Question about Ruud UAMB Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Ruud gas pack has stopped heating.

It starts to come on, but only blows cool air, and after only about a minute, it quits blowing anything and stops. It was fine last evening, but the house was 60 degrees this morning at wake-up time. I cut the thermostat off, then back on, but nothing. After the third try, it came on but would cut back off almost immediately. I tried this for several times, then it finally started blowing air, but cool and only for a minute or so before it cut itself off altogether. I just had it serviced, and all the jets were blowing straight ahead, which tells me it would not be a cracked heat exchanger, right? What does it sound like to you guys? Roll out switch, thermostat, ???

Is it spark ignition or a glow coil? Sounds like the ignitor is busted. If it was a roll out switch the fan would stay on trying to cool off the switch.

SOURCE: Ruud gas pack has stopped heating.

Could be a faulty thermostat, (referring to the furnace\heater. As far as the A.C., you must have a dual thermostat with a switch for A.C. and Heating. Is the thermostat digital or mercury bulb? As for the A.C. it sounds like it is going off on high discharge pressure. Is the cooling fan running that cools the condenser? It must be spinning freely or it may be starting and because it is partially seized, it will cut off with a high current draw. Anyways, the condenser must be clear of any debris, no shrubs around it. The compressor could be bad and trying to start but goes off on overload because it isn't starting. It's start capacitor could be bad and not giving it that extra boost on start up which is what a start capacitor does. Good luck.

Rudd acheiver 10 heat pump wont stay cool


did you change the air filter and do not set it below 70,the tstat is not a gas pedal its works like a light switch, on or off, also please don't use your breaker as a switch its a safety device and will be damaged over time,If the unit starts to form ice (and it should never do that)
set the tstat from cool to off and the fan button from auto to fan on,this will speed up the thawing

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

Unit cools for a few minutes then stops cooling. Even fan stops blowing air but the unit remains 'on'


unit may be short of gas. will run for a few mins before low pressure switch turns the compressor off. you will need to get an engineer to check gas pressure

Heating unit blows warm air then turns to cold air


it sounds like unit could be kicking out the low pressure switch or if it is a electric furnace it could be the sequincers

Furnace runs constantly since blower motor was replaced


Sounds like they wired it direct to line voltage , it should run through a sequencer or fan relay to cycle on and off , your seq./relay could be stuck closed to but unlikely being it was just repaired , call the service company back before you do anything they are responsible.
