Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a RUUD Silhouette II and while it was running the thermosat wires hit the top of the unit, there was a spark and it died. I checked all the breakers, but still nothing. When I turn the unit power on I hear a mumming, but nothing turns on. The guy at home depot said it might be the 24V converter, possibly the fuse, but I don't see a fuse anywhere. Thoughts?

Hello CHARLIE Yes that was a 24 volt wire that got shorted 1:The wire must be repaired/replaced.2:The fuse is in the blower/airhandler unit it should be a 3 or 5 amp blade fuse (the one that is in a car) on the curcit board, or a button that poppes up on transformer in the blower unit just push that in to restore low voltage power.

Ruud Silhouette II has power but nothing else.


Sounds like there is a secondary fuse protection, or some wire came off. Did you check for ground?

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.

My ruud silhouette ii gas furnace is blowing regular air. i know nothing about a/c? is it freon?


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

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.

Flashing amber lights


it means that the flame sensor is not sensing a flame. If the flame is present and nice and blue the flame sensor is probaly dirty. Remove the flame sensor and lighty sand it with sandpaper.

You will need to let the indoor fan run for several hours to defrost the indoor coil. it may take 12 hours to defrost you'll know when it's clear when the vents are blowing like usual again. Then run the unit for 5 minuits and check the large copper insulated line going to the outdoor unit. is it cold? if not you need a refrigerant charge. If it is then make sure never to run the unit below 70 degrees and check your air fliter and return duct for blockage of possible collapse. Also you may have a dirty indoor coil chac that and clean the outdoor one as well.
