Front unit high cool and high fan not working

The high cool and high fan does not come on now. However it sounds like the compressor on high cool does come on. Or at least it sounds like it does. Sounds like a hummm. It kicks on a minute or so after I turn on the high cool. But that is all it does. Low cool seems and low fan seems to work fine. Rear unit is working fine

    Do you think it could be the fan capasitor?

I would recommend you take this unit to an RV service center. The issue could be due to many variables. It could be something as simple as the controller board relay or a low freon level. You may also be able to call a regular home heating and airconditioning shop to take a look at the unit. Keep me posted and if you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance. Good Luck - Tech101

Just replace the fan ..... its seems there is some voltage problem

Posted on Jun 25, 2008

  • gopinath pasupathy Jun 25, 2008

    if your fan replacement does not work .........it looks like a control problem with the thermostat or relay board (if you have a wall mounted thermostat). If the compressor is coming on, then you need to look into the airflow of the unit. Whether or not the compressor is coming on, you need to check the voltage. Like every appliance on board, the air conditioner needs adequate power to operate. If the voltage is 110 volts a.c. or below, the effectiveness of the unit will start to suffer. After verifying correct voltage, we need to look at how the air conditioner does it's job- it requires adequate air flow over both the inside (evaporator) and outside (condenser) coils. If the air filter is clogged refrigerant will not be able to pick up enough heat from the inside air, and if the condenser coils are blocked by leaves, it will not be able to give off enough heat to the outside air.

    also check this

    the evaporator coils probably need cleaning . These can be seen when you remove the air filters, and possibly the inside air box. Likewise, the condenser coils can be seen after removing the upper shroud.

Please describe your controls. Does it not have low fan, high fan, low cool, high cool on the dial at ceiling? If yes, low cool or high cool setting should shut it down when temperature is reached via thermostat dial.

Hello

Sounds like the compressor is shuting down on high heat.There could be a couple reasons for this.
1 Check that proper voltage is being supplied to compressor.
2 Freon level may be low.This would be a service call.
3 Bad or intermitent connection at thermostat.
4 Main contacts to compressor sticking,usually burnt or pitted.

This really sounds like the unit is over heating the compressor to the point of triping the internal high limit switch and just taking that long to cool off before it resets. If it continues to do this go outside and run your water hose over the compressor for at least 30 minutes to cool the compressor down and see if it starts for you then. If so then your unit could be over charged and creating very high head pressures!

Compressor starts then shuts down like head pressure building to high


Make sure that your condenser fan is working. If your unit is water cooled make sure you have water flow.

A/c issue


Could be a couple things - one, if the fan switch for the AC condenser is not working, it'll keep the AC from kicking on, but that's usually seen by the compressor not coming on. When you activate the AC, do your RPM drop down at all? It should. If it does, the compressor is kicking on and you probably have a problem with the expansion valve, which is what flash chills the air. The car is pumping freon around but it's not cooling enough to cool the car. That's likely an expansion valve problem.

If you turn it on and the revs don't dip down momentarily, the compressor isn't coming on, and it could be the fan switch underhood or the AC relay.

Compressor fan


This sounds like it is caused by either a high pressure reset. Or the compressor is tripping a high temperature limit internally. One thing you may be able to do is to hose off the coil surface with a garden hose on the outside (condensing unit) this would allow the operating pressure to drop if it is dirty.

Hope this helps Ya

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter


Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
