Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

I have a Rheem CLassic 10 Seer Heat Pump Model Number is RPKA-035JAZ I'm not familiar with certain terminology, but basically, it seems as though the unit is not cooling down the house anymore. It is just blowing air. The thermostat is not on "Fan", it is on "Cool". The central air system is not on "Auto" but "On" for continuous cooling. The temperature is on 65 degrees but not change has been made. It's not hot in the house but it certainly isn't cool and it feels as the there is less air pressure coming out of the vents. What do you think is the problem?

    We had the same problem with ours years ago and called a local HVAC company. He told us that the unit was never "charged" completely (the house we bought was new and unfinished - and no one ever lived here full time.) He charged it and we've had no problems since.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The auto or on switch is the fan switch put this on auto. Then on the thermostat set it to cool and turn the thermostat down and the outside unit should come on and the house should cool down.

Though the thermostat is not on "Fan", you're still not sure if it's working correctly or not. If you can check the thermostat, it would be better.

Listen for compressor noise. Your fan can still work even if the compressor won’t start. Make sure the coils are clean and dust-free. If everything seems ok, perhaps the refrigerant level is low. As it is a sealed system, you can void the warranty by attempting repairs on it. You ought to call a professional appliance repair person.

Thank you and good luck!

The last order date for this product was August 2009. It was put on the market in 2005. It was marketed by Rheem/Ruud as a "Cube" heat pump. It is 13 seer efficiency.

Have tempstar model NFCX3600CZ Ser# L0239 58594 and unit will not switch from head mode to cool mode. Contractor says it's a bad reversing valve. cost will be $525 to fix. Question estimate.


I am a Technician myself and work for myself. Their price is fine if they don't try to add as they go. Reversing valves are delicate to install and you have the issue of recovery and disposal of the freon that was inside your unit. I am not siding with the Technicians either there are good ones and bad ones. Did this technician come out and test the unit or was this a quote on the phone? Depending on the age of your heat pump I would consider other factors. We also are nearing the end of the R-22 age and moving to better more efficient units that conserve energy. SEER rating means a lot if you add the cost of energy. The newer styles of heat pumps work under extreme pressure. The higher the seer number the lower the cost for energy. Your model may be a 10 seer I will look after I finish this post. Let me know the age of your heat pump. Remember a heat pump works all year round and not just summer months so life span is reduced.

Wiring diagram for Rheem rpka-31 jaz heatpump


TURN THE POWER OFF TO THE UNIT. TAKE THE BACK PANEL OF OF THE HEAT PUMP AND LOOK FOR A SQUARE PLASTIC BAG FASTENED TO THE INSIDE OF THE UNIT, IT MAY BE LOCATED BY THE CONTACTS AND SYSTEM WIRING OR ON THE PANEL ITSELF. REMOVE THE PAPER FROM THE PLASTIC AND THIS SHOULD CONTAIN YOUR WIRING DIAGRAM. ALSO LOOK ON THE BACK OF THE PANEL ITSELF FOR THE DIAGRAM. SOMETIMES THE DIGRAM IS PRINTED THERE.

Going to replace hvac system. Don't know what


Hello,
According to the model number it is a 2 ton or 24,000 BTU unit. It is very important that you change the indoor coil as well as the outdoor section, due to it being a 10 SEER unit, and the new basic systems are 13 SEER, the old coil cannot handle the higher SEER ratings.
Rheem and Ruud are the same equipment, just 1 number different on the model number.
I hope this has helped, please rate the new guy :)
Please contact me if I can be of any further help to you.
Have a great day!
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

Rheem Heat Pump outside fan seems to be running 24 hours per day. Outside temp 23 degrees. Is this normal? Model #RPKA-018JAZ


no this is not normal. the fan should stop running when the thermostat is satisfied or when the heat pump goes into defrost mode. if it is running nonstop, there is a contactor that operates the fan and compressor that if it sticks will get line voltage to it. you would have to take the cover off of the outside unit and turn the thermostat to off. If the fan continues to run, you need a new contactor.

I have a RHEEM heat pump.Model# RPKA 025 JAZ. Problem- ac side works fine heat pump side unit goes into compressor lock after head pressure pegs out over 500 lbs with in 60 sec.


there is a huge problem in the reversing valve. if it works in cooling, there should be no restrictions that would cause that kind of head pressure. the reversing valve is the only thing that could cause this restriction since a/c side works. It is not repairable.
