If a Ruud air conditioner does not cool, the condenser coils or the air filter might be dirty. Clean or replace dirty air filters or condenser coils as needed. Check whether the thermostat is set correctly and replace blown fuses. If the problem persists, ensure that the thermistor is connected to the control board and if faulty, replace it accordingly.

If the AC’s fan is not working, inspect the fan motor. If the fan motor is getting power but it does not operate, it may be burned out and can only be replaced. Check whether the capacitor is working properly and replace it if defective. If this does not fix the problem and all the other components are working properly, consider replacing the main control board.

If a Rudd air conditioner is making noise, the fan blade or the dual shaft fan motor might be damaged. These parts are not repairable and can only be replaced. If the problem persists, examine the blower motor and the drive motor, and replace any of the faulty parts.
