Rudd gas furnace will not come on

This is a 2005, Rudd Achiever Super quiet 80. It has stopped working. When I turn the circuit breaker on and off, the fan comes on for a couple of minutes and then shuts off. Last week it did the same thing and then itdecided to work fine until today. It did the exact same thing last year, when a i called a technician to come out, just before he arrived it started working fine again, so he checked it with his meters, etc and all was well and he could not see anything wrong, until he shook the wires that are in the furnace, it then would start and but off and on when he shook the wires, so he crimped the wires for a better connection and said that he hoped it worked. It worked for many months and I thought the problem was solved, but it is not. I think that it is going to be a cold Sunday night.

Thanks for any help you may have.

Post the model number of the furnace.


Then take the cover off the burner compartment of the furnace. Turn the thermostat up and carefully observe the sequence of events which occurs.

The beginning of solving furnace problems is careful observation of what is happening.

Rudd Model number is UGLO-07EAMER

It is not working agian this morning. The furnace will not come sometimes for a long time, then it will decide to start. It is very difficult for a service man to find the problem, because it may be working again by the time they arrive.

Lights

One light is on and one is flashing and the furnace will not start.

Sorry I can't be of help, but you don't follow the directions provided.

Instead you describe a random series of events which you think are significant.
