Re: Rudd heatpump doesn't cool

Hi, Is the condenser fan running? If not, Check the circuit breaker inside the house and the quick disconnect at the condensing unit. Making sure the power is off, check for any bugs in the contactor. If it is running, check to see if there are any resets on a high pressure switch or control board in the condenser. Check the compressor capacitors and see if they are leaking oil or swelled up. are there any burned wires? Is the compressor hot? If the fan is running and the compressor is not hot it is probably off on Low Pressure and needs charged by a licensed Air Cond Tech. Hope I have helped. Let me know. kstfas

How to Keep House Cool Without Using Air Conditioning

The expense of running the air conditioner is just too much. You open the house doors and windows up to try to cool the house down. But the house just seems to get hotter. Maybe you are going about it all wrong.

Here is a way for many people to have their houses cooler without running the air conditioner at all. Now I live in an area of the United States that has many cool nights even in the summer time. And I have found that this works very well for me. This will not work for everyone in every climate all the time but for a great many people at certain times of the year and under the right conditions they can save a ton of money with a minimal amount of effort and fore thought.

The trick to this is to cool your house off at night and then trap the cool air in the house during the daytime. When the sun goes down and it starts to cool off outside, open up all the windows and the doors too if that is practical where you live. Let them open all night long, even if the temperatures get rather cool over night. The idea is to get the house to cool down as much as possible.

Hopefully by morning your house is very nice and cool. Now before the sun has time to warm the air temperatures close your house up as tight as if it were wintertime. Try to limit the traffic in and out of the doors if possible. The idea now is to conserve the trapped cool air inside of the house. By doing this you will have a nice cool house all day long until evening when you do it all over again.

The best thing about this process is that is does not cost you anything. A bit of time spent opening and shutting doors and windows could save you a bundle on your electric bill. The process seems like it would not work that well but once you try it and see the results you will love the savings!

I have a Select Comfort 2000 thermostat. I just replaced new batteries couple days ago. The past week my heat will be working fine all day and/or night then suddenly it will not kick in and the aux light...

Sounds like you have a heatpump. Is that correct? When it gets under 35F or so the heatpump just isn't able to keep up with the heat demand and will require help from a backup source such as electric strip heaters. The way the thermostat works is that the heatpump will work until room temperature gets 2F to 4F below what you have the thermostat set for, the Auxillary heat will kick in to help out. I think I am answering your question, please let me know if I have misread your problem and I'll try to come up with something else.

I recently bought a 4 ton 14.5 SEER Rudd Spilt system using R-410 and matching Rudd furnace. This system replaced a Lennox 10 SEER 4 ton unit. Now that it has gotten hot in Baton Rouge LA 90-93 degrees....

Sounds like the Unit might be low on charge.But without correct readings not sure.
The new unit with 410 will actually cool better due to higher boiling point temp. of freon type.Poor air circulation could also cause problem.Such as dirty filter, too slow fan speed,dirty coil.Also could have obstruction in freon lines either at pump,in line set,or in coil.
Get someone u trust to check it out and ask for their Rudd Dealership Training Credentials.

AC/Heatpump units cycle numerous times blowing ambient air.

If the compressor never kicks in, I would check the start capacitor, thermostat and the compressor windings. Most times the start capacitor is defective. Some window air conditioners the fan will run while the compressor stop through the thermostat switch. If the thermostat switch is bad every thing runs except the compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Heat Pump Stops Working only in the Early Morning

When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough

Samsung window air conditioner model aw05ncm7 icing up not cooling

After I opened the front of the unit and discovered it full of ice, I left the unit off until it defrosted, so to speak, after the ice had melted, I turned the unit back on to see what happened. It is working fine now, I'm not sure why it iced up, if this is normal or not, but after it melted the problem was solved.
