Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Just moved into a 40 year old house that has an RUUD model UGPH-07EAMGR furnace. Went to check the filter (which of course was loaded), and it was just sitting over the insertion slot. Suspect someone put the wrong size in (measures 25X16X1). Can someone tell me the proper size filter for this unit. Found the specs for the UGLH version and it says two 12X20, but that seems too small. The slot width measures 15'' across.

The duct work on the return air can be made to accommodate any size of filter and it may not be the size the furnace takes. Some installers can cut a slot in the outside of the duct and put the filter there, bypassing the manufacturers method of mounting. I would measure the slot or mounting and see what comes close.

SOURCE: Ruud Furnace won't turn on

Take of the access panel on the furnace and look for a wiring diagram either on the back of the panel or inside the housing. There will be a diagnostic chart on it that will give you a hint what 2 flashes mean. I think it is a "no Ignition" code. If it is, with the access panel off and the door switch taped in the closed position, the furnace will try to start if the thermostat is calling. You want to look at the control module to see if it is flashing, then you should notice a small fan that pushes out the combustion products start to turn. Then if you look in a small view port, you should see an orange glow followed by a clicking noise at the gas valve. Then you should notice a blue flame in the view port. This flame must stay on for 5-6 seconds or the unit will turn it self off. If one of these do not happen, you will need a technician to troubleshoot it. Check to see if all wires and hoses are tight and in place. Make sure your condensate hoses are not blocked and free of water. Make sure there is no blockage in your vent pipe(s). 

 

Let us know what you found.

It sounds like the thermostat is not functioning correctly. Has it been changed recently? I think the green wire is connected directly with red somewhere, maybe touching within the wiring in the wall. Also make sure the thermostat is set to auto not on. Sorry if you knew that but you would be surprised how many people don't.

Ruud 90+ Model UGRA 10EZAJS Trips Out


Check for condensation buildup in the Induction Blower housing. The condensate tubes or canister may be blocked and causing the diaphragm switch to trip the unit out causing the burners to shut down.

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.

Ruud Furnace needs replacement


What part of the country?
How many square feet in the house?
Insulation?
Single pane glass?
Many factors should be considered by a professional.
However if the old unit worked OK, a new 80% 70,000 unit will most likeley replace a 24 year old 60-70% 75,000 unit.
