Question about Ruud UPMC036 Air Conditioner
Look at the top of the capacitor that has several leads to see if it is a dual cap. It will have 3 sets of connectors in a row and if you look close, they will be numbered with these markings, C for common, Fan, for the outdoor fan motor, and Herm, for the compressor. This would be the one. Look it over to see if the top on either one is raised up, swollen looking, leaking oil or deformed in any way. If so, the cap is faulty. It may just be your motor going out. This motor gets a lot of run time in the summer, and if its a heat pump, the winter also. If it tries to take off when you spin it, sounds like the windings are weak. But, it would be much cheaper if it was the capacitor. If you are going to have it tested for the proper microfareds/uf's, make your self a drawing of all of the wires and where they go, so you don't forget. This happens a lot. The capacitor will have markings like this on the side. 55ufx370 volts or 440 volts and the fan will be 5uf's x 370 volts or the numbers may be higher or lower depending on the tonnage of your unit, just to give you an idea. Please keep me posted and get back to me and let me know what you are able to find out. I will be here if you need my help. Don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. Keep me posted for sure. Thank you,
