Question about Coleman 805D712T
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
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.
