Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My apartment has a Ruud UAND-024-JAZ installed since 2006. It takes approximately 7 hours for it to reach the temperature the thermostat is set to (77) My landlord had a service personcome out and flush the coils 2 months ago, the unit was checked and the vents have been cleaned. He said the unit was fine. My electric bill is running about $100 a month..which I think is high. I wonder if there is something else that was overlooked.. Regards, Linda

With out knowing where exactly you are and how many sq. ft. you are cooling it is impossible to tell if you are working properly or not...
The best way to tell would be for you to check the return air temperature and the supply air temperature. There should be at least a fifteen degree F difference.... if not then you have a problem...

Why is the pilot light on my ERN7926 frost free flashing?

After 4 hours, measure the temperature in the refrigerator and freezer. Should be between 2 and 10 degrees centigrade in refrigerator and app. -18 in freezer.

Caravan does't reach operating temperature

No one ever said new means good. Try another thermostat. Make sure it is the recommended temp for the vehicle. I would spend the extra money to buy a dealer thermostat. What controls temp is restriction of flow thru the system until a set temperature is reached and the thermostat opens. Has to be a thermostat.

Setting start temperature on central heating thermostat

It sounds like your heating system has to little capacity to heat the home properly. 21 degrees is a reasonable temperature to expect but if the unit is running all the time and can't reach 21 degrees the heater is too small.
As far as setting the thermostat here is a link to the instructions.

Adjust thermostat

A thermostat only cuts the heating off when the temperature it is set to is reached while the heating is on. If the heating is set to off then the thermostat will do nothing.
Generally you want to think about when you want your heating to come one and off by using the timer and then the thermostat is just used to ensure that you don't waste energy by exceeding the maximum comfortable temperature.

Hope this helps a little.

My coils on my ruud uand -030-jaz unit are jammed with yard debris..a technician said 110.00 for an acid cleaning solution would take care of the problem and he said the contacts were corroded what can i...

Hi, clean the coil with your garden hose and spray nozzle, but be careful not to bend the aluminum fins. I have never had to use the acid coil cleaner, all it does is make it shine!! I have cleaned coils all of my life to lower the head pressure, just spend some time doing it. Make sure you get most all of the debri's. He must be talking about the contactor contacts being corroded. Kill the power, and use a piece of sanding cloth to clean them up. You can do all of this your self.

3 year old a/c unit will not run outside is there a reset button?

Make sure that the breaker for the A/C is turned on, there should be a disconnect mounted on the wall, near the A/C unit outside. Ishould have a breaker or a set of fuses, the fuses will need to be ohmed out, as you cannot tell if they are bad just by looking at them.
Where the 2 copper lines connect to the A/C unit outside, there is a red reset button, push it in and make sure that it is not tripped.
I hope this gets you started in the right direction.
Have a great Day.

RUUD (Protech Model 500) Thermostat Single Stage Not Programable

problem is not the thermostat, thermostat is an on-off switch that happens to work on temperature. Your furnace is locking out. cycling the heat off switch resets the micro-processor in the furnace. You need to diagnose the problem in the furnace, to go further we will need the model and approximate age of the unit
