Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner
I am having a problem with my RUUD air condintioner unit. It keeps flipping the breaker switch and the unit stops working. It just blows out hot air. I can reset the breaker and the air conditioner works fine for about 25-30 minutes and then the same thing happens. I noticed that there is not water coming from the white condensation pipe. I replaced the filter to see if that solves it, but it is blowing out cool air. Is there anything else I can do? Thanks,
Could be a lot of things. About the only thing you can do besides calling a service tech is to 'make sure your coil on the condenser (outside) is clean. This coil can be cleaned with a water hose, but you need to make sure you have all electricity turned off.
Turn off the breaker on the outside unit (this could be a fuse block that you have to pull out) and make sure you have your inside thermostat in the off position.
Once you are 'absolutely sure' that you have all electricity off - you can wash the coil with a high pressure hose. Just make sure that both - the inside and outside of the coil is clean; you may have to disassemble the unit a little bit, i.e. take the top off or one of the sides, etc.
The only hope you have - is that the coil is clogged and causing the compressor to overheat and go off on amp overload. It's possible this is the case - but I also suspect the compressor is electrically breaking down which is not connected to the condenser coil being dirty, in which case you will need a service tech and may be faced with some expensive repair. Let's hope this is not the case.
So - it's worth a shot to wash the outside coil.
Not to be 100% negative - it's possible it's something minor and when a service tech looks at it - it could be a fairly cheap repair bill.
