ruud furnace. error...

ruud furnace. error code says pressure switch stuck closed (4 blinks). I was trying to find out where that switch is. We have had high winds and at least one note suggested that might have tripped the switch.

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the appliance? Have you gotten error messages before?

15 yrs. first problem ever had with it.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is easy. if not, will get service here.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Furnace isn't used that much as we mostly use wood stove.

Pressure switch will have a rubber hose from vent motor housing and look like one of these.

general model is Silhoutte II. Oh, I see, in burner compartment. Let me go look again. Also, this is a propane burning unit.

Model will be on label on left or right inside panel in burner compartment. Will be something like RGPH07EAUER
