Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
I need more information. And if you have worked on AC's before? Thes main things to check I believ is the fan motor I just wrote out a long explanation as to what to check and look for and I think it got lost. SO I believe your hearign the compressor continue to run even when the fan stops.
Eventually the compressor over heats and stops. this is when nothig runs. Here is where I believe te indoor coil has been covered with Ice-frost and when the compressor stops the ICE FROST melts and you get water on your floor.
The motor could be bad or the run capicator I also believe your indoor coil (and most likely the outdoor one too) is plugged up or dirty. A dirty outdoor coil is the most often cause of motor over heating and or capicator failure. If you can look through the fins of the outdoor and indoor coil ALL OVER then they are clean. Any area stopped up over 20% and you need to wash them out.
Take your capicator out and have it checke by someone with a capicator checker. They will most likely have a replacement if needed. Check the "STIFFNESS" of the motor bearings. If you spin it and it turns over 2 or 3 times or more the bearings are probably ok. If it has oil holes add about 20 to 40 drops lite machine oil to the bearings. If they are sealed... Start looking for a repairman or take care if your goin to change it yourself. Too many factors to go into here about changing a motor. And some may or maynot apply.
Hope this helps you if I need to more clear get back to me and well discuss it more. GOOD LUCK!
