I think you are describing the contactor if so it could be bad or you do not have 24 volts going to it from the thermostat thats what lets it come on.

Sounds like a short to ground problem with either the motor windings shorting to ground or a high voltage wire shorting.

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.

I have a ruud achiever 10 model upgc-030jas and a high eletric bi


I'm using a calculation of VxA=W. Assuming your system is 240 volts and total amperage of system with 15 amps, I come up with 3600 watts or 3.2KW. Because the outdoor temp was above 35 deg F, the electric heaters probably did not cyle on to frequently if at all. Your calculation sounds reasonable to me. To determine exactly how many KW your system is using, you will need to determine exactly how many volts and amps your unit is running at...both indoor and outdoor units if this is a split system.
I've included a link to a website that helps the homeowner to determine the KWh.

I hope you found this helpful and good luck in your endeavor! :-)

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.

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.
