Does the unit outside run at all,can you hear a humming noise or the compressor run or is it just dead.if you hear the comp. run or a humming noise then i would say it needs a new motor.but if you hear absolutely nothing out there,what i would do if you dont have a meter, is open panel on condenser and push the contacts in on the contactor when this is done its like jumpstarting the unit,it should all come on ,compressor and fan motor,if motor comes on then your contactor is bad (cost approx.$50.00) if it doesnot come on then its motor when replacing motor be sure to get a new capacitor with it (cost $80.00 to $120.00 plus cap 5mhz.$5.00 to $15.00) depends on where you get it home depo/menards/etc.high priced try granger or a local a/c distributor youll get it much cheaper.hope this helps

First time using my air conditioner after winter. my "inside" fan will run but the outside unit is not starting. My weather king is approx 9 years old


Check fuses and circuit breakers to the outdoor unit. Fuses should be right next to the unit in a box on the side of the house. Easiest thing to do is replace them both. Circuit breakers are in you circuit breaker box. There will be two of them, probably 30 or 40 amp maybe 50 amp if a big house. Trip breakers all the way back and then all the way forward. Hope this works.

My air conditioner fan is not working


Check the outside fan and make sure it rotates freely. If it doesn't spin freely it needs to be replaced. If it does spin freely then check the capacitor. If the capactitor is OK the check the fan motor windings for continuity with an ohmmeter. Let me know what you find.

Air conditioner fan runs outside but won 't blow cold air in house. It's 78 in there. The unit is only 3 years old.


is any air coming out? check the fan. then the evaporator coils in the furnace plenum. see if the condensation drain is plugged. see if the coils are iced up. is the thin tubing very warm? if not, you may be low on refrigerant.

Ruud Achiever 10, outside Fan wont spin unless I help it.


The part you are talking about is called a capacitor. They come in various voltages and ratings. The best thing to do would be to find the rating tag on the motor, and look for the capacitor rating. There are many, many different sizes and types, so it is best to consult a proffesional before attempting to replace it on your own.

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

Ruud achiever 10 seer air conditioner


It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.
