Compressing gas generates a lot of heat. Is this a change in behavior, or a new unit that it is just being noticed on?

It is not uncommon for the tube from the compressor head into the tank to get too hot to touch on typical compressors. Not sure what model you have but unless this is new behavior that hasn't been noticed in the past, I'm not sure you have a problem.

True back bar freezing up


Most models have a metal drip collector below the evaporator that has a drain hole in it where the defrosted water goes into before it goes down to the drip trap and then out the drain hose. If the area around the drain hole has cracks, or was punctured during servicing, the drain water can get underneath the tray and run out beside and around the drip tray and never gets into the drain tube and freeze in that location. A careful inspection of this area will reveal any issues.

It's R-22 and you need to be licensed to handle it, if you're not a A/C service technician or fimiliar with charging an A/C system, then it is best to have a Coleman Service Technician to charge it for you.

My coleman mah 3 roof top will not blowon fan side


Sounds like you have either a bad fan motor or a bad fan motor capacitor. When you turn the unit on with the fan not working, the compressor (the humming noise) runs and gets real hot real quick resulting in the compressor cutting off ( the nothing after) on it's inside high temp switch. This is what the compressor is designed to do so that when this happens, it does not burn the compressor out. Replace you fan capacitor, give the compressor an hour to cool, then try it. In most cases and if I'm correct, the unit will run just like you want it to. Good luck.

Rv type,compressor stalls after runing about 5 minutes and will not restart until about 15 minutes later


That cover is not hard to remove. Remove it and check for obstacles first, while it is off :>) I had one do that as it had about a pound of dirt dober nest on the shaft. If that's not it, cut it on and when it stops, cut the power first, and then check to see how hot the compressor is. If it's real hot, try recharging.

Coleman Powermate Model Number BV6548049, pressure switch leak.


Usually, a leak at the pressure switch unloader valve is caused by the checkvalve in the tank. The unloader valve at the pressure switch bleeds out the air from discharge tube after compressor reaches set pressure. This only takes a few seconds. If air continues to leak then air is leaking back into the discharge tube past the tank checkvalve. Follow the air discharge line from the compressor to the brass valve at the tank. The brass valve is the checkvalve that holds the pressure in the tank. There are usually two connections at this valve. One is the unloader tube to the pressure switch. Simple test for leaking checkvalve, with pressure in tank unplug or switch off the compressor and remove the small unloader line at the checkvalve(brass valve) and look/listen for leak. If leaking, remove the checkvalve and examine seat/check for debris keeping the valve slightly open. If it cannot be cleaned, order generic replacement from www.grainger.com. It will cost less than the factory checkvalve. Just pay attention to the thread sizes for easy fit. Good Luck on your repair and email if you have questions.

Coleman outdoor air cond. unit comes on but no blowing of hot air out of the house. Everything else seems to work. O


If the compressor is running, you have a freon problem. If the compressor is not running, you have an electrical problem, unless the compressor itself is bad.

Compressor lines


If the large line returning to the compressor is frosting you don't have enough air circulation. Check air filters on inside unit.
