Coleman Powerchill overheating plugin

When I plug the cooler in any 12 volt outlet, the plugin of the cooler gets real hot. The first plug even melted. I'm worry about causing a fire. Is there some problem with the wiring of this cooler? How can I fix this problem?

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Overheated melted light cover could this have caught fire?

This is not a recall but the manufacturer will most likely cover the repair. The relay for the lights is stuck closed on the control board. The repair should include all cosmetic parts that were damaged plus a new improved control board and a new socket assembly with a thermostat built-in. Contact your local certified service depot for the repair.

SOURCE: thermoelectric plate does not appear to transfer heat

you should see if theres a DC voltage going to the plate or not. it should noticeably heat up instantly with proper voltage applied. if power is there and it doesnt heat then the thermoelectric device needs to be replaced. also you should be able to measure a resistance of the plate. Should not be shorted or open. it should be a relatively low resistance. like a few ohms. and it may read different depending on which direction you connect the leads.

Small 12 qt. Coleman cooler (3000000540) works in RV, works plugged into ac adaptor. Doesn't work plugged into 12 volt in my car or my brother-inlaw's car. Phones do charge in these same outlets.


Could be that the 12 volts circuits in your cars are not supplying enough amperage for unit to operate . Low amp items will work but the hungry ones will not.

I have recently bought a 40 qrt coleman eletric cooler. Has it one da y and dc plug stopped working. Replaced fuse, and checkes all volt outlets in truck as well as fuses in fuse panel they all work.


Did you accedently or spark power wires? These have a tendency to blow the diode if that happens. Also check fuse in plug of cooler. Take it apart an look sometimes the wires break.

Can i use a coleman ac adaptor model 5232f640 for charge a car battery


Isn't that the power cord for a Coleman 40 qt Powerchill Thermoelectric Cooler? Without the proper equipment, you take a chance of over-charging and blowing up your battery as it would be a direct current with nothing to regulate it and no needles to let you know how much of a charge it has.
Why not catch a ride down to AutoZone and buy a NOCO/180 mAh 12 Volt solar battery charger (that's right, solar power charger) for less than $25? It comes with 8' of cable and suction cups to mount it on the car while it charges with sun light. Neat little things for sure. I own two.

Kool Mate 40 Cord melt down


The unit itself is the problem. You should call coleman customer service and tell them you have been haveing this problem from the start and ask to talk to a manager. Tell them that the cord has been replaced numerous and that you checkd voltage and this is fine. You want a new unit because it has been happening since you bought it and all the keep sending is the cord. Tell them if anythig bad happens pertaining to safety issues that you don,t want to call the better bussiness office and that they will be responsible for any damage done due to a faulty unit. Be professional about it and I am sure they will help you.

I HAVE A COLEMAL 40 QUART POWERCHILL COOLER. THE MOTOR BURNED OUT AND I CANT FIND THE RPLACEMENT PART. THE PART IN THE DIAGRAM DOESNT LOOK LKE THE 1 I NEED


Coleman 40 Quart PowerChill Thermoelectric Cooler

What diagram are you looking at? I only see one motor in the unit and it's the only one that Coleman has made for your item.

If all else fails, Coleman has a customer service line that can help, 1-800-835-3278 or you can email them at consumerservice@coleman.com

Hope this helps,

Glenn
