Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite. Essentially, you become my eyes and ears. Thanks for the opportunity to help. At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need. Please be patient as many times we work with several customers at once.
If there is a reset button, it would be a red button located down near the smaller of the two copper lines where it goes into the outside unit. Some had these, some didn't.
If there is no red button, there is no way to reset. You may have a blown fuse or tripped breaker. There are 2 copper lines that come from inside the house and go into the outside unit. Sometimes Rheem/Ruud put a red reset button near the smaller of those two copper lines RIGHT BY WHERE IT ENTERS outside unit. If no button, then your unit will not have one (see above).
You will have to contact customer service if you are subscribed as a monthly subscriber. I have nothing to do with billing issues.
Your unit should have a electrical disconnect box near outside unit and many times these have fuses in them (sometimes behind a plastic panel).
Yes, your hardware should have replacements. But they can test them first.
Please upload a picture of it.
Yes, breaker should be shut off. For that matter turning off the circuit breaker would "reset" the outside unit should it be a fault code on a board or something, but I don't think that's the issue.
OK, it is very common for fuses to blow on the outside unit. This would be a starting point. Let me know if you have additional questions. Otherwise, good luck! Thanks for using Just Answer and please don't forget to rate my service as that's how experts get paid (thanks in advance for any bonus left). Otherwise experts work at their own time and expense. Feel free to post back with any more questions. Remember, you can rate question at any point and still ask more questions (related to the same thing) later on. Experts prefer if you rate question at the end of our first chat.
