I bought one but it was missing the cord, so I hooked it to the benchtop supply. I found out if you place positive to the red terminal/grey wires under the outside cover and negative to the blue/black wires it cools. With a DPDT switch and a couple of LEDs you could wire it so you dont need that special coleman cord, any lighter cord will work provided it can handle about 6 amps, I recommend 12 to 14 gauge wire and a 6 amp fuse.

Where you plug the cord into the cooler you will see red and blue on one side of cooler plug and red on one side and blue on the other side of the power cord. If you want toe cooler to work, plug the two together where the blues are both showing on the same side when connected.

The 5640 Coleman cooler motor runs, but unit does not cool.


This is a thermoelectric (TE) cooler. There is no gas' to replace in it's cooling system. It is possible the thermoelectric coupler has gone bad. Unfortunately Coleman does not seem to offer a replacement part. If you Google thermoelectric couplers, maybe you can find something on the web. Good Luck.

Coleman (RVP) 7000 AC unit compressor problem


I had a problem with my coleman mach 3 AC, we were at an RV park up at lake shasta CA and the fan would stay on but the compressor would come on for a few seconds and then trip off. It was the motor overload relay on the compressor that was tripping. the RV park was old and apparently the wiring to the panelboard at the RV park was too small, when you are drawing a lot of current there was too much voltage drop across their line, to make up for this the motor tries to draw more current and heats up the motor overload and it trips off. I solved this problem by buying an autoformer from Camping World, it senses a voltage drop and automatically boosts the voltage.

I am now having a seperate problem, the compressor is either locked up or has too much back pressure and trips off the service breaker when trying to start. The only solution I can see with my current problem is to replace the entire unit.

Coleman portable model 5640 cooler cord


Jo Ann,

You can google "coleman 5640" and quite a few websites will come up that offer repair parts and the cord is one of them. There are only three parts that you can still buy for that model cooler. The cord, the motor, and the removable tray. Hope this helps.

Coleman 5640 cooler


The cover on the inside just pulls off. Inside/Outside fans pull off. 2 screws to dismount motor. Unscrew leads to terminal. Most truckstops carry the motor, otherwise search for Colman 5640.

Have a coleman 5640 heating/cooling unit and the motor won't run unless just a tiny amount of pressure added?? Any suggestions?


Yes, to change from heat to cool is done by reversing the power plug that is close to the housing. Matching the blue on the plug(as I recall) makes it cool. The red to blue makes it a heater. If it is currently heating, the unit works fine, it just needs the polarity reversed.
Good luck,
Glenn
