Ruud package unit not cooling

I have a ruud central heat and air package unit. The air coming out of the vents is just not cool. It runs all of the time and my light bill are outragous! I had it charged with freon 2 days ago and it hasn't helped. A worker also came out to look at it and realized that a heating element was stuck on. So he was assured that it fixed it. But it didn't. It has been running all day and it is still 79 degrees in here. However it has been very hot (90-96 degrees) outside. But I still don't think that this is normal. And I've had a window unit running today. So now the guy says it may be my compressor getting old and weak and going bad, but I've heard that the compressor is either good or bad, no in between. Can anyone help?

You could have several problems. Your system could be overcharged or you have a leak.You could have a bad thermostat. Sounds like you have a bad Tech.

My outside fan will not run and the inside unit runs constantly. can't push the reset button on unit outside

Your out door unit fan motor not runs due to pressure not build up at Heat mode. If its cool mode only fan runs with compressor when thermostat calls for it.

Without having technical knowledge, don't press any reset button. Hope it's helpful?

Fan unit does not come on.

if im reading this correctly,you need to push start your fan motor?

Either the motor start capacitor is bad or the motor windings are bad.

If the motor is not coming up to full speed or is faulty you will not get good cooling.

Sounds as you may need a new motor.

Home Air Condition cooling problem

Hello. If your outdoor coils are dirty it's a good chance the indoor coils are dirty also. Clean the indoor coils and flush out the condensate line.
I know it's tempting to feel the air and try to decide if the unit is working properly but, you need to use a thermometer and while the unit is running check the temperature at the return air vent and then check the temperature at the supply vent closest to the unit. Remember to let the thermometer set for about 5 minutes before reading.
You should be looking for about 15 degrees F cooling between the return and supply.
If your coils are clean make sure the outdoor fan is operating properly. The air coming out of the outdoor fan should feel warm, almost hot. If not you may need to check your pressures. Good luck and let me know what you find.
