1988 Fleetwood Wilderness Camper AC fan won't blow capacitor bad

The AC unit on my 1988 Fleetwood Wilderness Camper has a fan that will not blow. I located the run and start capacitors and had them tested. The start capacitor runs "hot" and the run capacitor has an internal short. Noone seems to be able to identify the replacement part for this run capacitor. There are no words/letters/numbers on it and I can't locate specific info on the compressor either. I've been told that most campers this size (25') have 13500 BTU units on them. Any help would be fantastic.

if it is a programmable thermostat you can unhook thermostat and when it comes on select 3 instead of 1. As it sounds as though it is short cycling this happens in older houses with drafts. Hope this helps Tim

Here's a link to a service manual, with step by step tests to determine whats wrong. I'm thinking compressor shot, but this should confirm, and or help you determine for yourself. Be careful with those capacitors eh !! Read warning in service manual.

SOURCE: I have a Mach3 unit with 1 capacitor 35uf 370 VAC

You need to check the Amp draw at start up of the compressor. Also if you have a meter that can check the compressor capacitor, it needs to be checked. If the capacitor is ok and the compressor starts at a higher Amp draw than the rating on the capacitor, you will need a start capacitor.

There is ice forming on the evaporator coils. This is either from a low freon charge or a leak in the seals or windows and doors. Could also be that the drains are not working and water is building up and freezing

Ac compressor will not start


Hello, sounds like a faulty capacitor. Check the capacitor to see if it is puffed up at the terminals. It will be located inside the outside unit and looks like like a can that is oval or round.

I can't locate the 12 volt converter in my camper


They hide them under seats, in closets, in side storage compartments.

The unit is often a shoebox sized box with a power cable in and cables to the battery out. OFTEN the fuses are located centurally for the whole trailer.

While properly charging, you should see about 13.5 to 14 volts across the battery.
