Question about Heating & Cooling

Hi there. I have a problem with my Rheem Classic

Hi there. I have a problem with my Rheem Classic series ''gas-pack''. It is model # rrma-a042jk10e. The a/c is on, the fan is blowing air in the house however the sir is room temperature. Upon looking at the unit, the fan at the top of the unit was not turning and the metal over it (mounted) was hot. A couple of smacks to it and it started turning. The air is still room temp. Inside the house, when the unit trys to draw power, perhaps to engage the compressor, the lights will go slightly dim, the unit will make a buzzing sound, then 2 seconds later the sound stops and the lights go bright again. Appears the compressor is not engaging as the unit is not making its usual a/c type sounds. Also, there is no water coming from the drain pipe. I think the compressor isn't working. I tried resetting the a/c breakers in the house (marked and identifed and did cut power to the unit) but to no avail. Same fan not working/smack the fan to get rotation, and no cold air.

Have you checked the capacitor? Try spinning the blower wheel by hand, if this gets the motor going you have a bad capacitor. If not, the motor will need to be replaced.

I have a rheem classic series super quiet 80 furnace. when the panel that covers up the control board is removed is there a reset button or sequence that mut be performed so the system will once again run.


Hi,
no just repalce all the covers and then cycle to power to the unit and it should take off and go...be aware that the t-stat could take five minutes or so to recycle and star the unit also..
