May be due to improper refrigerant pressure; I would have it checked.
'Recovery' is normally provided to allow high- and low-side pressures to return to a safe range before the unit is allowed to cycle again and yours is doing it way too soon.

Ruud 5 Ton UAKA Condensor fan running but compressor won't start. Internal thermal overload cycle.


Have you checked the wiring going to the compressor to make
sure it is not melted? Next, are you
able to put your hand on the top of the compressor? Check to see if it is hot or cold. You might have a bad run capacitor so let the
unit turn on, wait about 5 minutes, turn the unit off, and then tell me if the compressor
is hot or cold to the touch. Next, are
you comfortable with a meter?

Two ton spilt ac how many mfd capacitor need to be fix


usually takes 25mfd or 30mfd for compressor and 3 mfd for fan motor. Depending on what compressor is used I would recommend 30uf rating for the compressor and it should be fine, most compressor will operate within 10 to 15 percent of rating plus or minus with no problems. Also the 3mfd rating is based on OEM motor, if it has been replaced then probably a 5mfd is required.

I have a Ruud Model # UACC-036JAS. Any idea on


Hi, yes the number you are showing me 036 indicates its a 3 ton unit. For every ton of cooling, you will have 12,000 btu's of cooling. 36 divided by 12=3 ton unit. Its showing me also its a Ruud Handler 2.0 ton which would be a Model# UACC-024JAS? If your mobel number is the one you gave me, UACC-036JAS, this is a 3 ton unit, absolutely no questions. I hope I have been of help to you. I am a licensed air conditioning / Refrigeration /Heating Contractor. Let me know if I have been of help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS If this is a split system with the indoor air handler and condenser outdoors, both coils must be the same tonnage for it to work for you properly. You can't have a 2 ton indoor evaporator coil with a 3 ton condensing unit.

When 13+ SEER condensers are replaced without installing a inside coil with an expansion valve the compressor in the new unit will slug and go bad. Slug means that liquid refrigerant returns to the compressor. Liquid can not be compressed so it causes the compressor to fail.

Is the unit over five years old? If so it is a fair price for conpressor, parts, labor and refrigerant. Have him give you a firm price. If it is an older unit, say over 10 years, and you have the money replace the complete system

Does my 10-seer have a 10 year compressor warranty?


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.

Ruud achiever 10 seer air conditioner


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.
