Question about Heating & Cooling
My Cruud, I mean Ruud heat pump shuts off the compressor after 15 to 20 minutes in the heat mode. I have not tried it in A/C mode. The condensor and evaporator fan continue to run but the compressor stops. The contactor stays engaged and there is 240 volts at all 3 compressor connectors. Could I have a bad compressor, or maybe low Freon? any help would be appreciated.
You may have cottonwood on your compressor. Before you spend any money, do two things. Rinse off your compressor to clear any cottonwood, and check your filters, they may need to be replaced. Hope that helps!

First turn it to cool and see how cold the big cooper line is if it is not real cold you could be low on freon but if it is cold your compressor is bad
