Question about Mastercool 67680 Evaporative Cooler Air Conditioner

Open Question

Smell in house after evaporative air conditioner pads were changed.

After changing the wooden pads to my Bonaire SGS evaporative air conditioning unit and restarting the unit a horrid ***** type smell is now prevalent in the house. This did not happen last time I changed these pads and I have been told by the supplier that the pads have been changed. My first test to overcome the smell was to add about 500mls of Pine O Clean. This had virtually no effect. 3 Hours later I have added 2 litres of brown vinegar. An odour in the house still lingers but its no longer like ***** but now more like glue. Overall this is more acceptable and I have much aeration throughout the house at the moment. Is there an alternative and better solution for this odour problem. The air conditioning unit was cleaned prior to the change and the odour is clearly not directly related to the units condition.

SOURCE: New Mastercool pads smell bad

The cellulose pads in a mastercool are glued together and usually the adhesive is what you smell. It may take a while for it to go away. Strange as it may seem, as the pads get more mineralization and you use it more the smell will go away. Do not use a cooler for your whole house without plenty of exhaust through a window or an updux. Coolers work best when there is plenty of freely moving air.

SOURCE: Vulcan-Bonaire : summer breeze

This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.

The problem may be with the drainpump not functioning properly. They sometimes clog up with scale. Easy to remove and clean by opening up the unit. Some units also have an alarm function when the cell pads need replacing. Again this one would be able to see visually. They simply slide out, you would have to locate a supplier and just buy four cellpads.

SOURCE: Question regarding Mastercool Evaporative Cooler

This is just a slight possibility. You may have inadequate exhaust. Open more windows or doors. For every 1,000 CFM of air delivery 2 sq. ft. of unrestricted air relief is required. Check the water distribution system for insufficient water to the pads. Check the pads to ensure they are not clogged and clean if needed.

could be the float valve is stuck or has some object blocking it so it cant cut off the water flow..( adjusting the float hight, or cleaning will solve this) or could be the plastic inserts that carry the pads are cracked & allowing water to escape the unit.( replace the pad carrier)..

If your going up on the roof to fix it... you may as well get a onedose cartridge from the hardware shop & put that in the tank whilest your up there...

Remotes are a pain. Can you get into the unit to see the control box? You need to see if the unit has power. If its new enough it will have some diognostic lights so you can see if it has power. Without that its hard to diognose. Unit Model number is also helpfull. if it looks like the one on this picture it will be etched into a badge on one of the corner pillars. if its a plastic unit it will be on a sticker inside the unit

Bonaire evaporative water keeps running whne the unit is turned off


I would check electric solenoid valve on water line to make sure it is shuting when power is off to blower. Some of these valves can be taken apart and cleaned if it has debris stopping valve ffrom fully closing. To do this shut power off to unit, shut main water supply to cooler. Usually there are four screws holding top cover on valve remove these,remove cover and clean valve. Reassemble making sure that cover gasket is in good condition and properly placed. Turn water and power back on and try unit. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Ive got a mildewy smell coming from my evaporative cooler how do i get rid of it?


This unit needs to be serviced. Try replacing the pads with the sponge like pads.Drain the old water and clean up the pan and pump area. Go down to a pool supply store and buy some chlorine tablets and add to the water. In fact, they make these tablets just for the evaporator units. There are 3 states to water, solid, liquid and gas,
. This will get rid of the smell.

Do not know how to work/maintain swamp cooler


Make sure you have water to the unit, the water pump is on and the fan is working. No water=no cooling.
