Ruud Furnace Troubleshooting
If you're looking for help fixing your Ruud Furnace, look no further! Our comprehensive Ruud Furnace Troubleshooting guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and show you how to read your model's error codes.
The electrical system that powers your furnace has likely shorted. Reset the circuit breaker that’s associated with your furnace.
The igniter might either be cracked or defective. Check to see if the igniter is cracked and needs replacing. Otherwise, test it with a multimeter for continuity.
The thermostat might be adjusting incorrectly. If your thermostat has an adjustable calibration scale, use it to adjust the heat anticipator. If this doesn’t work, replace the thermostat.
Not blowing hot air?
Either the blower motor is burnt out, or the motor’s connect belt has snapped. See if power is reaching the motor. If it is, but the motor isn’t running, replace the motor. If the motor runs but air doesn’t move, the connecting belt has snapped. Replace the belt.
Blowing too much air?
Your furnace’s blower motor is continually being sent voltage due to a failed relay on the control board. You will have to replace the control board.
The contact that controls the blower motor on your thermostat may be sticking. Use a multimeter to check for continuity. If it appears the thermostat is the issue, replace the part.
Starting and then stopping shortly after?
The flame sensor detects if a flame is present. If it is either defective or dirty, it will not be able to detect a flame. If dirty, use a fine abrasive pad to clean the sensor. If faulty, replace the flame sensor.

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.
