Question about Coleman Mach 15 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

RVP 8000 Series Compressor wont stay running.

I have a Coleman/RVP 8000 Series AC unit and the compressor will start and run for about 10 seconds and then it loads up and stalls. I have checked the run/start capacitors and the thermal overload w/a meter and a tech on the phone and the values were w/in tolerance. The incomeing voltage is about 110v, he said the ac is rated to work on 105v min. so it should be good. I had a meter on the main line and when the ac was running the voltage was about 109v but when the compressor starts loading up after the 10 seconds or so the volage drops and at 103v it stalls.

Try shutting everything else off temporarily that would draw any hydro in the unit, or even shut off all breakers except AC, and see what happens. See if it runs longer with everything else off. Double check nothing else on same circuit as your AC, and also confirm that 12/2 & not 14/2 cable size used for AC.

Coleman mach rv roof ac, the fan comes on but the compressor doesn't, i've replaced all capacitors and stll is not comming on, how do i check voltage to the compressor to maske sure i have pow


At the compressor connectors you have a live and a neutral phase. The live usually goes to a ptc relay starting mechanism which you can test with a meter. If you can disconnect the relay and check the windings of the compressor from one pin to the other two it will tell you if the compressor is open circuit. It is more often than not an overload fault.

RVP 8000 A/C just experienced slight power surge. Compressor on.


I'm leaning toward sticky relay as well, but if you want to confirm it's not thermostat, remove thermostat from wall, and temporarily disconnect the yellow wire from thermostat (compressor) when/if, it happens again. If compressor stays running, I'd say relay for sure.
Just for future reference , Gray wire from thermostat is low fan, green wire is high fan, yellow is compressor, blue is ground. ( For cooling side) The red is 12 v + to furnace and white is negative to furnace.(heat side)

Coleman Mach 3 ac unit tries to start compressor & kicks off


50 foot extention cord not a problem IF it is at least 10 gauge and plugged in to a 20 amp circuit

Your compressor is shutting down for a lack of AC voltage would be my best guess

Compressor tries to start 5-10 seconds gets warm shuts off


Try to replace the capacitor. It this will not work, measure the draw current of the compressor. The lock rotor current is usually given on the plate attached to it. If the current is within or beyond the plate figure, its time to replace the compressor.

Coleman (RVP) 7000 AC unit compressor problem


I had a problem with my coleman mach 3 AC, we were at an RV park up at lake shasta CA and the fan would stay on but the compressor would come on for a few seconds and then trip off. It was the motor overload relay on the compressor that was tripping. the RV park was old and apparently the wiring to the panelboard at the RV park was too small, when you are drawing a lot of current there was too much voltage drop across their line, to make up for this the motor tries to draw more current and heats up the motor overload and it trips off. I solved this problem by buying an autoformer from Camping World, it senses a voltage drop and automatically boosts the voltage.

I am now having a seperate problem, the compressor is either locked up or has too much back pressure and trips off the service breaker when trying to start. The only solution I can see with my current problem is to replace the entire unit.

Need to find schematic on coleman 7333c886 ac

This is the web site for Coleman AC's from RVP. Go under the service manual for the 6700, 7000, 8000 and 9000 series air conditioners and they should have everything that you need.

Hope this helps,
