Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The fan on the Ruud furnice unit runs all the time but the Ruud ac unit is not kicking on . I know nothing about any of this but would like some Ideas what I might check. I went outside and could not find any kind of breaker on the outside unit. I do have a breaker inside and I turned it off and waited then turned it back on ..no change...


Answers :

Some Ruuds have a red rubber cap reset button on the bottom of the unit or inside. Usually the fan quits and trips the switch. Or look at the metal run cap with 3 leads on it, if it looks bulged(concave on top) and not flat and sunk in, replace that and ur good to go. Let me know. Please pull the power disconnect if you attack the cap, and write down what leads come off which terminals. [email protected]
