Question about Coleman Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

RV Airconditioner capacitor overload blew up.

While camping this weekend, my Coleman RV AC unit capacitor overload blew up. The white wire was melted also. The ac unit is 2 years old and had been working fine. It was off when this occurred. Last time used was about 30 hours prior. The motor home is a 1984 with original breaker box and wiring. Any help as to why this occurred?

SOURCE: RV AC, how to wire fan (blower) motor to capacitor.

You almost have it Look closer at the run capacitor. It has Herm, this is for the compressor, Com or C and F or Fan.

1 of your power wires is the fan speed so connect them accordingly usually black is hi, blue med, & red is low. You are "feeding" voltage to the selector switch on 1 side and coming out to the fan motor speeds.

Next you have a "Common" wire on your fan motor (this means its Common to all the other connections inside the fan motor to me. It is usually white. Connect this to the other line of power usually the Com on the capacitor unless it connects to a strip on the selector switch. But 1 of these 2 places will be the other side of your Power when plugged in. Lastly the brown it is usually the fan capicator only wire and it will connect to the fan "F" terminal on the capicator this terminal will not have any other wires connected to it.

This should make you a happy camper. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.

SOURCE: I purchased a 60-Amp Cutler-Hammer Fusible Pullout

The two wires coming from the breaker box go to the terminals marked "LINE". The two wires going to your AC unit go to the terminals marked "LOAD".

Hope you find this to be very helpful. :-)

under the shroud there is a circuit board it has a fuse on it called F-1 this fuse starts the compressor through the thermostat.
the sound you are mistaking for the compressor is the AC fan
yes you can jump the thermostat as it only has 12 volts on the wires
if you start capacitor was bad it would be buldged on the top of it's can and, probably leaking electrolyte

We have a Coleman 7300 rooftop ac unit. When the


The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of
tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

Coleman (RVP) 7000 AC unit compressor problem


I had a problem with my coleman mach 3 AC, we were at an RV park up at lake shasta CA and the fan would stay on but the compressor would come on for a few seconds and then trip off. It was the motor overload relay on the compressor that was tripping. the RV park was old and apparently the wiring to the panelboard at the RV park was too small, when you are drawing a lot of current there was too much voltage drop across their line, to make up for this the motor tries to draw more current and heats up the motor overload and it trips off. I solved this problem by buying an autoformer from Camping World, it senses a voltage drop and automatically boosts the voltage.

I am now having a seperate problem, the compressor is either locked up or has too much back pressure and trips off the service breaker when trying to start. The only solution I can see with my current problem is to replace the entire unit.
