Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?


\015 We live in condos and our central heater is no longer working. I asked our HOA and they said it's our system. They came in and said it maybe the filter. OMG, I just moved in (Dec 08') and when they took the filter out...LONG OVER DUE FOR A CHANGE. So, she changed the filter. It still wasn't working. Her husband suggested the system maybe backed up because it had nowhere to go. So, we may need to reset it...ummm, DUNNO HOW. He told me to contact the manufacturer. Of course I jumped on the internet and found this site.\015\012\015\012Name of unit: RUUD AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM\015\012Model#:QA1000BBS\015\012Serial#M09800106\015\012Volts: 240/208\015\012Manufacturer: Rheem Manufacturing Company\015\012\015\012I don't see a reset button and I am wondering if that will fix the problem. IF ANYONE CAN HELP, I WOULD MUCH APPRECIATE IT.\015\012\015\012Signed, \015\012Confused House Wife in Long Beach\015

Air Conditioning I have a ruud system with the air conditioner outside and the air handler upstairs in the attic. My systems appears to be running, and I can feel cold air at the vents, but I can barely feel it. Like there is no flow. The fan outside is running and the unit in the attic is running. I have no clue what the problem is. The large coil coming from the heat pump outside is cold and has condensation on it. It also seems to have a little ice. It has been extremely hot here in Ge

Open the access panel on the air handler in the attic and take a look at the evaporator coil. If you have no airflow, and you just changed the air filter, then you probably have a buildup of airborne crud on the coil that's blocking airflow. \015\01 ... Ruud UAKA030 Air Conditioner

We live in southwest Florida. Our HVAC system consists of a air conditioning system with heating coils when it is cool. Yesterday morning we tried the heat nothing come on.

I went out to the outside unit and pulled the cover. Pushed in a spring loaded plastic switch the fan on outside unit works and shut off when I released the switch. But noth

Hello. Sounds like you do have power. That spring loaded plastic switch is a 24v contactor. It pulls in when energized. If you push it in manually everything shoud run normal. Ck your 24v transformer. On one side (feed) you should have 115v or 220v ... Air Conditioners

OUr air conditioning system works well until the circuit breaker trips. We added another large return vent in the hall to try to get more air circulating and that didn't work. We just replaced the outdoor airconditioning unit and the circuit trips again. The electrician says the wattage is fine. Any ideas what could be the problem. Everyone is baffled because the house is only 5 years old.

Hello, Can you help me please. We have a Fujitsu Air Conditioning / Heating System installed into the ceiling of our local club. The Company that installed it have gone out of business and unfortunateley, no-one can find any manuals regarding the working of the units.

I have Jaguar S-Type 2000, and I am facing a problem in the Air Conditioning System. When I switch On the A/c, the compressor sometimes works and sometimes no. Also sometimes it works for a while, for a short period of time and then it goes Off. I replaced the (Relay), but the problem remains. I hope you can help me defining this problem. Thanking you.

I have Ruud Silhouette ii, about 5-6 yrs old...heater will work for a while, then it shuts down, house gets cold, I'd bang on the heater box, it comes back on..why does it do that? It does that every couple days. Doesn't matter if I have it on auto or on hold. Also I'm confused about air filter with the arrow, which way to use as I'm not sure which way blower is blowing (I'm deaf). Thanks so much!

Rob, the blower always blows into the furnace therefore the arrow should always point to the furnace. As far as the unit failing at times, you may have a lose wire. Inspect all wires and reconnect them after cleaning if they look suspicious. Turn off ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner
