Rudd Achiever A/C float switch is clogged.

I have a Rudd Achiever Series A/C heat pump. The float switch is possibly broken or clogged and causing water to fill the drain pan and over flow onto the ceiling of my garage. Can anyone tell me where the switch is located or how can I unclogg the drain pipe. Please advise, I would be very grateful.

If the pump was bad the switch is supposed to shut down the ac so the water damage won't occur. You most likely have a bad drain.

I have a rudd UHLA-3617JA high achiever air handeler, works fine except the electric heater will not come fan starts normally, is this a fuse/breaker or failed electric element problem, how can i tell

It is either the element, sequencer (or contactor/relay), or power to the switching element. 5KW Elements normally Ohm out @ around 10 Ohms when they are good. Everything you need to check requires a multimeter.

I have a Ruud achiever series heat pump. the unit would not kick on. the LED's under the cover are flashing that there is a high pressure lockout. is there a way to reset this on my own? i had a...

If condenser area is squeaky clean see if there is a way to reset the uit electronics. Check with Rudd for reset and then try again. If that does not do it then there may be an obstruction in the cooling system causing the high pressures and making it turn off for self preservation. You can also carefully push down on the contactor relay to see if the compressor starts at all - maybe there is an issue with the compressor.

Rudd Achiever series model RQNJ-AO42JK 000 mfg

Turn the thermostat as low as it will go and have someone stand out side, they should here the condensor fan and compressor come on at the same time. They are two distinctive sounds so you should
be able to tell if the compressor is running.

If nothing happens and you are skilled with electrical
you can turn power off and remove the electrical
cover to the outside unit. Restore power and carefully
push in the contactor, if the fan and compressor
starts you have a thermostat or low voltage problem.

If just the outdoor fan runs on any attempt, more than likely you need a new capacitor.

I have a Rudd Achiever 14 and I want to know if

Take the front panel off the air handler and look for a heat element. You should notice controls and relays with larger wiring to it. It may not have any heat but you can add it.

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.

Replacement of filter on Ruud Achiever series heat pump/AC

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.
