If it is a down flow, it will usually be found in the return air plenum just above the blower. You need to remove the front panels and look inside above the blower. You may need to remove a second door to access the blower section. If it is an upflow, remove the bottom door and look alongside the blower where the return air comes in.

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.

My furnace comes on and heates the house for about


There is a limit switch that is likely opening. Be sure your filters are clean and all registers and grilles are open and not obstructed. If the problem continues, you may have a dirty indoor coil or undersized duct work. Some models have a window where you can observe the LED lights. If when the furnace shuts down you see any blinking, you need to count the flashes and we can figure out what the problem is from there.

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.

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

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.
