my ruud furnace is not working

could be a number of things, fusable link,bad sequencer, broken element burned wires, improperly wired tstat(if recently replaced).
you need a meter and amprobe to diagnose for each 5kw of heat you will be pulling roughly 20 amps i would normally test with power on so im hesitant to advise you to do that. how did you determine you needed an element in the first place?
