Have you check the outside breaker box? If thats not it then its probably the contactor.

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.

Ruud achiever 10 seer air conditioner has weak airflow, I changed the filter and one of the coils on inside unit is frozen


Turn the unit off and give it time to thaw. A hair dryer can speed this process along. How did the filter look? When the coil has thawed check to see if it is dirty. Also make sure your indoor fan is running and all the covers are on the air handler. A weak capacitor will make the fan run slow. Let me know what you find.
