DOMETIC DUOTHERM KICKS THE BREAKER MAY RUN FOR A DAY OR MAY RUN FOR 8 HOURS BEFORE IT DOES IT IN MILD OR HOT WEATHER. ALREADY REPLACED BREAKER AND MADE SURE WIRES ARE TIGHTNED. HELP PLEASE.


If all appears OK, no noise, good cooling suggest check thermostat. If the thermostat is allowing the compressor to short cycle, restart under load the breaker would be expected to blow do to overloading the compressor.

There is usually a 5 minute time delay in the thermostat that prevents this.

Frigidaire window air conditioner LRA157MT1 worked yesterday. Today fan works but it doesn't cool?


unplug it if you can and let it set for 20 minutes, set the temp control where you want it and plug it in, wait a bit and see if it starts cooling. you can confuse these things if you turn it off and on rapidly or change the temp control up and down sporadically. The compressor has to take it's time to kick on after it has been shut off and then on again.

Ac works but when compressor cycles, it wont come back on until i rev engine to 4500 to 5000 rpm's and compressor kicks back on until it cycles again. i have to repeat reving engine every time com


you need to check the pressure of the system if the system is a little low on freon it will cycle more also if the cooling fan is not working the pressure will raise and also shut off

Check for a bad start relay/capacitor on compressor. That motor will not start running unless it gets a kick in the behind from those devices.

I think, your compressor gets over heated due to condenser block-clean it. Less rpm fan speed. -Replace capacitor. 3.Check compressor running capacitor. If weak replace it. Helpful?

SOUNDS LIKE A OVER HEATED CONTROL SWITCH   THE SWITCH THAT CHANGES HIGH, LOW FAN, HIGH COOL, LOW COOL. REMOVE INSIDE CEILING SHROUD AND LOOK AT SWITH FOR BURNT TERMINALS OR LOOSE WIRES TURN OFF POWER FIRST AT BREAKER.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Dometic a/c, duotherm thermostat, turns right back on after it reaches desired temperture.


I have a dometic 13500 BTU Roof mount a/c. It is set up with the duo-therm analog thermostat. The system cools fine. The problem is that the a/c gets down to the right temp, then it turns off like it should but turns right back on within a few seconds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
