The best place is from rudd the cheep price will leave a bad taste in your mouth long after you replace it with after market parts. And the cost will be double. My experience in buying aftermarket parts almost cost me my business when the parts failed and I had to replace for free. Once you plug in a electrical part you own it. Take my advise don't save money on a aftermarket part unless you want to pay for it's repair twice. How ever if you still want to do this look in the yellow pages in your phone book in your town for any motor re-winder and they can get you one. or look on the net with your zip code for the closest rewinder.

Welcome to the world of Ruud! Ok James heres the deal. It sounds like the condenser fan motor has failed. Its not a repairable item but the motor is not too expensive. Disconnect the main power at the fuse block on the side of your house next to your a/c. Remove the screws that hold the top fan section and carefully turn the fan/panel assembly over taking care not to stress the wires. Determine how the fan is mounted (probably 4 screws) and go find your new motor. Both Rheem and Ruud use the same motor mounting. Most a/c supply houses have a motor that will fit or go to graingers. Make sure you get a matching run capacitor for that motor. It will have separate wires and not share any wiring with the old capacitor. The old capacitor will have to stay in place since it is also connected to the compressor. The old motor will have 3 wires and the new one 4 (2 brown for the capacitor and 2 others to put on the contactor that the compressor wires go to). If its a heat pump it could be a board and youll need help. good luck

Ruud achiever 10 inside blower motor burning


Check fan cage to make sure it turns freely. Check voltage to IFM make sure it is correct for the application. Make sure the motor turns the fan cage in the correct direction. IFM will have high and low speed make sure when you change from fan on to auto that the motor changes speed. If you have an amp draw meter check to see when running the motor pulls the amp load it is rated for. Recheck all wiring.

Air conditioner fan will not turn on outside. Rudd model# UPKA-025JAZ


Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. bobicehouse_41.jpg
If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor.

Fan not blowing outside on ruud achiever series


try starting the unit and with something that can fit tru the grill try spinning the fan blade in the direction that it supposed to turn check either direction just to be sure, if the fan starts then replace capacitor. if it is stuck then replace capacitor and motor. there could be other causes for the fan not turning but this are the main causes. picture one show a dual capacitor used for compressor and fan bottom picture shows two capacitors the smaller one is for the fan. best of luck and always follow safety guidelines when working with high voltage capacitors can still hold a substantial electrical charge even when all power is off.

I have a RUDD Achiever 11. The outside fan only intermittently runs and seems to quit in the evening (overtime for the air condo techs). It won't start again until the morning but when it runs, it blows...


Two possible problems here.
1. you have a bad condenser fan motor. average cost $140.00 for the part plus installation if you can't do it. just buy the motor you most likely will be able to use the existing fan blades.
2. you have a bad run capacitor on that fan. avg cost $5.00 - $35.00 plus installation
In my opinion if you're handy and safe with electicity save some money, if not have it done.
check out grainger.com for the parts they're very reasonable. for the fan you'll need to get specs from the defective unit like amp. voltage rpm. its all on the unit itself. for the run capacitor you'll need the same. all the info u need is on the parts. search the site for run capacitor or condenser fan motor.
good luck hope this helps

Have a Ruud Achiever Model number UAKA-037JAZ that won't run since yesterday. When the air kicks on it simply makes a buzzing noise and the fan doesn't spin. Can anyone help?


try spinning by hand when the unit make the buzzing sound. to see if the capacitor is bad. If the fan runs replace the cap. If not motor probably is bad. See if it spins freely. this is a good starting place. need to check if the buzzing is the contactor and there is no power to the condensor. The contactor will buzz even though the main breaker is off or tripped

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.

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.
