I have my dometic Rooftop ac unit. The heatstrip/fan run perfectly but when I turn on the ac...the fan runs good but when the compressor kicks on it just hums.

The compressor coming on does make a slight "humming" sound which is normal. Is the unit cooling properly? Do you think it is louder than before?

DX-2517 AC HUM


As you posted/described, internal work had been done at the factory then perhaps the source/cause of the AC hum is external.

If the unit is being used as a base with a regulated power supply, then the power supply has to be checked. This would include the big capacitor, the diodes and the regulator transistors. On certain occasions, loose transformer E core can also cause the hum.

There are also instances that other electrical devices can cause the hum, these can include fluorescent lamps, air purifiers, dehumidifiers and others.

In some cases, it can be loose grounding of the antenna mount or the braided/shield wire solder to the PL-250 connectors.

If it were mobile, then the antenna grounding is also a possibility. If the hum is higher than 60Hz and goes with the engine RPM, then the alternator of the vehicle has to be checked.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hums and freezes up????

The fan motor must have been stopping. If the fan stops, for sure the fins will freeze because there is no air flowing. common Fan motor problems defective bearing or bushing and starting condenser. If the bearing is defective, it will heat up and seize. Have the fan motor checked. The fact that the fins are freezing, means that there is enough freon and the compressor is working.
