Question about Heating & Cooling
My new outdoor unit(new ruud 13 seer heat pump) has a hammering noise at the TXV after cooling mode turns off, the noise lasts about a minute and is quite loud...also when in the heat mode the head pressure rises to 450psi in the first 30 seconds of operation in the heat mode, therefore i disconnected the ''blue'' reversing valve connection and only use it for cooling at this point but the hammering is most disturbing, my opinion is that the RUUD distributor sold me a defective unit with a faulty TXV/check valve.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Unsure how long ago you purchased this unit, I can only respond to what I have read. I, as a homeowner, would not PAY a contractor until such contractor has properly INSTALLED and successfully TEST-OPERATED said unit/system in ALL MODES to the complete SATISFACTION of the homeowner. Then, and ONLY then, should a contractor be paid. If, in fact, the unit/system was TES-OPERATED in ALL MODES after INSTALLATION, and IF the sytem worked without that loud, hammering noise, then you need to contact the CONTRACTING INSTALLER and have them perform WARRANTY work, if it is sitll under warranty. Most manufacturers provide anywhere between a 5 year and 10 year warranty on their units. Good luck.

Why is it that my Ruud central air conditioning unit blows out hot air only when it should blow cold air all the fans and compressor work inside and out. It worked for about 2-3 hr then nothing but hot air…

I sell Rudd equipment. You have air in the system or faulty TXV. Replace TXV and evauate system. No more problem. Rusty
