You must first remove the blower compartment panel. The filter should be in there. However, since this unit is in a crawl space you may have a return air filter grill. Look at your return grill. Does it have a filter? If not does it have latches so that you can open it? If so measure the opening and install a new filter there. I hope this helps. Please don't forget to give me a Fixya rating.

I have a RUUD Achiever heat pump. Where does the filter go? I don't see a slot for it. I can't even tell what size filter it takes, since there is no defined slot.


it would be at the air handler portion of things (the unit inside) you might have to take off the lower door to access it it would be located at the bottom of the unit or somewhere in the duct work before that point look for spots that say airflow and will show an arrow--->

Ruud Achiever 10 heat pump - outside fan won't shut off


Definately get this checked out. Some thing has shorted just enough to let voltage "Feed back" and keep the fan running. Could be capacitor, wires rubbed through each other, etc. A reset is a safety that is used when there is an overcurrent or over pressure situation. No reset set for this situation.
There is always an outside chance that if you touch the unit while standing on wet ground, you may get shocked. I firmly believe that something is allowing power to the fan in a feedback condition so don't let this go as it may cause damage to other parts.

Good Luck and let me know how you make out on this.

Trying to change out my thermostat to a programmable one but the wire colors don't match up, what color wire does what on the Rudd Achiever series?? green/brown/yellow/white/blue


You should check the terminals where the other end is connected, there is no guarantee that the installer followed a wire color code. There should be a diagram in the HVAC unit. Normally, you have the power wire from the XFMR, a wire for the heat, a wire for the AC, and a wire for the fan.

A different smell coming from the heat ducts. I can't figure where the smell is coming from. I have Ruud achiever plus 90 furnace.


There can be several causes for odors in a unit. If you have just started turning the air on, you may have an issue with too much moisture in the coil and supply plenum causing mold to accumulate and grow. Also ducting can come apart or be chewed open by critters allowing air to be drawn in from the attic or crawl space depending on your configuration. These are the typical smells.

How do I change the filter in my Ruud Achiever series


I'd look in one of 2 areas.

1. often there is a central return in the house. This is the place where the air gets pulled back to the unit and is likely very close to your thermostat. Check for a filtered louvered grill there and see if your filter is located here. If so, you can access the filter by opening the filter frame with a screwdriver or even a coin.

2. Otherwise I would expect that your filter is on the return-air side of your air handler (where the blower is) Older models have the filter actually inside the air handler in the blower compartment. Newer models may have a small separate filter door. I'd look in these areas.

hope this helps
