Have you checked the circuit breaker? If it has been working hard, the breaker may have tripped...remember that a/c can only really affect tempurature downwards by about 20 degrees- if your outside is 100 and you are trying to bring your inside down to 70, your a/c will be working all day long and something is eventually going to make it stop (like the circuit breaker overheating).

Hi it sounds like LOTs of water running in the unit. I looked in and there is LOTS or water in the bottom of the unit Is this OK ??


Yes, the a/c unit removesmoisture from the air inside the home and allows it to drain to the outside of the unit, once there the water sits in the outside of the unit and the outside fan blade has a ring on it known as a slinger ring wwhich picks up and throws water on the outside coil cooling it to inprove cooling and efficiancy.

WATER LEAKING


Water should come out of the back of a wind unit when it is humid out, usually a drain hole. If water is leaking inside from a window unit, check that the outside drail hole is not clogged or maybe it is not tilted downward enough outside (Usually a very slight tilt down toward the outside to help the water drasin out the back outside). Also, if you have excess water forming, you may need to clean the coil. For central air units water should be drippng outside the home via a pipe or tubing and if the drain tube or pipe is clogged with scum that forms inside the pipe water will back up and overflow in the house near the heater/air conditioning unit. Also, some units have a pump to pump the water out and it may not be working.

AC BLOWS WARM AIR


Cooling comes from what is done outside, if air handler is blowing and you are hearing a sound , may be in the duct work. If you feel warm air in cooling mode then the outside unit is the prob, need more info

Outside unit won't run


If the inside unit is running properly, there will be a yellow wire (or blue) from the thermostat down in the furnace that needs to be hooked up to the Y terminal also there is a red and white wire in the same place in the furnace coming from the outside unit, one goes to the Y terminal also and the other would go to the C terminal in the furnace. Otherwise you may have a bigger problem.

Non-working outside unit


If your unit is blowing heat inside and it's not a heat pump. It will be most likely electric heat in your case.
Sounds like you have a split unit meaning the condenser is outside and the cooling and the heat features are inside or under your home.If your Rudd is a heat-pump the outside unit will cycle/blow cold air outside in winter and hot air will cycle/blow outside during the summer season. Now, if for some reason the heat  is not coming on inside the house, would be the only reason that you would need to be concerned. Being a heat relay or breaker of could cause that problem. Hope this helps you, Sea Breeze

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.
