My ac is blowing air but it is not cold the ac is only 7years old the local service tech comes out removes the bottom panel and blowes throught the tubes to the condensation pump i believe and then he leave and it seems to work for a period of time, the real problem is he charges 70-100 dollars each time, what can i do to eliminate the need to call him

It sounds like it could either be low on refrigerant or the compressor has stopped working. Start by verifying that all the breakers and controls are in the on position. If the outdoor unit is running but you have no cold air, you may need a HVAC company at this point.
DO NOT buy a RUUD system. I purchased a complete system in 2010 & have had multiple issues since - - new coil, high humidity levels, condensation on my walls when the furnance is on, and now when the outside temp is 90+ degrees the AC unit shut off and only blows hot air. THey've replaced the "board" and I was told that RUUD is aware of multiple problems with the 2010 units but will NOT recall them.
Hello Anna Sounds like the compressor is overheating and stoping on overload internally.Then it cools down restarts and runs into overload again.I would like to see the freon pressures when running.Could have a clog/restriction in piping.I dont like that you went thru a compressor already, the original installition is suspect.The original (1st) failure cause must be corrected.Check the TXV valve replace, filter/dryer look for a kinked pipe are ideas for overheating.Make sure condenser coil is free (ari flow)& clean also.
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.
the cap and all other electrical components are safely placed inside the unit's box. You have to take the side off of the unit and the metal box is on top please throw the disconnect of and remember there is still 24 volt live inside. The 24 volts is coming from the furnance.
Do you have gas or electric heat. If you have gas then you do not have a heat pump. You should in most cases have a red,yellow, white, and green wires coming to the thermostat. R should go to rc/rh G should go to green Y should go to Y and w should go to W. Also the switches on back should be switched to non heat pump and gas rather than electric. Hope this helps.
