Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

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 not have fuses inside. I checked behind the plastic panel anyhow and there weren't any. Did check the screws on the wires to be sure they were tight. I also was looking close at the contactor and there does appear to be some scorching under the contacts that are controlled by the spring loaded part. they rnt large marks but they r black. could this be bad?

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.

Where can I purchase a run start capacitor for a RUUD air conditioner model # UAKA-030JAZ


Most big box stores do not carry these type of parts.You are supposed to be a licensed contractor to buy at a heating & cooling supply company. Not knowing were you live I can not recommend a supplier. I am in the Cleveland Ohio area. If you can not find it locally I can ship it for you.

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.

Freezing pipes and water dripping on to motherboard of the heater in a Ruud UAKA-030JAZ system. Help?


More than likely, the system is low on refrigerant and the copper line-set is freezing up and water is dripping onto the board in the furnace (and other things) because it is an upflow system with the evaporator coil on top. Other things to check would be:
1. Dirty/clogged filters in the return air system.
2. Fan motor not working inside furnace. (The Blower)
3. Coil dirty/clogged which could be checked by the amount of airflow coming out of the vents. This would have to be cleaned by a technician.

Most of the time, it is the charge which also means there is a leak in the refrigerant system somewhere and needs to be fixed. Hope this helps you out! Good luck.

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...


Hello
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.

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.
