Unit not working correctly. The unit worked for the winter, few days ago I turn on the AC and noticed that it wasn't cooling like it should.


It's could be the board or a heat relay. See if you have 24 volts on "x2" im assuming, emergency heat when in cool mode if so it's the board. Or unhook black or x2 or your emergency heat from board and run unit in cool. If heat stays on its a relay

My heat unit will not blow hot air unless we go outside and hit a button on the back bottom of the unit. Once we do that it will blow hot air for that cycle. when it is time for it to come on it is cold...


If it does not have a furnace or heating elements for heating, then it is a heat pump, which is rare for a central AC system, but makes sense of the fact that it blows warm air when you reset the pressure switch, which may indicates freon pressure charge problem if your AC system has a reverse valve and uses freon to for heating (heat Pump).

Do you get heating when outside unit runs? if you do, check freon pressure levels and top up to required pressures. The button you depress is a pressure reset switch ... that is if your AC system is a heat pump ... which, as pointed above, it is not common for central ACs.

Hunter thermastat, model 44860 not working


Is the compressor running? is the outside unit clean and free from debris? does this unit work in the heating mode during the winter, and is it still capable of that now.

Uotside unit blowing cool air but hot on the inside


It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.

Ruud gas pack has stopped heating.


Could be a faulty thermostat, (referring to the furnace\heater. As far as the A.C., you must have a dual thermostat with a switch for A.C. and Heating. Is the thermostat digital or mercury bulb? As for the A.C. it sounds like it is going off on high discharge pressure. Is the cooling fan running that cools the condenser? It must be spinning freely or it may be starting and because it is partially seized, it will cut off with a high current draw. Anyways, the condenser must be clear of any debris, no shrubs around it. The compressor could be bad and trying to start but goes off on overload because it isn't starting. It's start capacitor could be bad and not giving it that extra boost on start up which is what a start capacitor does. Good luck.

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
