No cold air

sounds like you need a new contactor but check to make sure you have 24v at the control wiring side of the contactor first. If you don't have 24v check the condenser low voltage wiring and the thermostat wiring.

Ruud UAKA-030JAZ fan spins, not blowing cold air

there are 3 things to be considered,first,if the compressor motor `s connectors are having loose,it gives a hi ampere to your RELAY that can cause to its contacts being fried,second,the compressor motor itself is gaining a hi ampere already i.e. having unusual sound that can cause heavy friction inside the turning mechanism and third the last but not the least,maybe this time,the tubes or the compressor itself having very small holes that causes to the refrigerant to escape and it doesn`t gives off cold air.

Contactor diagram ruud ac

The 030 model is a 2.5 ton system, so it is not going to utilize a very big contactor. If you're not that familiar with wiring, take a picture of the contactor, turn the power off to the outdoor AC, make notes on where all the wires are attatched & remove all the wires. (Note, you also need to turn off the indoor unit which supplies 24 volt control voltage to the outdoor other words, turn off you furnace power). Remove the contactor, take it to a local electrical supply house & they will match it. Replace it by reversing the above steps. If you are deadest on ordering online, look @ the white sticker on the side of the contactor in your AC for the ratings. Really the only thing you need to find is the VA rating. On a 2.5 ton system, it is probably only about a 20VA. Get a double pole contactor (brand doesn't matter), 24 volt coil, with the rating on the existing contactor (if you are not sure, a 30VA contactor will do) When it comes in, plug & play.

Model UAKA 030JAZ was working fine. Now, the compressor fan does not come on and neither does the compressor. I don't know how the contactor works but it is not engaging (the spring loaded contacts are...

You need to complete the 24 volt circut from the themostat to the transformer to get the contactor to pull in.

Check for voltage at the transformer,should be 120 v in 24 volts out.Also there may be a small reset button on the transformer.

Ok I had the problem with ruud uaka-030jaz. I think i hit the wrong buttons when sent your solution so im not sure my response went to u. I checked the outside disconnect..says on the panel it does...

Very bad - the burned part signals that there has been an short somewhere. The fact that the burned part is black signals that the short has been massive so it's probably in the compressor itself which means that the repair will be costly. Call a pro home to give you a quote, the bill may end up higher than your aircon is worth.

I am trying to find a parts list for a RUUD UAKA-030JAZ air conditioning unit (specifically the compressor/condensor contactor).

RUUD will only sell there factory parts to certified contractors. My advice to you is to find a local HVAC parts distibutor that will sell you generaric parts which will work just as good as the factory parts.
