Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

Ac will not cool off

The ac started not to cool during the day and would be nice and cold at night. The AC man stated that we were low on freon. So we had him add freon and clean the coils on the outside unit. Since he placed the freon, there has not been a change for the better if any thing its hotter. What did he do wrong?? Help!!!

There are only 2-choices for this problem,,, 1= low on freon or 2-low air flow across the indoor coils which can be caused by dirty filter--- dirty fan blades and last but not least , dirty or plugged inside coils. After the unit has been cleanned , then he's suppose to check the freon last..

97 Plymouth Breeze won't blow cold air due to freon leak.


Your AC system is a closed system, so the fact you have to put more Freon in, means there is definitely a leak. I would check it out with a mechanic.

The noise is probably the compressor. Maybe the belt could be loose or worn. You may be low on freon. Start with the easy one, check the belt, then freon. Good luck!

Compressor keeps kicking off 1999 Buick Century AC


Your ac system is most likely low on freon, or the cooling fan is not working.
When you turn on the ac the cooling fan should stay on.
If it stays on then you are low on freon.

Ac cools at night but during day doesnt when the car has been driven around


Have the AC system check for proper charge. It sounds like you may only need more freon.
I hope this helps.

Ice is forming on coil fins


Either your coil is dirty or filter is dirty. Worst case your low on freon which would make a coil freeze.But freon doesn't evaporate if your low there must be a slow leak.

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!
