You need to use a meter to ensure that you are getting control voltage from the xfrmr. Also check it at the coil side of the contactor if you feel comfortable doing this but be careful of the line voltage side. If you are getting power on the coil side of the contactor usually a 24v signal from the tstat from the area labeled y and the contactor is not pulling in most likely you will need to replace the contactor. If the contactor is pulling in verify the amp draw on the compressor with the tag.

Coleman Mach 3 ac unit tries to start compressor & kicks off


50 foot extention cord not a problem IF it is at least 10 gauge and plugged in to a 20 amp circuit

Your compressor is shutting down for a lack of AC voltage would be my best guess

Compressor on my RV coleman ac unit bogging down


Take a look at your start capacitor. This the capacitor that kicks the compressor over when it tries to start. If the capacitor is bad, it cannot kick the compressor back over after the first cycle because the head pressure has not evened out yet. It is located in the upper unit on the side panel in a small box. Be careful, highly charged capacitors can zap you if you are not careful. Disconnect power and touch across the terminals with a meter or a screwdriver to discharge the capacitor.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

I have a coleman/evcon heat pump. When the thermostat kicks on the contacts kick in and hum but the compressor nor the fan run. Is this probably my capacitor has gone bad?


I would check the hig voltage power supply to the unit. Check the main breaker and make sure it is on. Check the disconnect and make sure there is power at that point to the condensing unit. The contactor will kick in from the low voltage in the control circuit.
