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

Dear Friend!

Due to very low ambient temp, the fan will not run. Once the pressure build up, it's automatically run for some time and again cut off. But if you keep Heat mode and still tem not raised in your room means the reversable valve not working and hence the compressor and out side fan also will not work. Keep "Heat" mode and temp setting +29 to get better heat. Hope is it helpful?

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?

If it does not have a furnace or heating elements for heating, then it is a heat pump, which is rare for a central AC system, but makes sense of the fact that it blows warm air when you reset the pressure switch, which may indicates freon pressure charge problem if your AC system has a reverse valve and uses freon to for heating (heat Pump).

Do you get heating when outside unit runs? if you do, check freon pressure levels and top up to required pressures. The button you depress is a pressure reset switch ... that is if your AC system is a heat pump ... which, as pointed above, it is not common for central ACs.

Fan running constantly in the house


Check t-stat and make sure fan is set to "Auto", that might be why fan is running all the time, or it could be a fan relay that is stuck closed. It sounds like you A/C is over charged or you have a bad high pressure switch, this was a common problem with this manufacture especially in the heat mode.

Ruud 12 seer heat pump not heating


It sounds like the unit is tripping off from high pressure. Check you filter and indoor coil. You may have low air flow inside that is causing the refrigerant pressure to be to high.

Outside unit does not come on in Summer


YOUR MODEL HAS A 3-5 MIN.TIME DELAY RELAY IN THE CONDENSER CONTROL PANEL OUT-SIDE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIX-IT YOURSELF ... THERE I SAID IT. IT IS WIRED INTO THE 24VOLT CONTROL CIRCUIT. THEY DO GO BAD AND OFTEN. IT IS THERE FOR A GOOD REASON. IT GIVES THE COMPRESSOR TIME FOR THE PRESSURES TO EQUALIZE INTERNALLY TO PREVENT "HARD START CONDITIONS". RUUD HAS A GOOD WARRANTY ON ALL PARTS 5-6 YEARS I BELIEVE. IF IT IS THE TIMER IT IS INEXPENSIVE ANYWAY. GOOD LUCK
