Re: fan keep,s blowing

Sounds like your heat pump isn't working and system working on second stage heat which is your electric heat strips.It is designed supplement the heat pump if the temperature falls more than 2-3 degrees below the set point.Outside unit should be running and blowing out cold air from outside unit. If not have system serviced.

Re: fan keep,s blowing

Your thermostat is calling for blower, your fan relay is stuck, or that model had a time delay blower solid state board on it which had the blower relay on it, and it could be bad. I would turn the power off to all of your system for a few minutes and see if this could make something happen.

My Ruud Achiever 90 Plus not blowing cooled air

Look on the condensor, (outdoor unit) at the very bottom of the rear panel and you should find a red reset button. push it. If that does not solve the problem, and the outdoor unit is running (make sure both the fan AND the compressor are running) then you are looking at a low refridgerant issue and possibly dirty coils.

In that case, clean the coils and have refridgerant added.

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.

Replacement of filter on Ruud Achiever series heat pump/AC

You must first remove the blower compartment panel. The filter should be in there. However, since this unit is in a crawl space you may have a return air filter grill. Look at your return grill. Does it have a filter? If not does it have latches so that you can open it? If so measure the opening and install a new filter there. I hope this helps. Please don't forget to give me a Fixya rating.

Ruud heating/ac unit blowing only cold air in heating mode

Do you have gas or electric heat. If you have gas then you do not have a heat pump. You should in most cases have a red,yellow, white, and green wires coming to the thermostat. R should go to rc/rh G should go to green Y should go to Y and w should go to W. Also the switches on back should be switched to non heat pump and gas rather than electric. Hope this helps.
