How to repair a ruud uakb-030jaz air conditioner

Unit stopped working today. Checked breaker, roof fuse, and inside fuse. Inside fan does not come on while thermo on fan "on". No cooling. Slight humming sound coming from unit in hallway ceiling. Water pan clear. Unit got dusty during construction remodeling job. Thermo lights up fine and can be adjusted, but no cool or heat. Any ideas? Where can I get troubleshooting manual. I have tools and a multi-meter.

SOURCE: no cooling after power out, indicator lights pattern not in manual

The Mitsubishi units have to be reset by turning off the indoor units by switching the remote or thermostat to off. Then turn off the breaker to the outside unit(s). After 30 seconds,turn on the breaker and then you can turn on the remote for cool. If no lights come on on the inside units, most likely you have blown a fuse soldered on the main PC board. At this point, call your technician. A goos tech will be able to wire in an in-line fuse holder so if it should happen again, you can easily replace the fuse. If you do see a light or two come on at the indoor unit but the outdoor unit does not start after 3 or 4 minutes, sounds like you will need to call a technician. Most likely you have a blown fuse on the main PC board of the outside unit. It is not an easy one to replace. Good Luck!

SOURCE: fan in my Central Cooling Conditioner Unit are not running

NEVER POKE AT ANY PRODUCT on a heating and cooling system it need to be serviced by a trained tech that knows what is going on in the unit, poking around can cause death and at the least a large sum of money if you poke the wrong place

SOURCE: central air conditioner doesn't cool

The capacitor is located inside the control panel on the outside unit. It is round or oval and silver in color.It runs the outdoor fan and the compressor both.
The terminals are marked= C, /F or fan/, H or herm. C-F-H.
The microfarad rating is printed on the capacitor. Make a color code wire diagram before removeing wires.
Disconnect power to the unit. Use a insulated screwdriver to short out the terminals on the capacitor before removing it.

Ruud UAKA-030JAZ fan spins, not blowing cold air


there are 3 things to be considered,first,if the compressor motor `s connectors are having loose,it gives a hi ampere to your RELAY that can cause to its contacts being fried,second,the compressor motor itself is gaining a hi ampere already i.e. having unusual sound that can cause heavy friction inside the turning mechanism and third the last but not the least,maybe this time,the tubes or the compressor itself having very small holes that causes to the refrigerant to escape and it doesn`t gives off cold air.

My 4 year old Ruud home a/c compressor stopped working. inside fan blows but compressor won't turn on...what can I do prior to calling the gas company who installed the unit...


Ruud parts warranty from factory is 5 years, the capacitor has possible gone out, it will be in the contol compartment on the out side unit and is a dual run capacitor that controls the compressor and fan motor. Recommend if capacitor is bad to replace entire capacitor. As Stated above the parts are under warranty if under five years old. To verify age the date code is in the serial number after the "F" **** week/year of manufacture. Also outside unit has independent power supply so check fuses if any and circuit breaker.

The air conditioner was working today i have a RUUD UAKA018JAZ, the fan is running however it is not blowing cold air out the vents


Hi, your problem is in the unit outside. Check to see if the fan is on, make sure the compressor is running also. If nothing is on, check the breaker to see if it tripped. Also, the box at the unit has 2- fuses inside behind the plastic cover you can't see unless you remove it. If the unit is off and the breaker was ok, remove the cover and replace BOTH fuses. Do all of this and let me know. If the breaker keeps tripping or blowing fuses if the unit was off, you have a componant shorted. It may be off or on and not cooling well due to a loss of freon. If it is on, hold your hand above the fan to feel the air. It should be nice and warm almost hot if its hot outside. Let me know what you find please. We can find the problem.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Air conditioner fuses


If the unit is located on the roof then they would be in the disconnect box up there. If it is on the ground then the same. If no disconnect box if found then check you breaker box for a tripped breaker.
