R-22 home condenser unit low side and high side pressures when running


Pressures look good but to know if it is charged correctly you have to do a sub cool or superheat to know for sure. Rule of thumb is if turn unit it on let it run 10 minutes. If the suction line sweats and is cold. Might be proper charge.

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.

Too much condensation


I have never heard of "too much" condensation. The condensation is the the moisture that is being removed from the home. If the home is very humid and its common for alot of condesation to be removed from the coil. As long as the coil is not freezing up, you are good to go.

Need info for RUDD upflow oil furnaces


Contact your nearest Ruud DISTRIBUTOR, usually The Noland Company, and ask them if they could go into the historical documents and print out or send you the files for the wiring, spec's and parts breakdown. From the model number, that unit is rated for 3 tons of a/c. You can find a 3 ton coil that will fit in the space and get a straight cool condenser of 3 tons cooling and swap thermostats so it brings on the furnace and fan in heat and the condenser and fan in cooling. Or just add a simple White - Rogers model 444 for the cooling. Ron

Pan missing when RUUD unit was installed causing problems with AC


I think your talking about an emergency drain pan. Is condensation building up on the outside of the unit? If it is, it means that the unit is not draining properly and the is too much water sitting in the main condensate pan. If you don't have the emergency pan, then the condensate drips from the unit onto the ceiling in your attic. I'm assuming a lot of things but this is what I think you are asking. You will have to find an ac supply company that will sell you an emergency pan and then it must be piped to the outside of the home or it can be plugged but with the use of a float switch. This switch will shut the unit off if the main condensate drain becomes clogged. You should have a professional come and wire a float switch unless you are knowledgeable about a/c equipment. I hope this answers your question.

Compressor will not start.


Usually short cycling means that High side pressure is getting to high (due to not working condenser fan, or dirty condenser coil), or low side pressure is getting too low (might have low level of freon or restriction in sealed system). low side would drop dramatically if indoor blower is not running, so if air is not circulating thru evaporator coil, coil will freeze up and low side would be much lower then normal. Here is video how I found issue with package AC not coming on. Thermostat call for cool, but condenser would not come on, indoor blower runs ok.

Cooling problems


Check the filters inside and the evap coil to make sure it isnt filthy. The evap coil can be cleaned with a credit card if its wet. The large line outside should sweat all the way to the compressor if its got enough freon. Will freeze when its cool outside or not sweat at all if its low. Good luck with it.
