    Very good AC. It has been problem free for 5 years and and is fairly quiet. Glad I went with Ruud.

  2. Have a Ruud A/C unit, RSNM Series, Model A030JK000, 2.5 Ton/30,000 BTU installed in July 2009. Last summer (2012) we began losing refrigerant and it took some time, including adding dye into the lines, to finally discover a leak in the condenser coil. A new coil was received under warranty, but of course we had a big bill for replacement and refrigerant, as well as the diagnosing costs.
    A few days ago, 7-31-2013, our house again got overly warm and our A/C repairman again found low refrigerant level. There was enough dye still in the system for us to now see multiple small leaks in this replacement coil. Apparantly the coil will again be supplied free under warranty, but I’m still required to pay for the installation.
    MY QUESTION: Has this kind of coil failure been a common occurance with Ruud A.C units? Do I have any recourse with the manufacturer due to ongoiung problems with my unit and multiple others? So far, I’ve been unable to locate much online regarding recalls or mulitple complaints, althought I did find one site with owner ratings for Ruud of 50 out of 107 giving “very unsatisfactory” reviews.
    I would appreciate any help, or direction, you can give me.
    THANKS, Bud Gramer
