Question about Ruud UAMB Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I would like to clean the condenser coil in my RUUD 3 ton unit.

I have done a lot of large, chill water coil cleaning, but do not know how to disassemble my 3 ton RUUD gas pack to access the condenser coil. If I had the mechanical drawing I am sure I can do the job.

It should be very simple to remove the case (covers) and get right at it.

Should be about 8-14 screws

Hello, in order to get to the evaporator coil you must cut into the plenum above the Furnace. This will require sheet metal tools and being very careful not to puncture the coil. Many times a cracked condensate pan under the evapoartor coil can cause water to leak down to the base of the unit.

How do i clean the evaporator coil on my ruud 3 ton unit .


The best way that I have found to clean the evap. coil when it's clogged with dirt and other things is a small wire brush and some evap. coil cleaner that is self rinsing. You will have to open the coil box and take the small cover off of the coil itself which can be a pain sometimes. You might have to take the flue apart and clear other obstacles that can get in the way. The self rinsing cleaner has to be bought at a A/C supply store. Be careful not to bend the aluminum fins has this could add to the problem. Also be sure that you don't leave a lot of junk in the drain pan or it might also be clogged later. One more thing that a lot of people forget to do is clean the coils on the outside unit as well. This can be done with a water hose and a spray gun. Starting from the top, work your way from left to right and heading down. Also be careful not to bend the aluminum fins here too. Hope this helps!

I have a Ruud Model # UACC-036JAS. Any idea on


Hi, yes the number you are showing me 036 indicates its a 3 ton unit. For every ton of cooling, you will have 12,000 btu's of cooling. 36 divided by 12=3 ton unit. Its showing me also its a Ruud Handler 2.0 ton which would be a Model# UACC-024JAS? If your mobel number is the one you gave me, UACC-036JAS, this is a 3 ton unit, absolutely no questions. I hope I have been of help to you. I am a licensed air conditioning / Refrigeration /Heating Contractor. Let me know if I have been of help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS If this is a split system with the indoor air handler and condenser outdoors, both coils must be the same tonnage for it to work for you properly. You can't have a 2 ton indoor evaporator coil with a 3 ton condensing unit.

What is the size of coil in air handler is it 3 1/2 ton and believe that rudd only made 2 ,3 , 4, 5 , ton coil is this right


It is a 3.5 ton air handler and without knowing for sure about Rudd only making those sizes which they should, they more than likely would have gone up to a 4ton coil. One way to cross check this, is to see what ton the condenser outside says it is. If you have a 4ton condenser, then you should have a 3.5 to 4 ton coil, either being okay. What you don't want, is a 3 ton coil and a 4 ton condenser and so on. A half ton isn't going to be a problem regardless, but if anything, you can always take the measurements of the coil if you are trying to replace it.

Need info for RUDD upflow oil furnaces


Contact your nearest Ruud DISTRIBUTOR, usually The Noland Company, and ask them if they could go into the historical documents and print out or send you the files for the wiring, spec's and parts breakdown. From the model number, that unit is rated for 3 tons of a/c. You can find a 3 ton coil that will fit in the space and get a straight cool condenser of 3 tons cooling and swap thermostats so it brings on the furnace and fan in heat and the condenser and fan in cooling. Or just add a simple White - Rogers model 444 for the cooling. Ron

Compressor will not start.


Usually short cycling means that High side pressure is getting to high (due to not working condenser fan, or dirty condenser coil), or low side pressure is getting too low (might have low level of freon or restriction in sealed system). low side would drop dramatically if indoor blower is not running, so if air is not circulating thru evaporator coil, coil will freeze up and low side would be much lower then normal. Here is video how I found issue with package AC not coming on. Thermostat call for cool, but condenser would not come on, indoor blower runs ok.

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.
