The Rudd company has been in the business of manufacturing cooling, heating, and water heating products since the 1950’s. Rudd is one of the largest manufacturers in the country, and designs products for residential and commercial use.
Although the products are designed to work efficiently and last for a long time, problems can arise with any heating or cooling system and at some point, you could have Rudd furnace problems. If you are experiencing problems with your system, and want to check things out yourself, you should take some necessary precautions first.
Before you check out any potential problems on a heating or cooling system, you should always shut off the gas and electricity to prevent accidents or injury, and to keep from damaging your system. If you’re having a problem getting the furnace to ignite, it’s usually a question of having the ignitor replaced.
You could also have a problem with the ignitor going out more than it should be. This could be a result of improper handling of the ignitor. It could also be that the ignitor that was installed, wasn’t designed for the furnace you own, so it would have to be replaced.
Additional Rudd furnace problems regarding the ignitor not glowing, could be cause by a control board problem within the furnace, or a faulty switch in the system. Occasionally, when the furnace is turned on for the first time once the cooler weather hits, it might run for awhile, then shut down itself for no apparent reason.
This could be an issue with the thermostat, but it could be something involving the capacitor. You can remove it and have it tested, but if you’re not the mechanically inclined type and are afraid of messing things up even more, you should call an authorized technician to check your furnace.
Although your Rudd furnace is designed to last, once in awhile, you’ll have a problem that will that will cause you to have a fit. If you have troubleshooting experience, you can sometimes determine the problem yourself, and generally it’s something like a faulty switch. You can check things out yourself, but if you’re unsure about what to do, call an expert in to get your system working in top notch condition again.
