Ruud Furnace Repairs
If you're looking for help fixing your Ruud Furnace, look no further! Our comprehensive Ruud Furnace repair guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and maybe show you how to repair your appliance.
Ruud manufactures appliances that homeowners have come to trust. Even a trustworthy appliance requires occasional maintenance or repair, however. If you’re in need of Ruud appliance repair from experienced professionals, your local Appliance Helper can help.
Ruud Furnace not heating
The igniter gets very hot and glows bright orange to light the gas burner. If the igniter fails or cracks, the furnace won’t heat. To determine if the igniter is faulty, remove the igniter and inspect it for cracks. If the igniter is cracked, replace it. If the igniter is not cracked, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.
Ruud Furnace is noisy or loud
The blower wheel blows air out of the furnace and through the house. The blower wheel is attached to the blower motor shaft with a set screw. If the set screw is loose, the blower wheel will wobble on the motor shaft, and the wheel will be noisy as it turns. Check the set screw to ensure that it is properly tightened. Next, inspect the wheel for damage. If the blower wheel is damaged, replace it.
Ruud Furnace starts then stops
The flame sensor monitors the burner to detect whether or not a flame is present. If the flame sensor is defective, it might fail to detect a flame. If the flame sensor does not detect a flame, the control board will shut off voltage to the gas valve to prevent the furnace from heating. Sometimes, if the flame sensor is dirty, it will fail to detect a flame. Try cleaning the flame sensor with a fine abrasive pad. If the furnace still doesn’t heat, replace the flame sensor.
Ruud Furnace blower not running
The blower motor blows air through the return vent, past the heat exchanger, and into the home’s venting. First, make sure that power is getting to the motor. If power is getting to the blower motor, but the motor does not run, the motor may be burned out. If the blower motor is burned out, replace it. If the blower motor hums, check the blower fan to ensure that it spins freely. If the blower fan is unobstructed but does not spin freely, replace the blower motor.
Ruud Furnace blower runs all the time
The control board has relays that regulate the voltage to each component in the furnace. If the relay that controls the blower motor fails while it is closed, it will send continuous voltage to the blower motor, causing the motor to run continuously. If the control board is at fault, replace it.

Ruud is a good brand for Canadians who are looking to save on their monthly utility bills with a furnace upgrade. Ruud furnaces will deliver the energy efficiency that they’re looking for at affordable pricing options.
I am nothing short of satisfied. Ever since I purchased this unit that is six years ago. My initial unit kept on leaking water making my house messy and one had to be alert always. I always called the technician to do repairs who later on recommended to me the Ruud unit. It’s highly efficient without too much cost of electricity. Its price was also quite affordable. Its installation was quite easy. Winters are no longer stressful for us. Ruud has been the furnace I’ve come across so far.
My Ruud furnace is installed in the basement of the house. It is however too noisy and sounds more like a manufacturing room. When purchasing the sales representative assured me that the unit wasn’t any noise. So I thought this was enough reason to raise alarm. On calling the customer care service, they told me otherwise, that this was a usual occurrence. I still have to bear with the noise because I’m not in a position to purchase another right now.
The most unreliable furnace I’ve ever come across. It has failed me in over three winters in which we literary froze. The first failure came when the circuit board had issues. The repairman has already had frequent visits to my house more than the mailman and pizza delivery man comes. I would have rather kept my old furnace instead of getting this Ruud which has been nothing short of a nuisance and less performance. I’m quite sure when replacing it I will not have Ruud among my options.
I’ve owned my furnace for 8 years and I believe I’m still counting. I have never encountered any issues with the machine and I tend to think or negative reviews are all propaganda either by competitors whose intention is to bring down its reputation. Its price is also quite affordable in comparison with other heat furnaces of the same specifications and lower specifications across different brands. I can never compare this to my initial Amana heat furnace which was serviced as frequently as every two months and would definitely recommend this heat furnace to anyone looking to purchase a furnace anytime soon.
