Ruud air handlers

Im installing two ruud achiever airhandlers, one for a 2.5ton unit and the other for a 3ton unit, for the airhandlers I already have #6 wire run to the location of the unit can I use #6 to a disconnect and and then from the disconnect to the airhandler can I use #12 wire. Now for the breaker... Can I use 40amp in the main panel and 15amp in the disconnect?

Thank You, Hank.

Check the name plate amperage on the air handler. The air handler only has the blower motor as its main current draw. #12 wire is rated for 20 Amp service. If the amp draw by the unit supplied by the disconnect is under 15 amps it should be fine (but) once again check the name plate for ampacity rating.

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 am requesting an owners manual for My recently installed Ruud Air Handler unit Model # RHPN-HM3624JC Thank You

The right path for getting this manual is from the installers as it is a requirement by law for this to be left with the home owner. Is it a new unit ? If not then there is a couple sources for manuals. Such as calling RUUD customer support. contact info at at

I have a RUUD Achiever heat pump. Where does the filter go? I don't see a slot for it. I can't even tell what size filter it takes, since there is no defined slot.

it would be at the air handler portion of things (the unit inside) you might have to take off the lower door to access it it would be located at the bottom of the unit or somewhere in the duct work before that point look for spots that say airflow and will show an arrow--->

How do I change the filter in my Ruud Achiever series

I'd look in one of 2 areas.

1. often there is a central return in the house. This is the place where the air gets pulled back to the unit and is likely very close to your thermostat. Check for a filtered louvered grill there and see if your filter is located here. If so, you can access the filter by opening the filter frame with a screwdriver or even a coin.

2. Otherwise I would expect that your filter is on the return-air side of your air handler (where the blower is) Older models have the filter actually inside the air handler in the blower compartment. Newer models may have a small separate filter door. I'd look in these areas.

hope this helps
