    The problem was the remote sensor trying to change the fan speed. Replaced sensor no more clicking.

    What do you mean ,"control box" specifically? "There is no control box"having just ooked at the website for Duotherm to see what you had specifically, heat pump, or if they had a strip only model. I see you included no model # as wel, so thet "box"
    I am assuming meant the 2 switches .OFF,LO,MED HI,COOL, HEAT, MODE,
    and the WARMER-COLDER, types for the manually controlled units with no remotely mounted thermostat, as in a home thermostat and not a WARMER-COLDER dial, I have the remote thermostat dou therm in my rv, it has a circuit board, is that what "control box" is? The thermostat is the same universal red white yellow green and common as all others, That inability to troubleshoot a thermostat yet be confident enough to diagnose and replace the "box" is incongruent, as is the "remote sensor" "trying" to change the fan speeds?? No such animal exists nor is that any normal sequence of operation regardless of the model #.
    The assertion doesnt exactly inspire integrity in my ears, theres too many vague incongruencies, and factual errors to be taken seriously at this juncture. I apologize if I aam corrected by a specific qualificationIE actual parts names/#, model#, actual description of components and the actual symptoms that coincide with the normal sequences of operation. I look forward to the actual specifics of what actually happened.

    control box, ? What do you mean specifically

    changed the thermostat still clicks

SOURCE: I have a dometic duo-therm. No air coming through ducts.

I have a new Montana Mountaineer with a Dometic Duo Therm as well and experience something similar.

It appears that there are two options:
1. Open the vents in the unit and all the cold air will blow out of the AC as that would be the shortest path and the there is hardly any air coming out of the ducts.
2. Close the vents in the unit and it will force all the air through the ducts.

We let the air blow straight out of the unit during the day and then force it through the ducts at night to force it in the bedrooms. You could also open the vents in the unit part ways to get a combination.

I didn't figure it out immediatly either, but just look close at the unit and you can see that you can close the vents on the unit itself

SOURCE: duo-therm quick cool

Your compressor is trying to restart after it shuts off which is causing a power draw down changing the sound of the fan speed change. Check voltage power supply and insure that the power supply cord is heavy enough to carry the necessary load.

Duo therm rv air conditioner repair

Sounds like thermostat is failing. There is a factory set resistor that helps the thermostat keep a 2 degree accuracy. Second possibility is that you have a fan or direct airflow from the cooling system, being devirted, that is allowing the cool air hit the thermostat on the wall.

Pay attention to wires from control box itself at the ceiling assy. Sometimes they will use a different color from control box, to thermostat. For example: Green coming out of control box, is attached to a blue running to thermostat, so you would attach that blue, to "G" (fan) on thermostat. Match thermostat colors to what is at the control box originally, not what color they used to run it to thermostat from there. Most try to match them, but others don't. What model Ac unit, and what model of thermostat do you have?

Have a duo therm ac and the low ac and low fan not work -

Thermostat on wall, or manual controls at AC? Did it work for you on low before now? Reason I ask, is that normally they are only a 2 speed fan ( low and high) so if it's a wall thermostat and has been changed from original, perhaps it the way the thermostat is wired.

did you ohm the relays to verify a correct path? It sounds like the relay contacts are not "making" and providing a pth for flow.
