Question about Mastercool 67680 Evaporative Cooler Air Conditioner

1 Answer

No power to water pump

I have power to the cooler. Fan comes on but water pump does not. I pulled the water pump and tested it. It works fine. The electical junction box inside the mastercool 2 unit where the water pump plugs into seems to be missing a plugable fuse. Above the plug is a space for a four pin "something". I think that might be what is preventing getting power to the pump. I can not find the paperwork for the unit so I am not sure what goes there.

    I did find one similar question about the water pump before I posted my question. However, I must have only seen part of the answer because it did not give the info you provided.



    Yes I have a voltmeter. What are the steps?

  • eric_orton May 12, 2009

    Also, it is a 110v a/c unit with a thermostat.

    I will have to wait until this evening when I get home to test.

    This is the second time I answered this -- system problems this morning.



    The four empty holes are most likely for the water pump relay.



    If this is a 110VAC unit with the thermostat on the unit, then this is probably the relay it needs:



    coil 110VAC

    single pole

    contacts 110/220 VAC 10 amp



    I doubt you can find that exact relay w/o a part number -- finding the correct plug would be the difficult part. But, there is a way to determine what type of relay you need and hook it up without actually plugging it into the holes.



    If you have a voltmeter, I can take you through this process., and advise.



  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 12, 2009

    Well, the first part is pretty simple.



    With the unit/thermostat set to where the pump would be running, just set the multimeter on VAC and check the voltage across the "holes".



    Probes across

    What are readings?

Where is the engine fan relay located on 2000 lincoln ls v6


There is no relay on the cooling fan circuit.
If the cooling fan is not operating, check fuse #105 (20 AMP), in the underhood junction box, right front of engine compartment.
If fuse is good then test to make sure fan is getting power.
If no power then could be bad cylinder head temperature sensor, hydraulic fan solenoid, a/c cycle switch or the PCM.
If it has power but doesn't come on then fan motor is bad.

My Nuvo model wine cooling system isn't cooling. The fan is running, but the compressor does not start.


First off, this is high voltage, do not attempt to repair this if you have not worked with 120 or 240 volts!

It may be the temperature control thermostat or the compressor. You will need a volt meter or a test lamp that is rated for the voltage your wing cooler uses. Check the voltage at the compressor (you might have to open a junction panel or box to gain access). If no voltage, unplug your cooler and check with a low voltage battery powered continuity lamp that the temperature control thermostat is at fault by turning it to the coldest setting. Connect the tester across the thermostat and if it does not light the thermostat is at fault.


I hope this helps you!

Dry pad


Check for plugged holes in the top water distribution tray where the water from the pump exits to wet the pads.

My cooling fan will not turn on. What could this be? I had someone tell me the water pump, but it does not leak.


Step 1:

This cooling fan circuit has 2 cooling fans and 2 cooling fan relays, both cooling fan relays are located in the BJB (battery junction box, underhood fuse box) there is a low speed or main cooling fan relay in cavity location # K-46 and the high speed relay is location # K-47! Also check the main cooling fan power fuse # 2 in the same BJB, The fuse is a MAXI-FUSE (large one) it is blue in color and is rated at 60amps!

Step 2:

Also check the coolent tempature sensor thats what signals the fan to turn on.

Step 3:

Do the fans turn on when you turn the a/c on. if not may have bad fan motor

The cooling fan will not come on. Tested fan separately, it works. I by passed the heat sensor as Clymer suggested and ground the heat sensor wire to the frame to try to make the fan come when the ignition...


Use the process of elimination, you know the fan is good, now you should test the heat sensor. when the bike is cold the heat sensor should not let power past it to the fan, but when the bike is warm then the sensor should then let the power through, so test it either with a test light or an ohm meter! If the sensor is bad then thats the problem if not then check the wiring diagram to make sure there is nothing else on the same circut! If you need further help just drop me a line!

Wall switch and remote quit working for fan and light


Simple things to check - sometimes the vibration from the fan will cause the wires to come loose. Drop the fan and make sure both wire nuts are secure - take the opportunity to check and make sure you have voltage (using a voltmeter or a 110v test light) at the junction box. Do you have lights on the fan? Do they come on? If you have power to the fan, something is amiss inside the fan such as a faulty speed switch or connection.

Air coming out of an adobeair portable evap cooler isnt cold


paula298,
A new unit will take a while for the pad to become wet and more efficient. Remember, there may be two switches: fan and water pump. The unit must be full of water and the pump ON to work correctly.

If the unit has a water pump only setting, run the pump without the fan for about 20 minutes. That will get the pads nice and wet and you should get a good result. A rule of thumb in the desert is 20 to 25 degrees of cooling compared to the ambient air.

Don't use a cooler in closed area. The cooler will simply act like a room humidifier. Use in an open garage or porch for the best result.

I hope that helps.

Low voltage wires


I just tested a mastercool control box and found these 4 control wire colors:

Red (24v supply)
White (pump)
Green (low blower)
Yellow (high blower)

The yellow acted as a common for testing when the blower was not on high.

Blower on low just green has 24v.
Blower on high green and yellow have 24v.

If there was a fifth wire added hopefully it would be a ground wire.

There was also the low gauge wires that were black, white, and ground that were not control wires and delivered power to the control box.
