Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner
One customer has had 5 new stats on 2 different systems. What should I look for? Transformer or house voltage issues or grounding issues?
I have repaired A/C commercial and in dustrial for 40+ years. ( ot of ten times replacing one item as a t-stat 5 times pretty much proves it is not the thermostat. The VA rating on your transformer has to ne able to carry the total load of your circritry.
Yes, I have als seen cases wher a intermitent short occurs in the thermostat cable that has up to 6 different wires in it.
Also "Heat anticipators" in all t-stats (Unless they are automatically controlled) need to be set properly.
You need a AMP reading meter with a Volatage and Resdistence Meter.
I suggest calling a professional. ONE WHO IS LICENSED TO WORK ON THE MODEL OF AIR HANDLER AND CONDENSER YOU HAVE. THE T-STAT MUST BE WIRED CORRECTLY TO THAT SYSTEM. TRANE, CARRIER, RUUD, GOODMAN, ALL ARE DIFFERENT IN COLOR CODES FOR WIRING.
I had one job wher a painter had nailed through the t-stat wire inside the wall and caused a short between the Red (Hot wire) and the ground wire ( in this case it was the blue wire) Depending on the t-stat ... There ar up to eight terminals that need to be i9dentified and then properly wired.
Heat pumps use at least 5-6.
5 t-stats failing is gettin close to $500 of repairs if not more.
