Why does my Dometic caravan airconditioner turn itself off after a few hours and won't restart for hours later?

There is a temperature controller safety switch on the compressor under the plastic cover for the wire connections. You need to determine the reason it is tripping first, so you can correctly diagnose the problem. If the compressor is indeed running hot there is probably a lack of freon or an internal motor winding problem. If the compressor seems to be at a normal temperature(High side of warm but not burning hot)then look to replace the temperature switch.

Breaker keeps tripping on generator when I turn on ac in travel trailer

4KW is marginal for HVAC compressor. Breakers get weak with time. Assuming th gen is running properly and the correct voltage is available. A HVAC unit can take 6 times the start current than it takes to run, so it is possible the inrush is too much

Hi jc escamilla
Check and repair your compressor unloader valves...
If they are stuck,broken,etc...then they will cause the problem you are experiancing.
Also check you oil level, low oil could be the cause also.

Rv airconditioner trips breaker

Does it trip when fan only , or when compressor for cool cuts in? Sounds like capacitor perhaps . Get back to me with model number, and whether it's a ducted system, or blows out at ceiling assembly.

I have an lg split system airconditioner. The unit starts up fine and runs for a few minutes. After a few minutes it trips the circuit breaker. Could you tell me what causes this? Thank you

Sounds like an electrical problem.. or the compressor is beginning to fail. Check the wiring connections on top of the compressor for burning etc ... If OK, the compressor may be shorted out.
Make sure the power has been switched OFF before any testing is done.. Usually an LG will show a fault code on the display on the internal unit but a dead short on the comp will happen to fast for this to occur. One way to isolate a compressor fault is to disconnect it.. If the unit runs ( fans etc) with the comp disconnected and does not trip the breaker , then you have narrowed down what the fault is.

I'm looking for an enigma split system airconditioner manual-I have an error message E5 with no compressor activity

E5 Communication errorbetween outdoor and indoor. Check output (call) from your indoor unit to out door unit by Volts meter. If no power in out door, you have to check setting of temp whether it's 23 and less than that and also mode in "Cool".

If power is there in out door and fan only running means compressor is tripped by overheated

During low voltage period window AC compressor shudders and kicks off, but fan runs, when voltage returns normal compressor runs.

low voltage issues causes higher amp draw and equipment to run a lot harder. whats causing the low voltage problem to the equipment? high amp draw of the compressor could be causing it to overheat and trip until the compressor physically cools down.

Flooded floorboards and iffy airconditioner in 01 Galant

the heater core lines are under the dash and when it starts leak i will flood the floor board. does the ac shut down even if you are running it on recirculate and on fresh air. it may be the compressor clutch. if that hasn't been replaced yet.
