Why is our a/c blowing room temp air when the setting is on cool?


It sounds like the compressor is not running. This could be due to a faulty thermostat, a bad start capacitor for the compressor, a bad compressor overload or simply a bad compressor. You would need a voltage meter to check all of these components.

Relays click when interior fan is on


Often the click which can be heard when the A.C. kicks in is the clutch on the A.C. compressor. Be sure that it isn't just this sound which you are hearing.
Also check the operation of the idle control valve which is supposed to raise the engine revs to compensate for heavy power drain. If this isn't working correctly, then this would explain the lights dimming under low revs.

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.

I have a Dometic 57915.531 air conditioner in my camper. When the compressor goes on the lights go dim. Then if left on it will trip the circuit breaker. When I reset the breaker and turn the AC back on...


Hi,
The compressor is not always starting...sometimes it tries but does not start...
It could be a capacitor and relay problem... or the compressor could be going bad...
Change the capacitor and start relay first and then see if that gets it going...

Here is a tip about trouble shooting your air conditioner...

I cannot get my wintair room air conditioner to stay on! It keeps cutting on and off, going from fan to air conditioning. Need help!!


It sounds like your air conditioner is doing what it is supposed to do. The compressor kicking in and out is an energy saving method of using the ac. When the thermostat (ball attached to evaporator coil) registers the set temperature the compressor kicks off.

Poetable AC compressor licks in for 10 min


It is probably either the high pressure switch or the frost control. The high temp switch usually trips because the condenser coil is dirty which does not allow it to exhaust heat very well. The frost control will trip if the system gets below 39 degrees on the pipes. This is usually do to low refrigerant or dirty filters. Good Luck!
