Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

1 Answer

RUUD won't blow cold air...

I have a similar problem. It gets up to 78 degrees in the house and the ac unit is set to 65. It sounds like it is on all day and my electric bill is rediculous. I have replaced the filter, but have read things about cleaning out the outside unit. Does anyone think that this will help? If so, how do you go about doing it? My duplex management wants to charge me money to send someone over here to look at it...

    Thats just how it is when it over 90* outside. A system is at its max at 90* and it begin to de-rate for every * the outside temp climbs. Shut the condenser off and simply run plenty water through the fins to flush out the dirt and dust. take care not to bend the fins. Dust and dirt will restrict flow and insulate the coil and cause the system to de-rate even more.

I have my brand new frigidaire window ac unit set at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so why does it only cool and keep the room at 65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit?


if you have it set at 60 F and it is working at 65 to 68 F then that would be about right
as the air is cooled the cold air falls to the floor and out under the door, open window or anywhere else it can escape
the unit has to be at 80% room height so if it is set in a window then when the cold air gets up to the thermostat or ac level in the window then it will stop cooling
So if the ac unit is say 4ft from the floor and the ceiling height is 8 ft then the ac will only cool the bottom 4 ft
cold air does not rise but falls down
if you are using a ceiling fan then the cold air is stirred up and the 65F sounds about right
remember that the setting temp ( what you set it at) is the lowest temp that it will go down to before it stops cooling and if that is not reached it will keep working to attain that temp and if the room is too big, air leaks under door . around the fit in the window , no insulated walls , hot exterior wall,etc then maybe 65 F is the best you will get

Sounds like it could be low on freon I believe these units have about 1.5 pounds of freon in them and are critical in not undercharging or overcharging them if it is a freon 410 ac unit the pressures should be about 135 and both lines cold if is low on freon a service tec will need to be called to try to repair the leak if possiable

I have a RUUD gas pack unit.....when you turn on the heat, the blower does not blow any air out of the vents while on "auto". If you put it on "on" it blows cold air out of the vents. What is wrong?


Sounds like the thermostat is hooked up wrong. If the ac doesnt work right its in the thermostat programming or the wiring. Hope this helps good luck

Air Handler--Noisy Harmonic Sound


DO NOT buy a RUUD system. I purchased a complete system in 2010 & have had multiple issues since - - new coil, high humidity levels, condensation on my walls when the furnance is on, and now when the outside temp is 90+ degrees the AC unit shut off and only blows hot air. THey've replaced the "board" and I was told that RUUD is aware of multiple problems with the 2010 units but will NOT recall them.

2.5 RUUD AC not working, power must be getting to the unit.


Have them turn the outdoor unit off and wait a few minutes. When they turn it back on they should here
the fan and the compressor come on. They are to different sounds.

If they think that they have both come on, tell them to check the black insulated suction line. it should at least cold to the touch. If not it could be a freon issue.

If the line does get cold, have them checkthe filter in the house. If that is ok tell them to turn the power off
to the outside unit. Take a garden hose and wash
the outside coils on the outdoor unit,be carefull not to
smash the fins. Wash them at an angle from top to bottom.

The inside RUUD AC unit has ice and no cold air is blown


it is likely low on coolant or as some say "freon" that or the indoor fan motor has not run properly. let it thaw completely by shutting it off and just turning on your fan switch from auto to the on positon. if you begin to feel air flow eventually you need coolant added b/c you probably have a leak from the system being old

AC Thermostat is set to 78 but wont cool past 79 or 80


If your unit is running 24/7 you are either low on charge or the unit is to small for your house.
A 20° temperature difference is about normal for the room air vs the air coming out of the ducts, but the room air and the leaving air should keep getting colder and colder.
An air conditioner should cycle approximately 3 maybe 4 times in an hour if it's properly sized.
As for the thermostat thermometer they are very cheap and are more for reference than actual temperature, so if 78° is not comfortable, then you should set it lower but not rely on thermostat being accurate or what the thermometer is saying as long as it is consistent.
The air conditioner and thermostat can also be set below 78°, there's a lot of people set them at 72° and below with no problems.
the only thing is if you have real low humidity you'll need to watch indoor coil or the suction line (the big line) on your outdoor unit and make sure it doesn't freeze up on you.

Not blowing cool air on my Ruud, 18 years old, outside unit.


If you have ice on the Line you are iced up. If coil is iced no air can get thru. Now First. Turn of ac and turn fan to on posotion. That will thaw unit. Let it run 45 minutes. That should do it. If the fan is not running you amy have a bad fan relay. One of the reason iced up unit is dirty evap, coil inside. Try to thaw it out first. You can clean the coil with a stool brush. Does not damage the coils. Good luck

Unable to reach/maintain heating or especially A.C.


Hello Glenn. There are factory reps for Rheem/ Ruud and if the contractor and distributer can't solve your problem then a Rep needs to go to your house and take care of it. What type of Ruud unit do you have? I will need the model number and a description of what you mean by "keeping up". Also what State / Country are you in? Let me know as soon as you can and I'll see if I can help you out.
