Re: furnace

I would guess from the info provided that you only have two wires going to your thermostat which would explain why the fan switch doesn't work on the thermostat. You can bypass the thermostat as a first step in troubleshooting. After that it depends on the type of furnace, standing pilot or electronic ignition...

Re: furnace

It sounds like the thermostat was installed incorrectly..... There is an industry standard color coding of wires, but unfortunatly this is not always followed. The format is Rh and Rc are a red wire (these terminals may be jumped together if you have gas heat), which is 24v hot, W is a white wire, which is 24v common, Y is a yellow wire, which is power to the outdoor A/C unit, and G is green, which turns on the high speed fan. I must assume that your old thermostat would turn the fan on, since you mentioned it above. Your best bet is to check at the furnace to see which wires go to where
Please Note that if you have oil heat the jumper between Rh and Rc should be removed. Rh is power for the heating circuit (usually red), and is connected to the oil burner primary control. Rc is power for the cooling circuit (usually blue) and is connected to the fan relay. I hope this helps

A pair of wires should go to some power source...and pass through the humidisat (not thermostat). The clicking sound you will get whether there is power there or not. Try and trace those wires to a power source off the a little metal unit called a transformer. new home. it should work unless they left the wires off for the owners to hook up...or for some electrician to do the final hook up.
It its a new home, don't be afraid to call the builders. They are expecting you.

Furnace blower blows cold air

It is possible that you did not set the new blower on the proper speed. Black wire is high. Blue is medium. Red is low. If the fan is operating to slow it can run to hot and trip the high limit control. Make sure the filters are clean. When the old motor went bad, the problem might not have been discovered rite away your high limit control might need to be changed.
Also anytime you work on a furnace you can kick up some dust. Always clean the flame sensor.
Good Luck

Commonly outdoor wood boilers use a hot water coil mounted in the ductwork above your furnace. In this application the Ruud furnace is still using its blower assembly to circulate the warm air from the boiler to your home. If this is the case. Have your heating guy install a #50 relay on the furnaces blower motor to activate your much needed humidifier. If this is not the case and your Ruud furnace is totally independent of the boiler. Still install the #50 relay in the furnace and manualy activate the fan only feature on your thermostat.
Good luck

Humidifier won't turn on with furnace fan set to Auto.

There is a devise called a current sensing relay (a little black box that hangs on a blower motor wire that senses current from that wire) If you have such a devise it should hang from the white (common) wire. Loop the wire through twice.
