Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

When activated, the thermostat stays on for about 45 sec. and then kicks out indicating a gfi problem . . . this seems far too sensitive . . . can I override this in some manner?? Thanks, Wayne


You can replace the wall outlet with a GFI type and cut the ac cord end off and install a basic 3 prong for 120 volt system. AC unit controls don't like ground faults and should be corrected. The cord gfi may be going out.

I have a Frigidaire air conditioner. I've never had a problem with it,at all until a few minutes ago. It all of a sudden quit working. I pushed the reset button and tried to push power, but nothing....


First check the outlet the unit is plugged into. It may be dead, due to a circuit breaker being tripped. Also, the interior of the outlet may be damaged or has a loose wire.

If a circuit breaker was tripped, unplug the unit before resetting the circuit breaker. Then plug the unit back in and turn it ON. If the breaker trips again, there may be a short in the AC wiring or there is another electric appliance on that same circuit, that may be causing an overload, when the AC unit is ON.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I turned my ac on and it made a little snap noise like a fuse and would not come on at all


Check the circuit breaker in your homes breaker panel for a tripped circuit breaker. With what you described, I suspect the unit shorted out and tripped the breaker. The problem may not be the AC unit, though. It may be the outlet it's plugged into. A loose or worn wire.or a cracked receptacle. If it's not the outlet, the short is in the AC unit and is not easy to trace. You will probably need to let a qualified service person look at it.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

No power to unit


Whether this is a window unit or a built-in unit, check the source of the power. Is there a circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel that has been tripped? If so, it's probably the one that serves the AC unit. Reset the breaker and see if it trips again, after you turn the AC unit ON. If it does, either that circuit is overloaded or there is an electrical short in the AC unit.

Hope his helps you troubleshoot the problem.

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year


A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

My ac circuit breaker keep tripping


If your outside condenser has a locked rotor or short circuit, than the unit WILL trip the breaker - as it should. On the other hand if a breaker is tripped a few times it will have less of a capacity that the rating, (this is designed in it). You will need to determine if the unit is locked (and broken) or the breaker has become too sensitive.
