    Depends. Is it leaking from a pipe, a fitting, or a coil?

Leaks can be repaired, some quite easily and others while difficult to find - and get to - prove somewhat more difficult.

The problem with 'leaks' is sometimes they are 'high pressure leaks' which are some of the more difficult ones to find.

So... the answer to your question is yes - but.

I would try and get a very experienced Service Tech to fix the leak, and one who will stand behind his work.

good luck!

I HAVE DOMETIC DUO-THERM PENGUIN ROOF AIR CONDITIONING ON RV. THE UNIT WILL RUN WHEN PLUGGED INTO ELECTRICITY BUT WHEN GENERATOR POWERED THE AC UNIT KILLS THE GENERATOR ENGINE. WHAT COULD IT BE?


What size & type generator? On start up the AC unit can draw as much as 17-18 amps in some cases, and if your generator is not designed for a quick draw like that it will die.

I have a 13500 btu ac dometic penguin model on pan that is old and would like to replace with 15000 btu ac of any other manufacturer or another dometic what are my options ..I do not have ducts and do not...


Your choices are another Dometic or a Coleman
I prefer the Coleman But the amount of extra cooling you will get by stepping up to a 15K unit will probability not be worth the added cost

You know what, I have never ran into that yet in 15 years, so I think your best bet would be to go to, (dometicusa.com) and send then a quick inquiry to confirm, what would be required, they are usually pretty helpful believe it or not.

My Dometic 620315 Penguin roof a/c does not produce cold air.


If the compressor is running with no cold air the unit is more than likely no good. It can not be recharged. you need a new unit. If the compressor is not running you need to check the capacitors.
