My colman rooftop ac unit shuts off after 5 min of use wait 5 more and you can turn it back on again when its running it works great its on a 1984 holiday rambler and has very low hours?

Try a new fan motor. It runs about $125.00, It will run a few min. then will trip the motor themal switch. you can probably still here the compressor running. It may also trip the breaker on shore power . good luck! the part you are looking for is a 1/3 hp 115vac 2 speed 1580/1020 rpm part number #1468-3069

Rv air cond runs great then just cuts off. Will stay off for 1-2 hours and cut back on. Moving the switches changes nothing.

Pull filter off at ceiling and look in at coils and see if all frosted up, and let me know what you find. Check when it shuts down.

Fan cutting on and off every 5 mins

The only thing that is going to but the fan off is the thermostat. When the fan stops, immediately check the thermostat on the wall. See is there is power between the B terminal and the GH terminal. If none, then replace the thermostat. If there is, then replace the control board in the AC. That means that the fan relay on the printed circuit board is weak.

We have a Coleman 7300 rooftop ac unit. When the

The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of
tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

Air cond works for 10-15 min. then pops circuit breaker.

Start capacitor, fan motor or the compressor is worn out. Most times its start capacitor. Thanks, Sea Breeze
