Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Dometic Blizzard 1300 roof top unit blowing fuses

When I turn on the unit it trips the main rcd switch in the caravan and the site we're connected to. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could try looking for. Also - does anyone have the manual for this model? Thanks.

I have a Dometic 640315 that was installed by rv manufacter on breaker 15 amps. When i try to used it the breaker goes off.

I believe it is supposed to have a 15. Remember, breakers are installed TO PROTECT THE WIRE, NOT THE EQUIPMENT. If a breaker is tripping you just don't put a bigger breaker. The wire must be the correct size for the breaker. Take it to the manufacture.

How do i repair my dometic air con unit on caravan

When you say safety switch do you mean fuse or breaker? If your breaker is popping(110 volt) then if probably is your compressor overloading the system.i would do as advised before and remove shroud(cover on roof) and clean coils or fins with some otc coil cleaner. Ive been in the buisness eight years and only one time have i change a compressor. Most people get a new ac. Sorry for the bad news

Find out why my freezer is shorting

Is your FREEZER is plugged into a wall socket which is protected by an EARTH LEAKAGE UNIT or RCD [Residual Current Device] ???
Most manufacturers advise NOT to have this type of appliance connected through an RCD as the start load required when the COMPRESSOR "kicks in" is quite large [especially in larger fridge/freezer units] AND will quite often TRIP your RCD. These appliances are better connected to a separate electrical circuit if at all possible and not protected by an RCD.

My house fuse box is fitted with a master RCD. A feed off a lounge socket goes threw the wall and feeds an external weather proof RCD box which when switched supplies my garden lights. If a garden light...

Appears the main box RCD is just as fast as the secondary RCD and it sensed the same fault that triggered the outside unit and it didn't wait around to see if that outside unit did the job.
