I have a RUUD UPKA-036jaz heatpump. Anytime the thermostat is set to heat, the reversing valve coil is energized. Even if the unit isn't running. Is that normal?


Most heat pump reversing valves energize in cooling. Does it ever "deenergize". If not its stuck, if it does check programming, may be setup to operate that way. Or possibly wired wrong or wired as straight cool. To answer your question, i dont think that is normal.

Unit set to heat but outside unit fan won't turn on. Outside temp is below freezing. The weird thing is that you unit is putting out heat and not set to emergency heat


If it is a heatpump, the outside unit should not turn on below 35degrees or so. Below that temperature, the unit cannot effeciently exchange heat. When the outside temperature is low, the system automatically switches over to auxillary heat which uses the same heating elements as emergency heat.

Smell like a electrical smell ocassionaly coming


Its probably getting hot so you might smell the components heating up. I would try to if possible clear up some space and try cleaning the unit with a air can. Try to get dust that builds up over time

Ruud heatpump with electrice heat backup


Sounds like one or more of the following -

1) the thermal fuse for each of the elements have melted
2) the elements themselves have broken and opened
3) Heat sequencers have failed
4) One or more fuses inside the heater have failed (if fuses were installed from the factory.).

Items 1 and 2 are indications of poor airflow through the unit for some reason (dirty filter, closed vents, dirty evaporator/buildup of dirt/dust on evaporator.)

Burning Rubber smell coming from fridge


try taking the bottom panel off and vacuming all the dust on the coils. The dust may be heating up and burning. The coils are usually at the bottom of the fridge. Check to see if the fan is running also.

RUUD HVAC UNIT - HEAT STRIPS COME ON WITH THE A/C


What you are talking about I think are the strip heaters in the Air Handler this must be a Heat Pump system right??? If so please check your thermostat and make sure it is not in EMRGY HEAT mode.. One other note there is a 2 stage bulb system inside the stat if it is too cold outside and the heatpump on its own cant keep up with the call for heat the 2nd bulb closes and turns on the heater as a supplumnetal heat also these will come on or should come on when the unit goes into defrost.. plz let me know what it is you are trying to test and i can walk you thru it.. Also need a model # off the A/H to get a Wiring diagram

Heater problem model PHK 080-1


THE BURNING SMELL IS NORMAL. BEFORE HEATING SEASON OPEN ALL DOORS AND TURN THE HEAT UP AND LET RUN TILL ALL DUST IS BURNT OFF. IF BLOWER IS NOT COMMING ON NOW. THERE ARE 2 TIME DELAY RELAYS, AND ANOTHER RELAY FOR "FAN ONLY OPERATION". ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT THE PROBLEM BEFORE REPLACING AN EXPENSIVE MOTOR.
