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

The outside fan on my Ruud Achiever 10 heat pump runs constantly, whether the AC is on or off. The AC seems to be working OK. Is there a reset button for the fan? The fan runs no matter how I set the thermostat.

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.

Ruud Achiever 10, outside Fan wont spin unless I help it.


The part you are talking about is called a capacitor. They come in various voltages and ratings. The best thing to do would be to find the rating tag on the motor, and look for the capacitor rating. There are many, many different sizes and types, so it is best to consult a proffesional before attempting to replace it on your own.

Fan running constantly in the house


Check t-stat and make sure fan is set to "Auto", that might be why fan is running all the time, or it could be a fan relay that is stuck closed. It sounds like you A/C is over charged or you have a bad high pressure switch, this was a common problem with this manufacture especially in the heat mode.

It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.
