What actions should I take if my Ruud Ultra Plug-in Heat Pump with HydroBoost (120V Shared Circuit) displays Alarm Code A009?
CAUTION: For your safety, DO NOT attempt repair of electrical wiring, controls, heating elements, or other safety devices. Refer repairs to qualified service personnel.
Possible Cause: Heating source defaults to elements due to compressor malfunction. What To Do:
- Check connections of the wiring and sensors.
- If you have a multimeter, obtain an Ohm reading on the thermistors. You should consult the Ohm chart for accurate readings based on the ambient temperature.
- Navigate to Service –> Sensors on the display. If the sensor displays -40°F, this indicates that the circuit is open. A display of +250°F signifies the circuit has shorted. To validate this reading, turn off the unit and disconnect the thermistor from the board, then recheck the Ohm reading.
