Fan doesn't start without assistance.


I have a RUDD Heat pump unit that won't restart after it shuts down. When the unit starts up after a shut down the compressor comes on, but shuts down after a few minutes because the fan doesn't come on. If I hit the reset button on the unit after a cool down period and then gently give the fan a little nudge then it starts right up and works fine.

Probably a bad capacitor.

But check the cap you have just in case it is not bad, or it is bad and there are other problems causing it to be bad.
