Hi Jerry, yes, whenever you see either end of a capacitor bulging and or leaking fluid, the capacitor is bad and needs to be replaced. It may still be operating the motor ok, but it will eventually fail and the fluid is also highly corrosive. Simply match up the proper voltage and uf to get the proper replacement. Example: 5uf 370 volt or 7.5uf 370 volt or 10uf 440 volt. The uf stands for microfarads. Hope this helps!

Ruud furnace wont kick on unless I do it manually with the switch on the unit. Even if I do that it turns off after a few min? Blower Bar or motor?


What kind of Fuel?-- Can you tell me what kind of ignition your furnace has?

I installed a run capacitor for my blower motor on my RUUD ac model UGPH10EBRJR. now it runs all the time. I even disconnected my thermostat and it kept running. is it my thermostat? or something else


An open limit switch may make the fan run all the time. Try disconnecting the Green wire @ the furnace...if that does the trick, then either the thermostat fan relay is stuck, or there is a short between the Red & Green wires somewhere in the thermostat wire.

You can hear furnace running but the blower never comes on.


do you mean the inside blower or the outside unit blower ... actually the problem might be a similar part in either case ... the blower motor has a capacitor mounted on it or near it ... it will be marked something like 160 uf at 200vac or similar . it will have wires attached or plugged into it .. the capacitor is what gives the blower motor a signal to tell it which way to start turning ... once the blower is running then the capacitor is no longer needed ... its only used to get the motor started ... if its bad then the motor will hum but wont turn .. if you manually spin the fan then the motor will take off in the direction you spun it (dont get hit ) .. a new capacitor is not expensive .. you need the numbers off the old "starting" capacitor or just take it with you to the parts place to match it up .. you may be able to order it from Ruud ... a HVAC repair person would likely be able to bring one with him for repair if you give him the numbers off the part or the model number of the furnace .. make sure the blower turns freely by hand (with power off) .. if not it may need bearings lubed .. ..

Need original blower motor and cap. specs for Ruud Deluxe 90+


The motor specs can change from time to time depending on what the manufacturer has in mind.

If it has locked up check first and make sure the squirrel cage fan has not moved and is binding on the housing.

If it is clear to turn and wont turn,, the bearings must be bad, and this is probably NOT a problem with the motor being "wrong". Its just the way things are made.

Contact a RUUD distributor for the specs you request.

I need to change blower motor


See if you can move it freely by hand. If so, change the fan capacitor. If tight, try oiling the motor.

RUUD model URGG-10E31JKR GASS PACK purge fan and main blower


if the purge fan wont start on its own see if there is a capactor attached. if not replace it. more than likely you cannot lube the bearings in your blower motor. the new fans are not serviceable.

I have a Ruud Silhoulette Model #UGPJ-12EARJR Furnace. My Carrier A/C unit comes on but the fan blower motor in the furnace does not.


Could be a bad fan control board or the motor. Need to see if you have power to the motor from the board
