Customer Question
I am getting a...

I am getting a Twinning Fault on my new Ruud furnace. It was working fine during the summer when I was using it for cooling, but now when I turned it on for heating I am getting the Twinning Fault Fault code 20

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

Filter is new. Thermostat setting is fine. The fault stays even if I disconnect the thermstat could it be that the transformer is bad?

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

Yes

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

That's it for now

Got it, thanks - first, make sure there's nothing touching the "twin" terminal on the control board. Can you take a pic of the board and post it please?
