Ruud UAPC-030JAZ Achiever Compressor unit
Posted 23 July 2011 - 10:32 PM
Today I realized that my RUUD HVAC unit wasn't cooling. The blower was working fine, but the compressor was off. I went outside, and I pressed the reset button, and the compressor started to spin, but the fan did not. I tapped the fan motor and could tell that it was humming, so i gave it a nudge (it easily turned) and it came up to speed and spun normally.
I then turned everything off, and back on, waited for the reset timer to run out, and when the unit came back on, once again, the fan would not spin up without that nudge.
so what's wrong with my fan?

OR the Fan Capacitor may be bad.
With power removed, try turning the Fan Motor Shaft.
Does it turn easily, smoothly ?
