Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Cannot reach the temperature setpoint in heating sequence

I have the RUUD model : UBHC-17J14SFA and a white rodgers single stage thermostat.
there is 2 circuits energizing 2 pairs of heaters 1&3 and 2&4 via 2 relays, the relay 1 energizes the heaters 1&3 and the fan, it loocks to work fine because the fan starts normally.
The relay 2 is energized only when the watt restrictor enables that.
In my case, the problem should be otherwise the restrictor or the the relay2.
question : after 5 years running time of this model, the part to replaced is it watt restrictor or relay ?
to short the watt restrictor, is it a feasible solution ?
is it better to replace the thermostat with the double stage one?
thank you for your help, please use my email adress lahloukha@hotmail.com

I think what you are trying to ask is should you use a 2 stage thermostat or stick with a single and just double the stages on a relay to work at the same time. As long as the relay can handle the amp load, there is no real need for a 2 stage heat system, unless you are concerned by the efficiency of $$. If I am missing the question please reply.

Wiring instruction for a White Rodgers 1F78 non-programable thermostat.


The White-Rogers 1F78 thermostat is a single stage 5/2 day programmable thermostat. Home Depot has the manuals for one model of this thermostat, 1F78-151, on the product page: https://www.homedepot.com/p/White-Rodgers-Single-Stage-Digital-5-2-Day-Programmable-Thermostat-1F78-151/202771121 . The wiring diagrams are in the Installation manual. The direct link to this manual is https://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfimages/f9/f955280d-67a2-4502-bb94-4975cd857c0b.pdf . Emerson Climate also has the wiring diagram here: http://www.emersonclimate.com/Documents/White-Rodgers/instruction_sheets/0037-6615.pdf .

If you have a different White-Rodgers 1F78 thermostat, check for the manual at Emerson Climate by starting at http://climate.emerson.com/en-us/products/thermostats/thermostat-manuals . Click on the Enter Model Number button and start typing in the model in the search box. I found a number of models with 1F78 listed. After selecting a specific model, I found a link to the installation guide on the left side of the page, below the search box. (Note: the manual link was above the Suggested Replacement header for the models that I checked.)

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your interest with Emerson White Rodgers. My Name is Joselito Laxamana from technical department.
- Check the wires on the terminals make sure that they are not loose
- Reset the unit by press time, up and down buttons make sure the systems is in on position.
- Set the system to heat then and raise the setpoint above room temperature. There may be up to five minute delay before the thermostat clicks in heating If the thermostat click this means its not a thermostat you have a problem with your heating equipment call your installer. If the thermostat did not click the unit should be replaced.
Let me know if you need anything else.

RUUD UBHC-17J14SFA HEATING PROBLEM


you may have airflow issues, verify the inlet and outlet temps with the unit running on start up, if the unit exceeds the "rise" allowable then the safety devices "overtemp" will take the firing circuit off line until it cools down. The acceptable mfg. rise is listed on the nameplate inside the burner chamber, (generally on the side wall)

RUUD (Protech Model 500) Thermostat Single Stage Not Programable


problem is not the thermostat, thermostat is an on-off switch that happens to work on temperature. Your furnace is locking out. cycling the heat off switch resets the micro-processor in the furnace. You need to diagnose the problem in the furnace, to go further we will need the model and approximate age of the unit
