Question about Ruud UAKA037 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Too much water condensation

I have a Ruud HVAC unit which has an air intake filter located at the bottom of the indoor unit. I notice a steady stream of water drip where
the indoor evaporator unit is located -- the water drip is where the air intake filter is located.

Is this a simple problem to fix or do I need to call a HVAC mechanic?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Check your condensate drain. It could be plugged. Or perhaps you have a crack in the drain pan.

Can you see the condition of the coil itself? If it is blocked this could be a cause for the frozen coils. Also, check the condition of the blades on the indoor fan. Dirt and dust accumulation on the blades reduces airflow.

I do have the Ruud split unit. My drain line was clogged and when I cut the line at the unit alot of water ran out. Could that of caused it to stop working. The fan will come on but I get no response...


Check for some type of float switch in the condensate pan. It will shut down the unit to prevent more condensate but I am not sure if it would still allow the indoor fan to run.

I have a 4 ton Ruud HVAC system that is two years old. It is a 13 SEER unit. It is tilted slightly to the front of the evaporator to aid in draining the condensate. Two days ago, my daughter came home...


If the condensate drain is clogged, water will stay in the condensate pan located below the evaporator.
As the water builds it most certinly will be picked up by the blower and travel through the duct work.

I have a Ruud Model # UACC-036JAS. Any idea on


Hi, yes the number you are showing me 036 indicates its a 3 ton unit. For every ton of cooling, you will have 12,000 btu's of cooling. 36 divided by 12=3 ton unit. Its showing me also its a Ruud Handler 2.0 ton which would be a Model# UACC-024JAS? If your mobel number is the one you gave me, UACC-036JAS, this is a 3 ton unit, absolutely no questions. I hope I have been of help to you. I am a licensed air conditioning / Refrigeration /Heating Contractor. Let me know if I have been of help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS If this is a split system with the indoor air handler and condenser outdoors, both coils must be the same tonnage for it to work for you properly. You can't have a 2 ton indoor evaporator coil with a 3 ton condensing unit.

Water dripping (almost running) out of the left corner of air handling unit. Help???


You're correct in checking the drain pipe, because it's become blocked. The only trouble is, you're trying to clear the wrong end. The condensate water is spilling out of the air handler because that's where the pipe has a clog. These pipes usually have un-glued joints next to the air handler, for times such as this. If you can't pull them apart, you may have to cut the pipes and reconnect tham with fittings from the hardware store. (which is a normal procedure.) I usually use a wet/dry shop vac when repairing this problem, sucking out the clog & the water, then blowing out the line to where it drains outside. I've also used the clothes hanger technique to drag crud out of the air handler fitting. Hope this is helpful. ;)
