Question about Heating & Cooling

3 Answers

I bought a 40 qt Coleman thermo-electric cooler to use in a semi truck. It worked FINE for about a month--running 24/7 then the insides were all warm and I lost a bunch of perishable food! I bought a replacement motor at a truckstop, but the motor doesnt seem to be a match. The cooler in question is Model 564. the moter was a 564A, I believe. It was the ONLY one available at the time. whats wrong?

    I have the same problem with a Coleman Model 564 Thermo-Electric cooler. I got one as a Christmas gift and it hasn't worked for the two days after I plugged it in.

    Is this company on the level? It's odd that a little ***** fan on the inside is supposed to cool items inside a large interior.

    It really seems as though the fan is merely cosmetic and realy doesn't do anthing at all.

    My next call is to the FTC and the Kansas Attorney General,

    The guy that seems to think cleaning it is right about the old type fan and motor, but he hasn't had the plain 564 model the newer version with the propeller fan not the squirrel cage fan type. My cooler went bad shortly after I bought it,and it was clean no dust, the motor it self is half as big as the old one. I won't buy another coleman product unless I get a full refund or a reliable one.

If you people would take apart the grill on the outside of the cooler and clean the dirt and dust from the fan while you are sitting and waitting for a load it would help out your problem. The inside of your truck isn't as clean as you may think. The fan is just right for this size of cooler it just needs a little "TLC' every now and then.

Unless you go back with same motor you may have to do some modifications. Is the new motor to big to fit where it belongs or is the wiring different. If it's to big you'll have to return it for right one. If the wiring is different then you will have to match up the wires.

Coleman 12-volt cooler stoped working/fan burned out

Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor

Coleman electric cooler fan keeps locking up

This is a common problem with these coolers.

Could be the fan needs to be lubed. Pull the covers off, take the fans off, pull the stickers off the fan and put some light grease in the small hole. Put back together and try it.

BE CAREFUL WITH THE FANS, you can break the blades very easy
