Rheem Air Conditioner Troubleshooting
If you're looking for help fixing your Rheem Air Conditioner, look no further! Our comprehensive Rheem Air Conditioner Troubleshooting guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and show you how to read your model's error codes.
Not cooling properly?
This could be something as simple as a thermostat setting, but it could also be that the unit isn’t the right size for your home, or that the refrigerant is low. Signs that the refrigerant is low include the unit blowing hot air, bubbling or hissing noises, ice on the refrigerant line, and fluctuating temperatures.
Compressor won’t run?
When there’s a problem with the compressor, there are many possible causes, including low refrigerant, too much refrigerant, a loose connection, low voltage, and defective contactor or capacitor.
Air conditioner filters can absorb odours from your home, such as smells from cooking or smoke and distribute them throughout the house. The easiest way to fix this problem is to change the filter regularly.
This is likely caused by a dirty or clogged filter, and can be fixed by changing the filter.
Won’t run at all?
There are many potential causes for this problem, including defective control board, power problems, thermostat settings, bad wiring, and high- or low-pressure control problems.
One possible cause of this is the drain pan is full because of a clog, and the leak can cause damage to the unit. If you do notice water leaking, the drain line may need to be unclogged.
Condenser coils can get dirty and need to be cleaned once a year, whereas evaporator coils can be damaged by corrosion and should be serviced every three years.

Mine is about 10 years old and it’s fine. I haven’t had a problem except last season it needed Freon. Mine was installed by Greg Hookenshoven Heating and Air Conditioning. Great service. He comes quickly when called for service. Can’t say enough.
Rheem is a good product, well made, and has a great track record. Parts are easy to get and it is easy to repair when needed even though that’s rarely. The life span of a Rheem is 20-25 years. If I had to purchase another heating and air unit it would be a Rheem.
I bought a new home in 1984 which had a 4 ton Rheem central air conditioner system which ran for 20 years. Updated with a Rheem 5 ton system ten years ago and haven’t had a problem to date. I also recently replaced my water heater with a Rheem which is very efficient. I highly recommend their product line.
I had a Rheem HVAC unit with a motor burned out during a HOT Summer in Alabama a few days ago. The local Distributor did not honor my warranty due to the fact that my problem comes up after the Unit installation date; but, it was within my warranty registration date. I called Rheem warranty department and was fortunate to speak to a lovely lady named Michelle. She took times listened to my explanation and willing to work and help me with the warranty part. The authorized Rheem technician was able to help restore the HVAC unit to its operations. I wanted to thanks Michelle personally and thanks Rheem manufacturing department for going the extra mile to listen and review my case. With this type of professional service, I am rest assure to continue to buy Rheem products for my future need. Again, thank you very much.
Actually we had to replace a part to central air approx. $120. But the electrician said to be prepared to replace your unit within a year. She's old and past her life expectancy. She's a good girl B/C most die well before this and she only had a couple problems, nothing major. I would stick same brand. Rheem. So we are now checking in on some. And glad we had heads up. Because we could look around and price.
