SOURCE: ruud achiever 90 plus blower not working

does the furnace ignite?? your system may not have been lighting and has gone into ignition lockout count the codes of the led lights then remove panel led diagnostic codes are listed there.
if led codes indicate no problem verify capacitor is good and that mtr is getting 115 volts.

SOURCE: Rudd Achiever Plus - Fan runs 24/7

it does sound like a limit switch to me as well. Make sure the fan switch on your thermostat is set to "auto" and not "on"

SOURCE: Rudd Achiever A/C float switch is clogged.

If the pump was bad the switch is supposed to shut down the ac so the water damage won't occur. You most likely have a bad drain.

SOURCE: Ruud Achiever 10 heat pump - outside fan won't shut off

Definately get this checked out. Some thing has shorted just enough to let voltage "Feed back" and keep the fan running. Could be capacitor, wires rubbed through each other, etc. A reset is a safety that is used when there is an overcurrent or over pressure situation. No reset set for this situation.
There is always an outside chance that if you touch the unit while standing on wet ground, you may get shocked. I firmly believe that something is allowing power to the fan in a feedback condition so don't let this go as it may cause damage to other parts.

Good Luck and let me know how you make out on this.

Take the front panel off the air handler and look for a heat element. You should notice controls and relays with larger wiring to it. It may not have any heat but you can add it.

I have a rudd UHLA-3617JA high achiever air handeler, works fine except the electric heater will not come fan starts normally, is this a fuse/breaker or failed electric element problem, how can i tell


It is either the element, sequencer (or contactor/relay), or power to the switching element. 5KW Elements normally Ohm out @ around 10 Ohms when they are good. Everything you need to check requires a multimeter.

If condenser area is squeaky clean see if there is a way to reset the uit electronics. Check with Rudd for reset and then try again. If that does not do it then there may be an obstruction in the cooling system causing the high pressures and making it turn off for self preservation. You can also carefully push down on the contactor relay to see if the compressor starts at all - maybe there is an issue with the compressor.

Turn the thermostat as low as it will go and have someone stand out side, they should here the condensor fan and compressor come on at the same time. They are two distinctive sounds so you should
be able to tell if the compressor is running.

If nothing happens and you are skilled with electrical
you can turn power off and remove the electrical
cover to the outside unit. Restore power and carefully
push in the contactor, if the fan and compressor
starts you have a thermostat or low voltage problem.

If just the outdoor fan runs on any attempt, more than likely you need a new capacitor.

Replace Rudd Achiever 10 ???


if the fan motor outside let go it could overheat the compressor which he should have known before he replaced the motor. also there is no way of knowing if there is enough freon in the system if the compressor does not start,your best bet is to get another repairman as a second opinion

Trying to change out my thermostat to a programmable one but the wire colors don't match up, what color wire does what on the Rudd Achiever series?? green/brown/yellow/white/blue


You should check the terminals where the other end is connected, there is no guarantee that the installer followed a wire color code. There should be a diagram in the HVAC unit. Normally, you have the power wire from the XFMR, a wire for the heat, a wire for the AC, and a wire for the fan.
