I'm thinking it's hot like that because it's a natural draft unit most likely and is in a confined space. Seeing that it's almost 40 years old if you can, I'd consider budgeting for a replacement and definitely invest in a smoke/CO detector.
I have a ruud furnace that's about 4 yrs old. Recently it has been starting to short cycle. I have checked everything and even changed the filter but it still does the same thing. I have been able to take the door off and it works fine but when I put the door back, it shorts cycles again. What could be the problem?
Every 2 weeks or so, my furnace will not kick on. The heating and air guy has replaced 2 thermostats, control circuit board, cleaned the flame sensor & limits, checked flue pipe and checked for flame rollout. I usually just have to go to the thermostat and make it go down under the temperature and put it back up for it to kick on. Yesterday it would kick on but it wouldn't kick on to the heating cycle. It would kick back off. So I just left it off all night. What could it be?
