AC is off but compressor cycles periodically

My RV rooftop AC compressor cycles about 45-60 seconds every 5 mintues or so even though the thermostat is off and it is not trying to cool the interior?

    Aaron, Thanks very much. Looks like it is time to visit the RV repair shop. I was hoping it might be something I could do myself, but I'm not comfortable messing around the inside of the unit.

Most likely your compressor contact is stuck closed, and will need to be replaced. if the fan also runs when the compressor comes on you may have a short between the t-stat and unit. hope this helps.

My domestic rv ac unit reaches the temp setpoint and the compressor shuts off but not the fan, it just keeps on running. Is this normal or should the fan shut off also?


Set fan setting to auto and not high or low setting. Fan will cycle with compressor after setting set to auto or " au" if a digital thermostat.

Why does the Dometic 15000 BTU RV AC Unit cycle on and off in short bursts?


I had the same problem with my 2013 Alpine! I took it to a Keystone dealer and of course it wouldn't do it for them, so I contacted Dometic 574-294-2511 and asked for Al McGuire! (GREAT GUY) He is the guru of Dometic! I live 50 miles from the nearest dealer and he sent a new pc board AND a new wall thermostat to an appliance repair shop at no cost! "I" replaced them ( 5 minute job) and it has been working fine. I do keep my fingers crossed because the thermostat is terrible to program.

Dometic AC cycles on and off


sounds like you don't have enough of a charge in the system of "free-on". that would make the a/c cycle and cycle to try and keep the pressure up and would also contribute to the lines frosting and freezing

We turned the ac unit control knob in between the high cool and low cool, which turned off the ac unit, but messed it up where it shorts the circuit breaker when we try to turn it back on. What did we do?


YOU MIGHT OF JUST SHORT CYCLED IT . ALL AC UNITS NEED ABOUT 3-5 MIN TO EQUALIZE PRESURE ON COMPRESSOR BEFORE RE STARTING  . IF THIS IS RV AC MAKE SURE YOU HAVE WELDING TYPE EXTENSION CORD
