Rudd air conditioner isn't cooling,blowing ,but isn't cooling my house because air is not cold


Hello, first check if the outside unit is running, if it is then check filter to make sure it is clean and that the blower wheel is clean and not dirty. If the unit is clean then most likely you have a low refrigerant charge due to a leak and will need a hvac tech to come out and fix the leak.

Goodman central air conditioner not blowing normally


It sounds like the compressor is not coming on in the outside unit. If it worked fine and was cooling before, then your compressor probably over-heated and tripped the internal overload switch which causes it to stay off while everything else is working. The most common cause of your compressor over heating is an incorrect refrigerant charge, though it could be a few other things like a restriction in the copper line set. You will be able to hear the fan motor and the compressor kick on if you listen close while the system first turns on. If the compressor is over-heated, then after it cools to a save temperature, it will come on again, but only till it over-heats again. I would have the charge checked on the system, but remember that if the compressor is over-heated when the technician gets there, there is nothing he can do until it cools down and time is money! It's best to not run it until the problem gets figured out. Hope this helps and points you in the right direction. Good luck!

Carrier Air V unit with loud noise


If it sounds like a scraping noise it could be the motor bracket ah broken and the squirrel cage (fan assembly) is hitting the fan housing, if it is more of a squeal than it very well could be a bearing. Very hard to guess without seeing or hearing it.

Loud screeching noise coming from the unit.


A screeching or squealing noise usually comes from the fan motor. There may be an oil port and you can buy a small telescoping oil bottle at a super hardware store or an a/c supply house. Before putting in he oil, remember to TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE UNIT and only use a light squeeze on the bottle - over oiling will cause a mess inside the motor. It may be a sealed motor and no oil ports. In either case, budget for a new motor as if it's to the squealing stage, the bearings are already damaged and it's a just matter of time before before the motor bearings fail. If possible, get oil on the bearings ASAP - and use the proper lightweight oil for made for this application.

GE Heat/Cool model AJHS10DCBM1


OK I will be looking over the manual. Now that squeal sounds like the squirrel cage fan scraping the housing around it. Those units are so tight fit they can be twisted one way or tightened a little to much they scrape. I love them for there silence win they work right but hate them because my hand are too big to move things around inside them. Stay in touch I will be looking around while
multi-tasking today- I'll be here!

Air conditioning unit not cooling


the problem sounds like a defective capacitor its located on the condensing unit outside, also a contactor that is used can be defective also.

Non-working outside unit


If your unit is blowing heat inside and it's not a heat pump. It will be most likely electric heat in your case.
Sounds like you have a split unit meaning the condenser is outside and the cooling and the heat features are inside or under your home.If your Rudd is a heat-pump the outside unit will cycle/blow cold air outside in winter and hot air will cycle/blow outside during the summer season. Now, if for some reason the heat  is not coming on inside the house, would be the only reason that you would need to be concerned. Being a heat relay or breaker of could cause that problem. Hope this helps you, Sea Breeze
