Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Breaker box clicks on then air conditioner still running but warm

Breaker box clicks on then air becomes warm. I have tried everything. It seems as though when I change the temperature on the thermostat then the breaker clicks on. I thought at first I may have needed some freon, not the case. Electrician came, breaker is good. Put in a new capacitor, same thing happened. Breaker box clicked, warm air. I want to know if the inside thermostat have anything to do with the breaker and then the arm air.

When you say breaker box clicks and then warm air, are you referring to the actual breaker switch in your power panel, or clicking at your ceiling assembly? When the breaker trips, the air conditioner should shut down completely, is that what happens? The compressor kicking in and out could cause circuit breaker to trip. Did the electrician record incoming voltage supply, and what was it ? 115 volts?

There is an over temperature thermostate in the heating system and it is most likely defective.

My heater will not blow hot air in my 1999 Chrysler Cirrus


When the coolant flush was done, did you have the thermostat changed as well? I would have the thermostat replaced. If the temperature gauge was reading properly, but you still had warm, not hot air, it would lean more towards the heater core being clogged, but that deosn't seem to be the issue your having, so i would go with the thermostat replacement. And whereever you have the repairs done at...make sure they fully bleed all the air out of the cooling system, this could also cause poor warm-up / heating problems. Hope this helps...

Central ac/ heater (electric)...The heater quit working in the mid of the night, only cool air is exiting the vents. Everything else seems normal except the air is not warm anymore. We need warm air,...


check batteries in thermostat? you'll need a voltage tester,either neon light or vom.check to see if breaker is tripped.throw back and forth if it looks ok.remove cover check to see if power is getting to breaker then out of breaker.The heat is turned on with a low voltage circuit. check to see if you have 24 volts coming out of transformer.if all this checks out it gets real tricky. power to heating elements is switched via switches that are back a ways amongst lots of wires.very dangerous to work on with power on.I don't recommend trying to go further.

My thermostat when prgrammed and set on "auto" mode kicks on heat when temp drops below set temperature. The problem is that after warming up to that temperature...it does not shut the fan off. ...


I have a honeywell TH8320U thermostat and American standard Air handler with heating unit put in. THE thermostat works fine with the ac and follows the programs I have set. However the heat is a different story. The thermo clicks on to follow program but the unit does not run. (auto settings) If I place the thermo in heat and turn it to on I get heat?

I have a bottom freezer model that also freezes on top! I've cleaned the coils underneath (and it was pretty bad), and that seemed to work for about a week, but now the unit seems to run alot even though...


cleaning the coils is always a good idea, that's how the unit disipates the heat it pumps from the inside of the box. clean coils make it work more efficiently. Frosty suggests a door gasket leak, allowing fresh, moisture ladden air in, that turns to frost. Runs all the time- check door gaskets. they are replaceable. Could also be a bad thermostat. thermostat is running the fridge, trying to reach the set temperature but won't shut off when it reaches it. Unplug the fridge or shut off the breaker is easier. (good wiring practice mandates a dedicated circuit for refrigerators). change the thermostat.

Does the model cool by allowing cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator or does it have separate cooling equipment like some sub zero's? Is there something blocking air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator?

Carrier Comfort 13 Puron model 24ACA3 / FV4NB006 installed 3/18/08 no longer cooling. Carrier AC1-100 Thermostat checked per manual - all default settings intact. Test override did not turn unit on though....


Verify 24 volts at the low voltage transformer inside the air handler. If it is OK, jump out the red/green and yellow thermostat wires. If everything comes on, replace the thermostat.

HEATER NOT HEATING


If your heater is not blowing warm air, your thermostat is probably sticking or your coolant level is critically low. When you start your vehicle, your radiator coolant begins warming up from being cycled through your engine block. One the cooland reaches a certain temperature (usually 130-150 degrees F.), your thermostat spring will retract and allow coolant to then pass into your heater core. However, if your coolant level gets too low, or if you are using a coolant mixture that has more water than antifreeze, thermostats have a tendency to rust and corrode and will stick. Thermostats can also go bad for what seems like no reason at all. The good thing is that usually thermostats are pretty easy to replace. It's the most common thing that would cause the problem that you're explaining. However, if changing the thermostat doesn't fix the issue, there is always the possibility that you could have a collapsed hose somewhere under your hood. If you change your thermostat and none of your hoses are in bad shape, you most likely will have a vacuum line to reconnect under the dash, as most heater controls in late model vehicles are vacuum operated. I'm almost positive that the thermostat will be your culprit though. **Make sure when installing the new thermostat that you use a new gasket or O-ring, whichever applies. Afterwards, start the vehicle and watch to see if you have any leaks around the thermostat housing and continue to observe until the temperature of the vehicle gets to normal operation temperature.

I hope this helps, and hopefully you'll have heat pumping through your vents in no time at all!
Have a great day and try to keep warm!
