If were talking ice, melt it with a hair dryer, or torch. If it's the whole unit is frozen, your defrost is not working, and you will need to replace the defrost board, or the thermostat for the defrost mechanism. If the unit's fan froze meaning it won't work only the compressor, then the fan died, and you'll need to replace the motor.

Ruud achiever 10 froze up but the fan works but not getting cool air flow through house. what is causing this?


The most common things that will cause a system to freeze up are:
1. Dirty air filters
2. Dirty evaporator coil
3. Indoor fan motor not running
4. Blocked/restricted return air flow
5. Low on refrigerant charge ( most common)

I would start with the filters. When the system is froze up, turn off the "cool" and just have the fan set to on. Make sure there is no more ice anywhere, turn the system back on and check your air flow throughout the house. If it feels normal, then filters, return, and fan should be good. The outside unit will have warm to hot air coming out of the fan if the charge is good enough, but that's not a perfect way to check, you will need gauges and a temp reader with knowledge of super-heat and sub-cooling to check the charge the right way. Hope this helps and good luck!

Hello, I have a Ruud Silhouette II Plus 2 gas furnace installed in my garage. This is the first time that I've had a gas furnace (living on my own) so I am unsure of how it actually works. One thing...


If you have gas furnace, the outside unit will not come on unless you have dual fuel/ gas and heat pump. If you can look at wires in thermostat, if you have no wires going to O or B then you don't have heat pump. Normal tstat wiring for gas furnace and air conditioner. R,W,G,Y and maybe C.

My Goodman gsh103301ab. The fan in the outside unit will not come on. The heat is still coming out the the vents but, just don't think that sounds right. Is this suppose to happen?


If it's in cool mode, the outside fan definitely should run to remove the heat. If it's heat mode the outside fan will start only when pressure build up. If it's problem with condenser fan definitely the breaker or fuse will be blown when the amphs increased.

Jan 12, 2010 - My air handler fan (american Standard #TWE065E13FBO) works during a/c operation but not during heating operation. Checked continunity through the the thermo sw and throught the heating coils...


Hi,
You need to check if the air handler fan running.Suppose if you donot see it then, check to see if the fan on the outside unit is running. If the fan on the outside unit is not running either, check to make sure that the breakers for the furnace/air handler and the air conditioner are on. Also if the breaker is not tripped, then the problem may be your thermostat, the furnace/air handler control board, or the wires between the furnace/air handler and the thermostat.

Let us know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Is it normal for fan on outside unit to be on while on heat mode


Yes, it is normal with a heatpump, you run the outside unit in cooling and heating.
It is also normal when the outside unit goes into defrost for the outdoor fan to shut off during the defrost mode and to see steam coming out of the outside unit, while it's melting the frost or ice, then the fan will come back on.

Heat pump fan does not run when house heat is on


The outside fan should be running except when the Heatpump goes in to defrost mode. Then the fan stops with the compressor running and it switches the reversing valve to heat up the outdoor coil. That should last about 5 min and you may see steam come off of the outdoor coil. That's normal.
Is the compressor running? It's possible that it's stuck in defrost or the fan simply died. I hope this helps.

Ac problems


Hello from KOOLBREEZES, this is a simle problem and easy to fix. You have 2-lines going to / from your outside unit. a SMALL COPPER -line and a LARGE COPPER line with insulations. The fat line is suppose to have moisture on it wheres it,s not insulated which tells you you have enough refrigerant gas comming back to he compressor but if its dry you,re low on freon and need a charge or the outside condenser is dirty and not getting rid of enough heat!
