If the compressor is not even trying to start you have an electrical problem in the circuit for the compressor. The thermostat could be open and not supplying power to the compressor or the thermal overload device could be open.

I have a trailer with a duo therm ac..the outside fan is coming on but nothing is blowing thru the registars


Not sure where your located, so check that unit didn't freeze up on you. Make sure evaporator and condenser coils/fins are clean and run on fan only to aid in thawing them out. Once you see condensation running off roof good, try using cool again and see what happens. When they freeze up, airflow gets restricted through unit. The outside fan and blower wheel for forced air inside are attached to same motor, so if fan is working, blower wheel should be turning as well unless it is broken, or allen key has come loose on clamp around center of blower wheel. Other possibility is that the blower wheel is turning but forced air ducts have blockage at inlet, which will require letting ceiling assembly down to inspect, or removing cover on roof and screws at front evaporator and opening it up. Make sure power is off during inspection.

I have a Duo-Therm roof top. The compressor wont shut off. When the stat is satisfied the fan stops but not the compressor. I pulled the metal control box but didnt see a real set of contacts. Where are...


Trace the wires from the compressor back to where they come from. They should be coming from a contactor or from the circuit board. It's possible the relay is built into the circuit board (it will look like a little black box on the board. Let me know what you find.

Have Duo Therm roof mount A/C. Fan runs but when compressor tries to come on it just has a hum sound for about 10 seconds then after a short period of time it tries again but will not kick on


It sounds like the compressor is locked up. You can try a start boost or hard start kit but once this starts the compressor is on it's way out.

Duo therm roof top a/c


Sounds like 1 of 3. Blower motor capacitor, relay or thermostat. Try to run fan only if that is an option and see.
