This will depend on what your symptoms are. i would like to discuss this with you over a chat. there are many question i need answers to before i can give you a good answer. i will say at this time, if you are experiencing massive misfiring in multiple cylinders then. i would suggest a look at the valve springs and valve seal as well.

I have a RUDD 14J11SFA air handler i bought in 2006. The blower motor needs to be replaced, for about $1,300. Should I invest in this unit, or just replace it? i do not know replacement cost.

That motor is not going to cost no 1300 dollars unless the windings are made out of gold!!!!!!!!!!!! Shop the motor and get the cheapest price and just drop it in place of old one. It is a relatively inexpensive part and U do not have to know anything about AC to replace it.

Note the wires going to old one and rewire the exact same way and you are good to go.

it should be. but you would need to check with intertherm they make that call. most unit come with a minimum of 5 year parts however who ever put it in and the dealer make final call so its to gray to say sorry if you explain your concern to intertherm they may give you an extended warranty it happens sometimes if customer feels cheated please give me a rating and vote

No cool air coming out of home air conditioner

Unless your compressor is burnt up, you probably don't need a new unit. If it's a 1998 it's not that old and you can get parts, the only thing is it's probably R-22 refrigerant and they must fix the leak in the unit if that's the problem before adding refrigerant and the refrigerant is expensive.. All they have in a heating and cooling system, that needs replaced, are a few parts. Outdoor unit has a fan motor,compressor, capacitors fan and compressor and a contactor. Furnace has a blower motor, capacitor, gas valve, fan and limit or furnace control board, which they still make replacement parts for.
My advice would be to call some more HVAC companies, till you find one, that is willing to fix your unit and not replace it..

I would take this part out and take it to a local mechanical supply house in your area. The service people are very knowledable about heating and a/c parts and they can physically look at the part to see if they have it in stock or if they can order it. good luck

Good luck on that one, I needed one for a job & ended up buying a new fan, got tired of trying to find one. I'd watch for yeard sales. auctions, or even fans on sale at big chain stores like, walmart, home depot, or lowes. Not unusual to see complete fan for $20 -$30. Then use parts , or install entire fan.

Compressor is Down

It depends on how old your system is. A heat pump that is 7 years or older I would recommend replacing the system and not just the compressor. Yes the first company is right in saying that you have to install a higher S.E.E.R. system (assuming yours is less then a 13) that is an EPA law. You can replace just the compressor however, if the system is older then 7 years you will start to have other parts breakdown soon. It's less expensive to replace the compressor but in the long run it is more cost effective to replace the system for both future repair and operating cost reasons. Good luck and don't forget to give me a Fixya rating.

I have a Carrier 8000 weathermaker. Recently the blower motor began to run progressively slower and finally just bogged down. I replaced the motor, but the replacement motor has three speeds (red, blue...

Found system was slowly loosing coolant through a variety of miniscule leaks in rusting part of condenser. Apparently coolant level had dropped sufficiently in the blower repair interval to where the system no longer functioned with adequate efficiency. Bottom line - low coolant level as is the first suggestion in most related ac repair forum sites. I'm buying a Trane, this system is no longer economically feasible to maintain.

Defective Thermostat?

well this is a very subjective question. How mechanically adept are you. If you know where to find the replacement OEM part, then its a mater of taking the control panel apart and replacing the wires one at a time from the old thermostat to the new one. It will have a sensor probe that will need to be routed and attached to the coil somewhere. The same place as the old one. make sure the bulb (if it has one) is not damaged. This may go without saying, but make sure the power is off first.
