Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a model 600315321 roof a/c unit it is a due therm 5 years old. The unit was cooling fine when I went to bed. The next morning I noticed that the compressor was short cycling, the fan runs fine, I removed the cover and found no ice on anything.I cleaned the condenser but got very little dirt out. I think the start capicator or run capicator are bad. What due you think.

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

Sounds like a bad thermostat switch, (stuck close--or in run position).

SOURCE: Duo Therm compressor tries to start and kicks out

I don't think these little units have a start capacitor but what I would do is check that the on/off switch wires to make sure they aren't loose. Also check the wires to the compressor for loose wires as well. It is possible that these are the first signs that the compressor is about to fail. They also can act up some when they haven't been used for awhile and then you try and start them up. Try running the unit for a few hours without asking it to cycle. It might just be a sticky valve.

SOURCE: Dometec Briskair Duo-Therm Compressor won't quit running

Have you taken return air filter grille down at ceiling assy, & cleaned filter with dish soap & warm water? Check & see if you see little probe sticking out in behind there, and wipe it carefully as well, and make sure it's lined up to sense air flowing through there. Take a flashlight & look up into coils at front for lots of dust on them as well. Perhaps a thorough cleaning of all coils is in order if you say there's lots of dust, as choking airflow off with dust & dirt, will only shorten life of unit & use more hydro than necessary.

There is ice forming on the evaporator coils. This is either from a low freon charge or a leak in the seals or windows and doors. Could also be that the drains are not working and water is building up and freezing

AC compressor will not engage


It could be the capacitor, it could be a loose wire connection, it could be a delay switch or a contactor/relay.

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,

Jeff

Duo therm penquin 630215 went out, replace with what??


Actually thats a, Great Idea. And far Less Expensive.

1: The only thing i suggest is, Remember that a "Thermostats" Job is to Sense when the Temperature in the room is satisfied it Kicks off the Compressor, That is its Job.
2: The Front is Desinged to Cool Just the Front Area.
3: You Have 2 options
1: Close the Rear door when just Using the "Front Unit"
2; If you choose to Leave the "Rear Door" Open, Just make sure the "Rear Unit" is on Making the "Front Unit" Work far less.

You will be fine
Please Rate me, Thanks George
