If the fan outside is running then feel the compressor outside or listen to it if you can notice that the compressor is running the same time the outside fan is running also.

it could be that the compressor is not running.

but if you can notice that the compressor is making a different sound as it turn on, then the compressor is running but not cooling, then you could have a leak problem. there is no or little refrigerant in the system.

if you have a leak, please contact your local repair man to do it.

We have 2 furnaces in our house, both on the braeburn 3200 model thermostats.


If you have a dual fuel system - gas/heat pump the heat pump should lock out at around 41 degrees depending on what the outside lockout sensor is set at. It may be that both the heat pump and furnace could be running at the same time if the outside lockout isn't working or there could be a problem with the thermostat. Best bet would be to have a service tech check it out. However if you want to check it out here are the terminals Terminations: R,Y1,Y2,W2,E,G,O,B,L,C. W2, E and B are the heating terminals for 2nd stage heat and emergency heat. First stage heat, compressor Y1 with B (reversing valve on heat pump) energized together. 2nd stage W2 energized for gas or electric heat . No power to Y1 and B when W2 is energized if gas. E can be energized with Y1 and B if you have electric heat or if you switch over to emergency heat, E will be energized.

Is the condenser inside the unit


In a window unit the condenser is in the unit and is at the back of the outside section. With a split system or whole house cooling unit the condenser is always outside. The condenser compresses the cooling gas after it picks up heat from the inside evaporator, and forces the heated gas through a coil with a fan blowing through the coil to drive out the heat. A gas can be compressed, but the amount of heat it contains remains constant. A compressed gas will be hotter than non compressed.

My gas pack won't light


First, the thermostat white wire is the wire that initiates the furnace to start. When you select heat on your thermostat the tech should get a 24-28 volts between the white wire and common on the thermostat wire in the furnace. If you do not get the required voltage, there is a break in the wire from the furnace to the thermostat that needs to be tracked down and eliminated.

I have a Mitsubishi air conditioner GA35VA system. 1. HEAT: If outside temp is bellow (aprox.) 16C, no heat is produced. the system starts. The outside compressor starts to work but stops after some...


Your problem is outside, i can see why he would say it is a sensor problem ...But perhaps it is your fan not turning at the correct speed. example if on a really hot day your air conditioning cuts out it could be your pressure is too high which would trip your compressor. What refrigerant does this system use? and is this a new installation? or is it an old installation new problem? Do something for the MUZ-GA35VA external device open the top when u have another failure and on the board there should be a particular type of flashing pattern, that "should" be fairly accurate in diagnosing the problem.

RUUD heat pump system does not cool properly.


With a heat pump system there are always going to be a back up heat strip inside the Air Handler.

If you detect a faint humming in the Condenser call your local service company and ask them to come and replace your capacitor in the condenser. The humming is from the contactor engaging but not being able to start the compressor due to not having the required Microfarads to start it.

Let me know if this helps

Hi- Can not tell if my unites are straight cool / heat or a heat pump.


if you look inside the condenser unit outside,see if you see the big reversing valve,if not it is a straight cool,heat, the heat strip ins in the air handler so you would have to take the side panel off and look for the heat stripe,my the way heat pumps also have a aux.heat stripe just in case it does not get cold enough outside,hope this helps you-mike

Ruud heat pump question


Does the air handler take a minute or two to start, this would be normal so that it doesn't blow cool air into the house before the unit is warmed up. If not could be the fan relay is weak and needs replacing. As far as the outside unit it sounds like you need to check the refrigerant. In cooling they are 70/150 psi. This should be checked in cooling mode, once you turn it to heating mode the pressures switch bring heat inside the house instead of out. I hope this helps.

Non-working outside unit


If your unit is blowing heat inside and it's not a heat pump. It will be most likely electric heat in your case.
Sounds like you have a split unit meaning the condenser is outside and the cooling and the heat features are inside or under your home.If your Rudd is a heat-pump the outside unit will cycle/blow cold air outside in winter and hot air will cycle/blow outside during the summer season. Now, if for some reason the heat  is not coming on inside the house, would be the only reason that you would need to be concerned. Being a heat relay or breaker of could cause that problem. Hope this helps you, Sea Breeze
