Question about Ruud UAMB042 Air Conditioner
About once a day (anywhere from 3-5pm), the fan on the outside unit (Ruud UAMB-042JAZ) will not turn, but warm air is blowing from the vents. Pushing the reset button on the outside unit immediately starts the fan turning and the cool air to blow. Suspect overheating as it is over 100F daily. Any ideas would be helpful.
I have the same unit and was having the same problem. My brother works on A/C's and told me that the coils most likely needed cleaning from the inside out because when they are clogged with a lot of debris the system will overheat and cause that switch to trip and so far it has worked. What you need to do is turn the main breaker off to the outside unit first then take the four screws out of the top of the unit, use a flat head screwdriver and lift the fan it's self up out of the carefully taking caution of the wires going to the fan, then take the garden hose with a spray nozzle and wash the coils from the inside spraying through the coil to the outside and then wash the louvers off of all the debris and this should help.
