Turn the power off to the unit. Then go to the compressor and follow the wires back, at least one of them will go to your run capacitor.

It is a Ruud UAKA-024JA2 combination of air conditioner and central heater. The outside air conditioner fan stopped running but buzzed. The capacitor is out of order. Do you have instructions how to locate...


I'm not sure how you determined that the capacitor needs replaced without being able to check it. But the capacitor is the round tube attached inside the box. It will have several wires coming from the top. it sits down in a round hole and is held in place with two screws. Rudd usually (although not always) have gray plastic capacitors. note when you disconnect the capacitor which wires go to herm (that is your compressor) fan and common. Usually the fan is brown and the compressor is yellow or orange. there are usually two wires on the common. Note how many microfarad the capacitor is and replace with same rating. the 5 microfarad side is for the fan. I would however replace the whole capacitor.

Hello, the capacitor is a round or oval metal can that is located in the control pnael of the outside unit. In order to replace it you must turn off power to you unit and unhook the wires that go into the capacitor, but make sure you label them so you remember where they go back. When you unhook the wires take a screw driver with a insulated handle and put in across the terminals of the capacitor to discharge it. Then just remove and install new one.

Fan will not spin on it's own. I must take the vent cover off and spin the fan manually. I think I need to replace the capacitor (sp) but don't know what it looks like.


If the fan is a capacitor start, induction run motor, then it is a good chance you need a new cap. This will be a round or oval shaped can that has spade connections on the top. Depending on the unit, it may have a dual capacitor. These capacitors provide the power necessary to start the fan and the compressor. Be sure to replace with a very close match as the existing.
If the fan is a PSC (permanent split capacitor) motor, then it will have a run capacitor wired in series with the start winding, and this capacitor never comes out of the circuit, providing greater running efficiency. This capacitor can be mounted directly to the motor, or placed remotely.
Hope this helps

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

Roof air conditioner shut off


First inspect the plug blades. If they are dirty, black, melted or corroded, there's your problem. replace BOTH the plug and the receptacle.

Then ensure your power is adequate, a 100' 12 gauge extension cord will blow out a air conditioner in oh, right about two hours.. Use less than 50' for small, and 100' for 12 (heavy guage) extension cords.

Third, maybe your start/run capacitor is toasted from any or all of the above.
Discharge safely and replace the inexpensive capacitor from an online source or a local appliance service shop.

You mean the main plumbing supply to the house? NO WAY! Something is terribly wrong somewhere but not in your unit.

RV A/C fan won't start on its own


This could be the problem. It is more likely that the motor bearing is bad. Take the fan capacitor and have it tested. Or replace it, (under $20). Was the fan motor loud before this happened? Hopefully it is just the capacitor, the motor runs $60 - $100 and is a FUN to replace.
