Hello, this sounds like a flame sensor issue or high limit switch problem. First, turn off power to the Furnace and remove flame sensor, it is a small metal rod on the opposite side of the igniter, use some steel wool to clean it up and reinstall it. If that does not solve the problem then inspect you filter, blower wheel for dust or dirt, also make sure the blower motor is running at the proper speed. I hope this helps.

My Ruud silhouette 2 furnace, fan will not come on. If I go and remove bottom cover and replace, the heater will work, until later, when I have to go remove the cover and replace it again.


You need to clean the flame sensor. Follow the orange wire on the left side of burner, remove with a long 1/4" nut driver (magnetic for reinstalling) the take some Emory cloth or fine sand paper, and reinstall. Should work now!

My ruud silhouette turns on, the burners turn on, but I don't think the fan is working, within 10 seconds, the burners turn off and then it won't come on again.


Your system has a safety control called a flame rod. It is located in the flame path of the last burner that lights up, either far right or far left. It looks like a stick (or Rod) and has one wire going to it. Take a green scrub pad and rub the rod after it has cooled. Check all connections at the circuit board and any ground wires going to the frame of the heating unit. There should be an error code that flashes after 2 or 3 attempts at ignition and a chart on the wiring diagram that may assist you in the repair.

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.

Gas furnace, main burner ignites the other 2 don't. then shutdn.


Between the burners is a small rail in the pressed steel where the flame runs across to light the other burners and it sounds like there is dirt or debris in the step over rails causing the problem. You will need to use some compressed air on those rails to clear them out. Once the rails are clear the other two burners should ignite right away.

Ruud silhouette #UHDG-07EAUER won't heat house


Cleaning the flame sensor has nothing to do with blower motor not turning on. You either one of the following problems 1 bad cap for motor. 2 bad motor. 3 bad limit on blower housing or 4 a bad board. You will need a volt meter to check for these problems. Try seeing if the fans runs with unit of and fan switch turned to on. Also does motor hummmm. Is motor cage free ( can check by manually turning) If motor doesnt humm and the cage is free wheeling then you will need to find out if you have power going to the motor. If you find out that you do then you will need to change blower motor. If you do not have power then you will need to check limit with continuity tester on volt meter. If that checks fine only 1 thing can be wrong and that is the board.

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.
