You say you have power but what is the voltage? You said that that you are using a 3 amp fuse so you are referring to a gas unit. Ok, have you checked the safty switch that is located on the blower cabinet, the one that the door sits against to make sure that you have power leaving the switch? Also, on some units, there is a limit switch that come directly off of the above mentioned blower cut off switch that when tripped, will cut main power to the board. Its located on the inducer or on the flu pipe, but mostly on the inducer houseing. Make sure that all your manual reset limits are reset. But check the switch first and then work your way to the limits. This is the only thing left and was probably the probablem before you replaced the board. If you have any more questions, please respond to the thread.

You should check the terminals where the other end is connected, there is no guarantee that the installer followed a wire color code. There should be a diagram in the HVAC unit. Normally, you have the power wire from the XFMR, a wire for the heat, a wire for the AC, and a wire for the fan.

Take the front panel off the air handler and look for a heat element. You should notice controls and relays with larger wiring to it. It may not have any heat but you can add it.

SOURCE: 2 Rheem Protech 500 thermostats, 1 upstair & 1

Have you checked to make sure that all of the supply registers are open, the air filter is clean and nothing is blocking the return air grill?
It almost sounds like you could be cycling on a limit switch.
Usually on gas furnaces, the blower is controled by the onboard controls, in the cooling mode the thermostat will control the blower.
I would be looking past the thermostat, at the furnace it self.
I hope you find this helpful. If you continue to experience problems, please let us know and we will dig deeper. :)

I have not seen an home heating fuel oil tank buried before. Most such oil tanks were standing on legs and outside of the house. If the old oil furnace was where the new gas furnace is, look for the old fuel line hanging loose. It might tell you where the tank was or is.

Turn the thermostat as low as it will go and have someone stand out side, they should here the condensor fan and compressor come on at the same time. They are two distinctive sounds so you should
be able to tell if the compressor is running.

If nothing happens and you are skilled with electrical
you can turn power off and remove the electrical
cover to the outside unit. Restore power and carefully
push in the contactor, if the fan and compressor
starts you have a thermostat or low voltage problem.

If just the outdoor fan runs on any attempt, more than likely you need a new capacitor.

I have a Rudd ultra series 16.0 and I cant get the air to blow hot..I have heat on and "hold at 90" but it wont heat..ac is less than 1 yr old


I am curious if the unit is short cycling. If it is, take the face off of your thermostat and turn the anticipator to .4 and when you can have a tech take an amp draw on your furnace. If it is a new furnace and old thermostat, it may not have been checked with the new install

Rudd Achiever A/C float switch is clogged.


If the pump was bad the switch is supposed to shut down the ac so the water damage won't occur. You most likely have a bad drain.
