Question about Ruud UAMB Air Conditioner
I have a RUUD M#: UAMB-024JAZ . The outside fan motor (OFM) will not turn off. It runs all the time, even when the thermostat is in the off position. Air blows cold and works perfectly. Coils are freshly cleaned and clear of any dust/dirt or blockage.I replaced the relay (contactor), but no change in problem. The only other items in the path of the connections are: 1. the condensor 2. run capacitor I'm stumped. Please advise what could cause the OFM to never stop running.
It sounds like your fan connector is on the same side of the contactor where your high voltage enters you should have 3 wires 1 wire for each pole of the contactor and 1 wire off the capacitor does the compressor run all the time too? try turning the power switch off on your indoor air handler / gas furnace if the power goes off the fan goes off then it could be low voltage wiring

You probley have both power wires hooked to the bottem or power side of the contactor switch, one should be pluged into the bottem of the contactor, and one to the top, so when the switch opens, it breaks contact between the two wires (turns motor off).
