Duo-therm 13500 btu

Do oyu know why my a/c keeps throwing the breaker. ok well i'll turn it on and it will run for a few hours and then throws the breaker. after it throws it i'll wait about an hour and then turn it back on and in like 5min it throws it again. we have tried almost everything. cleaning the filter, the drip pan, the coils, changed the breakers, put it on a seperate breaker, and cleaned all the componets on the unit itself. do you have a suggestion?

First I would check the size of the power supply cord to the coach. To small a line will cause a voltage drop which in turn will cause the amperage to increase. Check the supply voltage to the system.

Why does AC Duo-Therm thermost throw the breaker and needs set to approx 55/50 to run ?


`Try changing the breaker some times they get weak and will trip at start up. Also check for bare wire shorting out. Then check capacitor then fan motor spin blades to see if they spin easy and that bearings are not bad.. make sure all connections are tight with no corrosion. These problems show up more with short cycling then with long.

Buy a new one. Your repair will cost approx 2/3rd (or more) the price of your new unit. Your old unit has no warranty left while your new unit will have a warranty. :-)

Duo Therm AC won't cut off with thermostat


Hi, sounds to me like the thermostat is at fault.You have done nothing wrong to it but cover it up. The t-stat is what controls it, turns it on and off. The only other thing that would keep it on all the time would be that the thermostat wiring could be touching together from the stat up to the unit. You might check that before replacing stat. I have seen this many times.You can start the unit and go up top and disconnect the stat wire and it should stop the unit.Then its either the wire or stat.Let me know what you find,
Sincerely,Shastalaker7

Duo-therm quick cool


Your compressor is trying to restart after it shuts off which is causing a power draw down changing the sound of the fan speed change. Check voltage power supply and insure that the power supply cord is heavy enough to carry the necessary load.

Dometic a/c, duotherm thermostat, turns right back on after it reaches desired temperture.


I have a dometic 13500 BTU Roof mount a/c. It is set up with the duo-therm analog thermostat. The system cools fine. The problem is that the a/c gets down to the right temp, then it turns off like it should but turns right back on within a few seconds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
