Ruud furnace problem
I have Ruud gas furnace 75k btu that runs great without fresh air pipe connected but runs intermitently when the pipe is reattached..Pipe clear of blockages..<15 ' of pipes. Any idea what is happening

Pressure switch failing. Ventor fan slowing down. Need a manometer to check the draft thru the furnace and rating of the switch. May have an inlet screen where the pipe attaches to the furnace/burner box with debris in it slowing down the draft. Some Carriers and Lennox do.

Could also be recirculating the exhaust into the intake. Have seen that happen more then a few times due to someone cutting off the vents or placing something in front of them to block the view of the pipes.
