The model number you listed, UGED-10ERAJS, is that the furnace you currently have or that was replaced earlier? If that is the model of the one that was replaced due to recall. what is current model number on your 90 plus furnace.I will see what I can find out for you
This is the model that I have presently. I want to make a correction: Is the control for the fan on this model different from the control board?
When I heard that this model was also having problems and was having a recall...but one that had expired in around 2004 when the ten year period required for producing replacement parts (or so I was told by the 1st technician for the propane company) and they were no longer honoring the life time warranty. He told me they were only offering several hundred dollars towards a new replacement furnace (only Rheem/Ruud) products in place of the heat exchanger. Is this really the way a "reputable" company like Ruud/Rheem works?
The fan control is built into the IFC board.There is a replacement board available for that unit , but it requires the addition of a flame sensor kit if manufactured before 1994.The cost of the board is around 300.00 and flame sensor kit is around 70.00.As for your heat exchanger, it is still under warranty (lifetime to original owner and 20 years to subsequent owners from date of installation). If not available,Rheem/Ruud will give you a credit towards a new furnace if is determined by a Rheem or Ruud dealer to be defective.If you have been informed by propane company that it is defective,I suggest you have your heating contractor perform combustion and carbon monoxide tests to verify where it is truly defective or not.You could spend 350.00 to 400.00 on a new board and wake up dead one morning.With a unit of this age,I would lean towards replacing the furnace myself.Your contractor will probably charge you as much or more to dismantle the furnace and install he heat exchanger(if available) than you will pay for a new unit.I do recommend pursuing the warranty issue though,I can get you contact numbers if your dealer doesn't want to honor warranty
This should be a good number.If not let me know .(501)646-4311.
