Question about Heating & Cooling
My Coleman pop-up air conditioner fan is working fine, but when you turn the cooling system on, it immediately trips the breaker in the camper.
Looks like you have a problem on you're compressor circuit.
I'm assuming that this is a pretty small unit...On you're circuit you should have a start relay/overload located on the compressor connection itself and a capacitor.
To troubleshoot this you will need a multimeter set on ohm, to check resistance from the compressor to ground.
Once you have pull the plastic relay from the compressor (power should be disconnected by now!) You will exposed 3 connectors on the compressor. Put 1 probe on the compressor casing and move the other probe to the 3 connectors on the comp. If you have any resistance (if you ear a beep) you have a grounded compressor and that's that, might as well give up now and get yourself a new one.
I can tell you how to check the capacitor and the relay if the compressor check out OK. my name is Benge (nick name Benge007)
Let me know, I'm knew at Fixya, I'm just doing this for fun, free
