Ruud Air Conditioner Repairs
If you're looking for help fixing your Ruud Air Conditioner, look no further! Our comprehensive Ruud Air Conditioner repair guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and maybe show you how to repair your appliance.
Ruud manufactures appliances that homeowners have come to trust. Even a trustworthy appliance requires occasional maintenance or repair, however. If you’re in need of Ruud appliance repair from experienced professionals, your local Appliance Helper can help.
Ruud Air conditioner not cooling
If the air filter is clogged, air cannot flow properly through the air conditioner. This greatly reduces the cooling capacity of the air conditioner. In addition, if the air filter is clogged, the evaporator coils will frost over. To remove debris from the air filter, try cleaning the filter. If it is not possible to clean the air filter, replace it.
Ruud Air conditioner fan not working
The dual shaft fan motor (or circulation fan motor) might be defective. The circulation fan motor has two fan blades: one on either side of the motor. On one side, the fan blade draws in outside air over the condensing coil to dissipate the heat. On the other side, the fan blade directs the air over the evaporator coil. The dual shaft fan motor has bearings that can loosen or bind over time. To determine if the motor bearings are defective, wiggle the motor shaft. If the motor shaft is loose, or if it won’t turn at all, replace the fan motor.
Ruud Air conditioner compressor won't run
The temperature control board provides voltage to the fan motor and compressor. If the control board is defective, it may stop providing voltage to the compressor. Control boards are often misdiagnosed. Before replacing the temperature control board, make sure you check more commonly defective parts—particularly the compressor overload, capacitor and the compressor itself. If you are certain that all of the other components are working properly, replace the temperature control board.
Ruud Air conditioner won't turn off
The condenser coils dissipate the heat as the refrigerant passes through the coils. If the condenser coils are dirty, they won’t be able to dissipate the heat as effectively. As debris builds up on the coils, the air conditioner will become less efficient, causing the air conditioner to work harder to cool down. If the coils are significantly dirty, the air conditioner will not be able to maintain the proper temperature, and the compressor will run continuously in an attempt to cool the room. Check the condenser coils to determine if they are dirty. If the condenser coils are dirty, clean them.
Ruud Air conditioner is loud or noisy
When the compressor is wearing out, it generates more noise than usual. When this happens, it is not necessary to replace the compressor—compressors often last for years after they become noisy. However, if you would prefer to have a new compressor, have a licensed professional replace it.
Ruud Air conditioner remote control not working
First, try replacing the batteries in the remote control. If installing fresh batteries doesn’t solve the problem and you can still operate the air conditioner manually, the remote control might be defective. If you think the remote control is defective, replace it.

Things are going well so far. I haven’t had any trouble with the Ruud AC I bought. I got it 5 months ago to replace the old one which couldn’t cool the house anymore. Thanks to Ruud and a nice dealer here, I can enjoy the comfort of my home.
Hurray for Ruud. I’m so happy this turned out great. I was skeptical about replacing my air conditioner because the online reviews gave me the impression that there is nothing really worth the trouble out there. I got this Ruud because a friend of mine reassured me of its excellent services. For 7 months now the unit hasn’t given me any problems. Only had to fix it once and that was covered by the warranty.
The temperatures can really go high in the summer days. You can’t imagine my frustration when my AC broke last summer. For about 2 weeks we had to go without any air conditioning. I was in a rush to get the problem fixed so I got this Ruud but I didn’t know much about the unit. Finally, the problem was solved but then I wasn’t sure the unit would hold up without breaking down. So far so good, haven’t had to do anything except routine maintenance.
We have had the same ac unit for the last 18 years. After such a long time a replacement is usually a better bargain than repairing. So we went ahead and bought this Ruud. I like how quiet it runs. It functions perfectly and does take much to run so the utility bill is low. This is what good manufacturing is all about.
Features that make an air conditioner perform well and last long are in each unit that Ruud makes, no matter the level. Quality matters to Ruud, so every system has optimized access ports for servicing, powder coated paint and rust-resistant screws. They also have an excellent SEER rating, and no unit is below 15.5.
