuses near the outdoor unit many such have a manual switch arm or a breaker switch, or a reversible circuit disconnect. Be certain both the outdoor fan AND the compressor are running. You may also have a bad definite purpose contactor, basically a relay controlled by the thermostat. with the power to the outdoor unit OFF have someone work the tempurature on the thermostat up and down a few times while you listen to the outdoor unit. Should be a very noticeable click. no click? no compressor? no outdoor fan? no WARM air from the outdoor unit? call a tech

Ruud 90 plus will not blow hot air


My Ruud is a different model, so this may not work. Remove the cover to the burners. Look on the left side for a small rubber hose going to a metal cylinder. Remove the hose and blow through it to remove any moisture. Replace the hose and see if the burners start up.

If you have gas furnace, the outside unit will not come on unless you have dual fuel/ gas and heat pump. If you can look at wires in thermostat, if you have no wires going to O or B then you don't have heat pump. Normal tstat wiring for gas furnace and air conditioner. R,W,G,Y and maybe C.

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 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.

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

How do I clean the flame sensor rod for a Ruud Silhouette II furnace, approximately 7-8 years old?


disconnect the power. the flame rod is located at the end of the last burner. Gently remove it from its cradle and use a pencil eraser or a piece of scotch brite pad. If it doesnt allow the gas valve to stay opened after that, you should replace it

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.
