Question about Ruud Matching Split Air Conditioner
Found fried mouse at relay connections. chewing on wires. handler turns on and hum at compressor but it won't turn on. could relay be problem? Is there a reset button (where) on these units and if so try that before replacing relay?
Relay could be problem. See if thermostat makes relay click. If it does and you hear compressor try to run when it closes, everything is good in control circiut. Then check Start and Run capacitors. May be just one capacitor with 3 terminals on it. If there is any oil leaking out of it or if its swelled, Thats the problem, Replace it with same size capacitor. Mark wires before you remove them. If you hear relay try to close but no sound from the compressor, Check the High Pressure switch. They usually have a red reset button. If its tripped, Could be the condensor fan motor or grass and **** blocking air flow on condensor coil. If you hear no compressor noise and high pressure switch is not tripped but relay acts like its working, Replace relay. DANGER!!! High Voltage!!! Make sure that all power is off of both units before touching wires. Hope this helps. Let me know. Am on yahoo IM as kstfas if you yahoo.
