Hi,
Sounds like the compressor is toast...if the caps have been changed and there is voltage there, you have done all you can...replace the compressor or buy new...

Turn my roof top ac on , fan runs but when compressor tries to run lights in camper dims 3 to 5 sec. don;t kick breaker off, any ideas?


You need to get a reading on the current draw of the compressor. Use a clamp on ampmeter to do this. Compare your reading with the data plate on the compressor. Your compressor may be getting ready to go out. You can also check the capacitor. If may be getting weak and need replacing. Another idea may be to install a hard start capacitor if the compressor is OK.

AC roof unit stops cooling after rain


No, the units are sealed and the rain should not have affected the system at all. I would remove the outer cover of the unit and access the capacitors. Your start capacitor may be bad. You can visually inspect this and tell if there is a problem. Small black relay on top of capacitor often burns out, if so, replace capacitor and relay. If this looks fine, then we need to start at the thermostat and work our way forward.

Thanks,

First of all, I think you mean 110 volts on your meter, not amps, just so we're on the same page. It sounds to me like you may have a capacitor problem on your compressor. I'll try to see if I can find you a part # if you have someone very experienced with electrical that can change it for you. they can be a little dangerous, so only someone familar with them should work with it. What the capacitor basically does is store voltage and uses it to help the big draw on start-up of the compressor, kind of like giving it a boost to get it started, and after it's up and running, all should be well if everything else is up to snuff. How old is the AC unit? Did it run well for you in the past? I'm asking this just in case it was a recent installation, with perhaps wrong size wire used. Should be minimum 12/2 , with 20amp breaker,if that means anything to you, or your mechanic.

Duo therm roof top a/c


Sounds like 1 of 3. Blower motor capacitor, relay or thermostat. Try to run fan only if that is an option and see.
