Need switch for colman a/c unit

I have been looking for a switch for a colman a/c unit. It is for a camper and it is old and the manufacture said the switch is no longer made and they have no subsitute. the switch part number is 6250a3311. I know the switch has 5 conecting points on back. The color of the wires are 1 blue, 1 black, 1 red, and 2 orange. Here are the modle numbers the switch will fit on 6248, 6250, 6258, and 6259. the switch turns the fan on high or low and also turns the a/c unit on max or normal. If you have any sugestions of a difrent kind of switch that will work and how to wire it that would be a big help to me. One more thing it is just a a/c unit no heat. thank

Re: need switch for colman a/c unit

Jason, if you are willing to to a little wire tracing, you can do this! We're going to create a new switch function. Chances are that two of the wires are probably for the fan motor (high and low). I'm not sure about max and normal. This uses a two position switch. Figure out which wires go where...then...get a '3 way' switch from the hardware store (they contain a common and two 'poles') along with a plastic box to contain them, a double switch cover and some 'heavy duty zip cord'. This is lamp cord but a heavier grade called number 16 or number 14 (14 preferred). Extend each of the wires and tape the connections. Now, threading the wires into the power box, hook the two fan wires that come to the switch to the new switch. Now, the common terminals and the power supply wire (probably the black) should be hooked together. It should all work...ugly but functional. If you need an on/off switch, you can make that a three gang box and include a standard on/off switch. If you can figure out the max/normal function, you can either switch it on or off or either/or...depending on the switch function. Hope this helps.

The add water light continues to blink even tho the reservoir is full. Therefore the water won't heat. The unit is only about 6 months old

Try filling the water reservoir with some water and white vinegar and let sit. This may be a build up of hard water deposits. Rinse and try again.

If it does not resolve, contact the manufacturer customer support for assistance.

DCC-1150 Coffee Maker does not have power

Talked to Cuisinart tech support and they told me to unplug and leave it for 2 hours... that resets it to the factory defaults.
It looks like a thermal fuse might have blown inside your appliance.
If a thermal fuse has failed, there is probably another problem inside.
If the appliance is 4 months old, still cover under manufacturers warranty, Call the Cuisinart customer service to ask them where to find an authorized service center.
Hope this works for you.

We have a 2 year old Cuisinart COD 4000 series. The unit will no longer starts. We put on brew cycle and turn knob to on. Light comes on. Hear a click but it does not brew anymore. Have unplugged unit...

I just had the same exact issue, call cuisinart customer service and they'll replace it. The unit has a 3 year warranty, I had no receipt or anything and they are sending a new unit, all they ask is that I cut the power cord off of the old one and send it in.

When I turn the switch the lights come on but nothing else happen

Depending on how old your unit is and the availability of replacement parts I would suggest looking into a new coffee maker. The control panel is malfunctioning and by the time you spend on replacing just that part you could pay for a new one. They're quite affordable now.

Our Cuisinart DCC 2000 is dead after only 6 months. I would like to get a replacement from the manufacturer. How do we prove the coffeemaker is under warranty still?

This model has a VERY WELL-KNOWN and wide-spread design flaw. The condensation runs down the back and destroys the micro-computer that runs the works. Cuisinart has been less that forth-coming and just replaces with another, equally boadly designed, replica that then, gee, what a surprise! - also fails in about 9 to 12 months.

Great idea but a BAD design and a less than responsible manufacturer.

Maybe if they caught fire like the old Mr Coffee's then the manufacturer would step up to the plate and solve the problem rather than hoping that their customers just get tired of having to fight.

Main switch not working

There is a slow blow fuse on the motherboard.  Easy enough to replace once the top is taken off, and the motherboard removed. You need Torx & Philips head screwdrivers.  There are guides how to remove it on the net.
