Ruud heating/ac unit blowing only cold air in heating mode

Ruud model# URGG-07N48JKR mfd in 03/89 is blowing only cold air when in heat mode. Is this a single phase heat pump? I changed t-stat (Hunter model# 44360) and believe I wired correctly. 4 wires:
1) T1 to T1
2) G to G
3) RH and RC jumpered together
4) W1 on old t-stat to W/B on new t-stat

Switches on back set to HP(believing I have a heat pump) and HG (fan works fine in HG)

Still only cold air blows when in heat mode. Any advice??
thank you!

Do you have gas or electric heat. If you have gas then you do not have a heat pump. You should in most cases have a red,yellow, white, and green wires coming to the thermostat. R should go to rc/rh G should go to green Y should go to Y and w should go to W. Also the switches on back should be switched to non heat pump and gas rather than electric. Hope this helps.

Ruud heat pump is not heating.


You may have a problem with the reversing valve. How cold is your location? Do you also have electric back-up heat available in case of extreme temperatures?

I have a RUUD gas pack unit.....when you turn on the heat, the blower does not blow any air out of the vents while on "auto". If you put it on "on" it blows cold air out of the vents. What is wrong?


Sounds like the thermostat is hooked up wrong. If the ac doesnt work right its in the thermostat programming or the wiring. Hope this helps good luck

What type of run capacitor do I need for a Ruud AC model UPNJ-031JAZ (outside unit)


Looks like it should be a 35/3 370VAC. If it is not legible on the old capacitor read the data plate on the fan motor and compressor. These should say "uf" or "mfd" rating. Good Luck!!

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.

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.
