Newer High efficiency A/C's are not compatible with the older systems for many reasons. They use a different refrigerant, have a different oil in the system for lubrication and they operate at higher pressures than the older systems using refrigerant 22 which is being phased out. It is standard procedure to replace the entire system when upgrading.

Yes it is a little red button on the back lower part of the heat pump by the lineset. it will most commnly trip in heating mode if the filter is dirty. or in A/C mode if there is an issue with the outdoor fan motor or dirty coils.
If you take all the numbers off the compressor and condesning unit and call an authorized RUUD parts dealer in your area, they should be able to verify your inquiry.
Unless there was a special circumstance, most compressor warranties are 5 years, unless the compressor was replaced during the 5 year period, in which case you should get 5 more years assuming the service was performed by an authorized service company.

YOUR MODEL HAS A 3-5 MIN.TIME DELAY RELAY IN THE CONDENSER CONTROL PANEL OUT-SIDE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIX-IT YOURSELF ... THERE I SAID IT.
IT IS WIRED INTO THE 24VOLT CONTROL CIRCUIT. THEY DO GO BAD AND OFTEN.
IT IS THERE FOR A GOOD REASON. IT GIVES THE COMPRESSOR TIME FOR THE PRESSURES TO EQUALIZE INTERNALLY TO PREVENT "HARD START CONDITIONS".
RUUD HAS A GOOD WARRANTY ON ALL PARTS 5-6 YEARS I BELIEVE. IF IT IS THE TIMER IT IS INEXPENSIVE ANYWAY.
