Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner
If the unit is doing fine, was he there for a seasonal check? If the capacitor is failing more than 10% the visual thing you would see happen is the outdoor fan motor turning slow or not turning. You would
hear a humming noise from the outdoor fan and or compressor.
More than likely the unit just needs to be washed out, then it would not
be operating so hot that could cause these problems.
In Iowa I could buy the capacitor for around $50.00 or less and ship it to
you. If I lived in Arizona I could still buy it and install it for under $100.00.
Shut the outdoor unit off,remove the electrical panel and you should
see the capacitors or capacitor. You may have to remove the band that
holds it to the unit. Write down the information and go online and you will see how cheap it is.

This is why I have been pushing for technicians to be certified and the general fix-alls keep away.

You can buy a run capacitor directly from grainger.com search for run capacitor. All you need is the Mfd number as well as other info from your capacitor. Chances are you'll spend $20.00 (shipping included) and your problem is fixed average price for one ranges from $5.00 - $30.00 but I just purchased some for a similar Ruud model and spent $5.00. If you want to pay someone $ to take out a few screws and unplug 2 wires because you're not handy then do so but my guess is you wouldn't have found this site if you didn't have some common sence.lol
