Is the unit over five years old? If so it is a fair price for conpressor, parts, labor and refrigerant. Have him give you a firm price. If it is an older unit, say over 10 years, and you have the money replace the complete system

RUUD Achiever 3 ton roof unit. Pops fuses. Place "hard" fuses in and it would pop the house's 60A fuse. Checked both motors and they spin just fine at the touch. Both caps also...


Hi,
The compressor is going bad or the unit is charged wrong...
Whatever the cause the problem is the compressor locking up and blowing the fuses...
Clean the condenser coil...maybe the pressures are going too high...
If that don't work, then the compressor is shot or over charged...

Here is a tip that I wrote about how to clean your condenser

I have a Ruud AC model UACC-056jas serial number 3170 F1085 5657. Does anyone know the tonnage?


Hi,
That would be a nominal 5 ton BTU unit or 56,000 btu....
At 12,000 btu/ton you can see that it is just a bit short of 5 ton but larger then 4 ton....actually about 4.75 ton....

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.

I need help selecting the best Amana 5 ton furnace/ac.


I believe you are asking which furnace to go with?

Just some clarification first.

The "condensor" is the outdoor unit.
A "Compressor" is the device inside the outdoor unit that pumps and "compresses" the refridgerant.

An evaporator is the indoor coil, it has refridgerant running through it.

The furnace is completely seperat from the condensor and evaporator.

I "THINK" you are saying that you are looking to buy an AMANA system with a 5 ton 14 to 16 SEER condensor, and a furnace, but you need suggestions on the furnace.

typically when you purchace a condensor, the evaporator coil is simply matched by the manufacturer to the specific condensor you purchace, there is no choosing to deal with. All condensors ofcourse come with a compressor already installed.

If my assumption about your request is correct, maybe this will help.

Amana's 90+ furnaces are great units. I would recomend them to anyone. The 80+ uses a somewhat inferior heat exchanger, and is ofcourse less efficient.
Anything higher than a 90+ can take quite a while to recoup the costs of the enitial purchace through your efficiency savings.

If it were my home, I would go with the 90+ furnace, and the 16 SEER Condensor/evaporator system. But ultimatly, its up to you, your efficiency standards and your wallets potential.

If you live in a northern state where AC is little needed, I'd go with the 14 SEER AC.
Again, an initial cost verses long term savings issue.
