Question about Coleman Mach III Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Coleman mach fan runs fine but A/C hums intermittently like it wants to start but won't. I'm running it with a Honda 2000 generator. Generator ran out of gas, when I restarted the generator the A/C would not run - stalls out the generator. I replaced the start and run capacitors on the A/C, hook up the generator and it ran fine until the generator ran out of gas. The A/C would not start up only hum intermittently - same problem as before replacing capacitors. Waited several hours with the fan only and tried tyo switch on the A/c still would not start. Any suggestions on what to do next?

The issue with the generator that gets low and high when it start running out of gas that effect the A/C and result of high voltage getting to the unit and burn the capacitors and it should by saved by the fuse make sure that the gen not run out of gas if you have the A/C on and that the fuse is the correct one for the A/C and again check the air and see you may got a bad capacitor.

Sounds like possible fan capacitor failure. If your not familiar with capacitors, please find someone who is, as they can give a fatal electrical jolt if not handled properly.

Unit is humming but neither fan turns on? Is it a start cap, fan cap, or run cap? Or none of the above.


Yes,most likely a bad capacitor. It is a dual capacitor that runs both the compressor and the fan.

Sounds like you have either a bad fan motor or a bad fan motor capacitor. When you turn the unit on with the fan not working, the compressor (the humming noise) runs and gets real hot real quick resulting in the compressor cutting off ( the nothing after) on it's inside high temp switch. This is what the compressor is designed to do so that when this happens, it does not burn the compressor out. Replace you fan capacitor, give the compressor an hour to cool, then try it. In most cases and if I'm correct, the unit will run just like you want it to. Good luck.
