I have been having issues with my Ruud furnace and narrowed it down to the
pressure switch being bad. I have one on order. In the meantime, can I
bypass the switch somehow to avoid going down and whacking the switch to
kick the blower on?!?
Its *STILL* a safety device, and as such should *NEVER* be bypassed, or
defeated in *ANY* way.
If you had called a legitmate contractor, instead of DIY, then you would be
comfortable by now, because the contractor most probably carries a direct
OEM replacement on the truck.
I hope you didn't spend a bunch of money on that switch, because if thats
not the problem, or just a symptom, its not gonna be returnable, and your no
better off than when you started.
BTW...I don't care if its what you want hear or not... *my*
home is comfortable.
I dunno, but I hope the arc had a properly vented fosile fuel (what the heck
is a fosile?) heat source. Otherwise, Noah would have to be down there
whacking on the pressure switch. You have any idea how hard it is to get a
contractor to the ark when the whole damn planet is flooded? I mean, really!
Bypass the safety, and you risk having a one way trip by morge wagon. I'd
seriously suggest not bypassing the safety switch.
Especially on a fossil fuel furnace, as those produce monxide. Even more
than "fosile" whatever the heck that is.
