Probably a bad limit switch on the strips or the heat sequencer/relay is falling out after continued amp draw. I would lean toward the heat relay/sequencer. Havent heard of any problems with coleman limit switches. These units were prone to get water inthe electrical compartments due to the evap coil being right above it. Check to see where the power break is starting at the strips and working backwards throught the circuit. That will tell you for sure. Make sure you have 24v going to the heat sequencer too.

There should be an overload protection device in series with the low voltage wiring(t-stat wiring) Is it resting on the heat strip or too close to it? It is a saftey device to shut off the heat strips if the fan quits or a fire in the heat strip section. check that or by pass it, if it stays running then ur thermal protector is bad, couple bucks at the parts house.

Depending on the unit it might be possible but the 1st thing you have to do is change the wire to your unit probably to # 6 depending on the KVA rating of the heat strips. Your unit because it's gas it is wired only for 20 or 30 amps & most electric strips are 60 amps.

No heat from unit so we have to be using space heaters


Please get back with model number of unit. You should be able to see it when you take filter access down from ceiling, and it should be tag on bottom of the upper unit. Has heater worked before? I'm asking because many advertise that you can use for heat as well, but heat strip/coil, is always an option, and quite often isn't even installed.

How difficult / expensive is it to install a heat strip in a Dometic roof top AC? The unit I have has a mark on the knob for heat, but I suspect it was never installed.


Fairly easy. The only thing that you must figure out is how many amps the heat strips will draw. Make sure the fuses and the breaker switch can handle them. And be aware your electric bills will shoot up.

Did you purchase a new Ducted Ceiling Unit with the Upper Unit air conditioner? If you are replacing an older mach 3, the ducted ceiling packs are not compatible and you will need to purchase the ceiling pack as well. The ducted ceiling pack part number for the 8333 series Mach III AC is below.

1. Heat/Cool Air Distribution Box - 8330B735
2. Cool only ADB - 8330A733
3. Wall Thermostat (if needed) - 7330G3351

Hope this helps.

When I turn the air on the heat strips comes on at the same time


Is this a central heat? From the size i assume it is.
You say air conditioning on part of your question then use heat pump on another part. So it is important for us both be on the same page.
With all due respect some people think they have a heat pump and it is just AC and electric heat also but is not a heat pump.
. If you have the outdoor AC unit running with your thermostat set for heat and the air coming off the out door unit is cold, or you see it "steam up outdoors" off the out door unit at times (we call this mode defrost).

If you actually have a Heat pump system some times it is wired to have the strips come on at the same time the heat pump comes on especially if you experience a lot of weather below 40' occasionally and have an emergency heat setting on your thermostat you most likely have a heat pump.

If you have a heat pump for sure now the heaters can come on with the outdoor section if
1 they are wired to do so or
2 the thermostat has 2 stage heating and the second stage is telling the elements to come on, or
3 the outdoor thermostat (if so equipped) is telling the elements to come on.
Any 1 or combination of these 3 items can cause the elements to come on wit the out door unit.

I have a coleman heat pump that is about 22 years old and never had a problem. but now my heat strips at times, start to operate at the same time the unit is cooling. thinks for any help


I would check the control wiring. At some point two bear wires are touching. When the cooling mode is energized it is causing the heat relay to also pull in. Check for visible damage to insulation at any point where two wires can make contact with each other.
