Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Ruud heat pump

\015 Compressor and large line from top of compressor freezing.\015

Answers :

Hello do you have a Soleus KFR-18w/d mini/split
If so I have the same problem
THE LAST THING TO SUSPECT IS "LOW ON REFRIGERANT". MAIN CAUSES IN ORDER: "OVERCHARGED",DIRTY FILTER, DIRTY COIL, BLOWER MOTOR IS HEATING-UP AND SHUTTING OFF ON INTERNAL OVERLOAD PROTECTOR, ANY THING THAT MAY BE RESTRICTING AIR FLOW IN THE AIR HANDLER, NON-CONDESEBALES, LOW REFRIGERANT. I FIND ON MOST LOW CHARGED UNIT THE "SUCTION" LINE IS WARM AND THE EVAPORATOR COIL IS FROSTED. YOU ONLY GET ICE BACK ON THAT LINE ON THE COMPRESSOR IF YOU VISUALLY LOOK AT THE EVAPORATOR COIL.\015\012A COIL THAT IS ICED UP IS LACK OF AIR OR A OVERCHARGE. A LOW SECTION OF SOLID ICE INDICATES A LOW CHARGE.

Heat pump goes str8 to heating strips compressor does not run in heat mode pump was manufactured in 03 installed in 07 and has sat dormant till now could it be wired wrong it is a ruud split unit with digital non-programable 2-stage heat and cool t-stat


I think that you have the right idea. The wiring is probably wrong. If you can trace the low voltage wires to the air handler. make sure that the Y1 wire on the t-stat is going to Y1 on the hair handler and then to the condenser. The Y2 wire should b ... Air Conditioners

I have a RUUD 13pja42a01 heat pump. The main breaker in the house was turned off about a week ago. We have not tried to turn on the AC until today and the outside unit will not come on.

Ruud heat pump outside unit not starting. Open and found contactor disengaged even though I have system on from inside. Low voltage wires come out of a circuit board checked for 24v, none. Then bypassed board by unplugging same yellow and brown wires plugged into the board and exiting but now I have 24v getting to contactor but it does not engage contactor. What could the problem be. I know a little a/c but these heat pumps are very complicated. Help please, I want to learn.


If you are getting the low voltage to the relay and it is not closing, then the relay may be either bad or stuck. Disconnect the 220v and see if the contacts can be manually closed. I always use a piece of wood or something non-conductive. If the ... Air Conditioners
