    Your model number and serial number will have to be checked with RUUD. The SEER has no connection to the warranty.

If you take all the numbers off the compressor and condesning unit and call an authorized RUUD parts dealer in your area, they should be able to verify your inquiry.

Unless there was a special circumstance, most compressor warranties are 5 years, unless the compressor was replaced during the 5 year period, in which case you should get 5 more years assuming the service was performed by an authorized service company.

Sounds like a compressor needs to be replaced. You will need a service tech to make sure of it. Sometimes the compressor can work for a long time that way. Check your warranty. Usually compressors will have longer warranty on it.

We have a fairlynew 5 ton Central Ruud or Rudd unit that it is so noisy in the yard that we can not stay out there. We thinkit is the compressor. Help


I have a new 13 seer rheem or ruud same thing. I can not here it run. Uou must have a bad compressor. Ruud put schroll compressor in and when they start to go out they will drive you nuts they are so loud. Get it changed before your warranty runs out. Ruud will change your compressor if it to noisy. No problem. Russ

A/C Compressor Problem 3 Ton


IF the compressor is under warranty they should not charge you anything. it is according to what type of warranty you purchased, If the business is gone, i don't know much of what you can do other than calling ruud directly. Most likely the unit is past the warranty. Call ruud to be sure.

WEATHERKING 10AJA4801 BAD COMPRESSOR


You have 10 seer 4 ton unit. A compressor install in my company (4 ton) is about 1400 dollars. Remember when you change compressor you only get a 1 year warranty. A new unit can have as much as 10 year compressor warranty. Amana has a 10 year parts and labor with their unit. The new unit will be 13 seer and you may have to install a TXV inside. You might think about changing the whole system with the new 410A system. Either way a new condensing unit is needed. I have not had anyone just change a compressor in an older unit. Just not cost effective. Get several estimates before you make up your mind. Rus

It's not maintaining inside temp with thermostat setting


replacement cost vary a lot depending on what type of equipment you are going to upgrade to. the new 13 seer mandate has driven up cost quite a lot in the past few years. the older units only had to be ten seer and most manufactures go all the way up to 18 seer but regardless you will have to go with 13 as that is the law now. the best advice i can give you is to call around to local contractors and 99 percent of them will give you free estimates on replacement of your equipment even proper bids that normally are good for 30 to 60 days. get as many bids from as many different companies as possible and let them know you are shopping prices but remember have them all bidding on similiar equipment so they are'nt bidding apples to oranges. also there are some tax credits available for some systems with higher efficiency ratings. also be aware that many manufacturers offer 10 year warranties on equipment and some have lifetime compressor warranties. Reasearch online for some of these suggestions. you can look up goodman-amana, york, bryant, rheem-ruud and see what offers they may have going. the contractors will guide you through most of this and offer many suggestions videos and brochures.right now times are slow for alot of a/c companies so now is a perfect time to start shopping.

Who should I contact--Raleigh, NC


huummm... i'd pull out the invoices to equipment there's always a 5 year warranty on compressor. sometimes contractors says it's out of warranty to sell you a new unit, (they usually hate repairing.) If your invoice says it's less than 5 years old well technically your under warranty. If contractor doesn't want to honor warranty you should contact any local consumer affairs office and file a claim, sometimes if the equipment is less than 5 and more than 2 you might have to pay a small fee to get the replacement compressor. And you might have to pay some fees, at least installation of it. and the only time it needs refrigerant if's there's a leak. I'd on on that line for now hope to be of assistance today.
