Question about Mastercool 67680 Evaporative Cooler Air Conditioner

3 Answers

Frequent short cycles of the Mastercool swamp cooler

The cooler starts and runs for perhaps 3-5 minutes and then stops for about the same length of time. I beleive there is some way to lengthen the cycle so that is will run longer and stay off longer. It is probably an adjustment in the thermostat. The unit cools nicely but the on/off is annoying and probably not good for the motor. In the desert here swamp coolers are a blessing because we get moisture in the air besides much cheaper to run than the A/C.

    I should have mentioned that I already replaced the thermostat.

    Thanks for the info. Turns out that the breeze from the cooler hits the thermostat, making the cycles to short.

Short cycling can also occur in a thermally protected motor if it is overheating. If the other solution did not work, make sure the belt on the motor is not too tight or too loose. A handy person can check the amperage with an amp probe to make sure it is in limits. The adjust the pulley to put it into specs.

Try to replace the thermostat. Short cycling of motor only happens when the thermostat is set to a very high temperature.

    Then try to replace the relay that goes with the thermostat. The holding coil might not functioning well.

Can you usen the sam air vent for heating and swamp cooler


Yes you can. I have that set-up in my house. The only problem is when moisture laden swamp cooled air goes past the heat exchanger. This could cause the exchanger to rust out, allowing carbon monoxide to come into the house when the heater is used. This can be avoidid by having a one way damper made by an HVAC shop, and installing it at the heater.

We have an older swamp cooler and need to have some windows in our home open to get best cooling. Does a mastercool need to have some windows open in our home to give max cooling?


The solution is to install "up ducts" These devices are easy to install and are fairly cheap. With a swamp cooler the best way to use them is to allow them to draft outside with the "up duct" you get the drafting to the outside but also get to remove attic heat too.
