This is a thermoelectric (TE) cooler. There is no gas' to replace in it's cooling system. It is possible the thermoelectric coupler has gone bad. Unfortunately Coleman does not seem to offer a replacement part. If you Google thermoelectric couplers, maybe you can find something on the web. Good Luck.

The most common issues with Coleman's Thermoelectric coolers is dust clogging the heat sink AND the fan motor burning out.

You can test both simply by using compressed air to blow the dust out of the heat sink.

You can test and see if the motor is burned out by watching through the vents and if the fan doesn't spin then that's your issue.

You just need a basic tool kit and basic wiring skills or be able to follow instructions. Instructables is a great place to find out how to do basic wiring.

My coleman electric cooler model 5640 does not get cold. The fan is on but it is not getting cold. Can I fix it?


For that to happen the electronic component that causes to cool the container already defective. It need to be replace with similar parts.
You can fix it, if you have some knowledge in electronic or electrical, know how to test of component parts, able to use test instruments.
If you don't have such knowledge, call a service technician to do that.
Good luck.

I have a model 5645 and it has stopped cooling


the outside fan can be replaced with a 92 x 25 mm computer cooling fan. Inside fan is a 60 x 10 mm. Remove the cover on the inside by pulling straight up. Plug it in and check if the metal heat sink on the inside is getting cold. If it does, then the problem is one or both of the fans.

Coleman Electric Cooler doesn't stay cold


the most common problem is that one or both cooling fans has failed. If you have the newer version, you can get replacement fans anywhere computer parts are sold

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

I purchased a Coleman model 564 cooler about june 1,2008 at Wal-mart. I used it for two trips to Canada,June and August,one week each. The fan operates spasmodically and the unit does not cool. I believe...


I had the same problem with the fan...its junk.. don't try to replace it with the same kind of fan. I went to radio shack and got a 3.15"square brushless fan. You could go to a computer store and get the 3 &5/8" fan with ball bearings and it would fit just like the old one. Fans run about $15 to $20 depending on location. I cut the old one out and sodered the new one in and it works fine now. Hope this helps. Larry Crockett at crockett2242@yahoo.com Let me know how it works.

I bought one but it was missing the cord, so I hooked it to the benchtop supply. I found out if you place positive to the red terminal/grey wires under the outside cover and negative to the blue/black wires it cools. With a DPDT switch and a couple of LEDs you could wire it so you dont need that special coleman cord, any lighter cord will work provided it can handle about 6 amps, I recommend 12 to 14 gauge wire and a 6 amp fuse.

Coleman 5640 cooler


The cover on the inside just pulls off. Inside/Outside fans pull off. 2 screws to dismount motor. Unscrew leads to terminal. Most truckstops carry the motor, otherwise search for Colman 5640.

Have a coleman 5640 heating/cooling unit and the motor won't run unless just a tiny amount of pressure added?? Any suggestions?


Yes, to change from heat to cool is done by reversing the power plug that is close to the housing. Matching the blue on the plug(as I recall) makes it cool. The red to blue makes it a heater. If it is currently heating, the unit works fine, it just needs the polarity reversed.
Good luck,
Glenn
